“Reading maketh a full man, conference a ready man, and writing an exact man.” -Sir Francis Bacon

“My task which I am trying to achieve is, by the power of the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel –it is, before all, to make you see. That –and no more, and it is everything. If I succeed, you shall find there according to all your deserts: encouragement, consolation, fear, charm –all you demand; and, perhaps, also that glimpse of truth for which you have forgotten to ask.” -Joseph Conrad

“We tell ourselves stories in order to live.” -Joan Didion
