In the words of Anita Brookner


‘The essence of romantic love is that wonderful beginning,
after which sadness and impossibility may become the rule.’

‘You can never betray the people who are dead…;the dead can’t answer slurs, but I’m here.’

“I would love to think Jesus wants me for a sunbeam, but he doesn’t”

‘No blame should attach to telling the truth.
But it does, it does.’

‘Real love is a pilgrimage. It happens when there is no strategy,
but it is very rare because most people are strategists.’

‘Writing novels preserves you in a state of innocence –
a lot passes you by- simply because your attention is otherwise diverted.’
