„Если вы не делаете ничего неожиданного, вас не ждет ничего неожиданного.“

„Ад — это не другие, это когда нет других.“


„Food. Drink. Sleep. Books. They are all drugs.“ The Fat Woman's Joke

„Worry less about what other people think about you, and more about what you think about them.“

„guilt to motherhood is like grapes to wine“

„Nothing happens, and nothing happens, and then everything happens.“

„I am not cynical. I am just old. I know what is going to happen next.“ Chalcot Crescent

„Truly Alice, books are wonderful things; to sit alone in a room and laugh and cry, because you are reading, and still be safe when you close the book; and having finished it, discover you are changed, yet unchanged! To be able to visit the City of Invention at will, depart at will – that is all, really, education is about, should be about.“ Letters to Alice: On First Reading Jane Austen


„She could see that to lose a sibling was hard: it could only seem unnatural:out of time, out of order, a vicious re-run of your own departure into nothingness.“ Worst Fears

„One must be careful with words. Words turn probabilities into facts and by sheer force of
definition translate tendencies into habits.“

„Absolutely,' she said. 'The more you pay attention to the body, the less attention you've got left to pay the soul. I really do understand that.“ Darcy's Utopia

„Loving is upsetting. That's the point of it.“ The Fat Woman's Joke


„Truly, books are wonderful things; to sit alone in a room and laugh and cry, because you are reading, and still be safe when you close the book; and having finished it, discover you are changed, yet unchanged!“

„It is the memory of past happiness that makes the present so intolerable.“ The Fat Woman's Joke

„Not satisfied with what he's got? Is that it? That's husbands all over. Ungrateful pigs. You do everything for them, you bring up their kids, you cook their food, you wash their clothes, you warm their beds, you fuss over your face day after day so they'll fancy you, you wear yourself out to keep them happy and at the end of it all, what happens? They find someone else they fancy more. Someone young some man hasn't had the chance to wear out yet. Marriage is a con trick. A girl should marry a rich man, then at least she'd have a fur coat to keep her warm in her old age.“ The Fat Woman's Joke

„To do good to one is to do bad to another. But you don't need to hear my excuses. They are the same that everyone makes to themselves when faced with the misery of others; though they would like to do the right thing, they simply fail to do so and look after themselves instead.“
