Ei ollut tarkoitus. Olin täysin väärässä. Siinä mitä tein mutta ennen kaikkea siinä mitä sanoin: sanat oli tarkoitettu toiselle ihmiselle. Usko minua nyt, koska uskoit minua aikaisemmin: olet kaunis ja täydellinen, enkä tarkoittanut mitään, mitä sanoin. Olin väärässä, tein virheen, eikä kukaan olisi ikinä voinut olla enemmän väärässä kuin minä.
Hanya Yanagihara (A Little Life)
There's no such thing as life without bloodshed," McCarthy says philosophically. "I think the notion that the species can be improved in some way, that everyone could live in harmony, is a really dangerous idea. Those who are afflicted with this notion are the first ones to give up their souls, their freedom. Your desire that it be that way will enslave you and make your life vacuous.
Cormac McCarthy
Horror. I can't manage it. I become--well--horrified. Self-help books have a similar effect. When asked, "Any literary genre you simply can't be bothered with?" - (By the Book: Writers on Literature and the Literary Life from the NYT Book Review, by Pamela Paul)
Emma Thompson
Ihmismeri liikkui kiihkeästi Rautatieasemalla, kuin elämä olisi juoksemaisillaan heiltä karkuun. Elämä joka lähtee ja jonkun on juostava se kiinni ja huudettava: odottakaa nyt helvetissä minua herranen aika pysähtykää.
Emma Juslin (Frida ja Frida)
It is the heavy reality of the writing life which makes the “why” so easy to forget: Gutless rejection letters, denigrating revision letters, incompetent copy edits, insulting reviews, late checks, disappointing sales, down-trending print-runs, shrinking advances, royalties paid in a geological timeframe, imprints folding, publishers downsizing their lists and conglomerating their overhead.  One day your editor expresses all the enthusiasm of an overtired undertaker. The next day your agent demonstrates all the faith and commitment of a diseased streetwalker. Your book is packaged with a cover that would embarrass anyone who wasn’t raised in a Red Light district. You give a thoughtful interview only to discover the resultant article describes you as churning out potboilers. Three people show up at your book signing, two of them because they thought you were someone else; the third person came because you owe him money. When you make the New York Times list, a neighbor asks you “which” NYT list you’re on, because there must be a separate one for the trash you write. Though you’ve been publishing regularly for years, you know people who ask, every single time they see you, if you still write. (No, I fell back on my independent wealth when the going got tough.)
Laura Resnick (Rejection, Romance and Royalties: The Wacky World of a Working Writer)
