1. "I read Claire Messud's 'The Emperor's Children,' I read Joseph O'Neill's 'Netherland' - but to me, they're not 9/11 novels. In 'The Emperor's Children,' 9/11 felt to me like a piece of the plot; the novel wasn't wrestling with what 9/11 meant. And 'Netherland' felt the same way. I liked both books a lot but I don't see them as 9/11 novels."

The poet Dylan Thomas, who liked a good drink at least as much as Alaska, said, "I've had eighteen straight whiskeys. I do believe that's a record," before dying. Alaska's favorite was playwright Eugene O'Neill: "Born in a hotel room, and--God damn it--died in a hotel room." Even car-accident victims sometimes have time for last words. Princess Diana said, "Oh God. What's happened?" Movie star James Dean said, "They've got to see us," just before slamming his Porsche into another car. I know so many last words. But I will never know hers."

He sniffed again and I could tell he was more in control. "And you can't ask me to sit by and watch you get all caught up in this guy. I can't handle that—thinking he swept you off your feet because he bathed in body spray and dressed up." His voice sounded rough. "I know you think I'm being funny right now, but I'm completely serious. Don't make me watch that happen.""You know my heart," I said. "It's yours."

"Is this when you tell me I'm your soul mate, O'Neill?"

19. "Evie hadn't always felt that way. For a year after James had died, she'd cupped his half-dollar pendant between her pressed palms and prayed fervently for a miracle, for a telegram that would say GOOD NEWS! IT WAS A TERRIBLE MISTAKE, AND PRIVATE JAMES XAVIER O'NEILL HAS BEEN FOUND, SAFE, IN A FARMHOUSE IN FRANCE. But no such telegram ever arrived, and whatever possible faith might have bloomed in Evie withered and died. Now she saw it as just another advertisement for a life that belonged to a previous generation and held no meaning for hers."

24. "Toinenkin seikka kohotti hänet muita korkeammalle: hän oli laskenut pöydälle avoimen kirjan. Siinä ravintolassa ei kukaan toinen ollut koskaan laskenut pöydälle avointa kirjaa. Kirja oli Terezalle salaisen killan tunnus. Hän saattoi taistella ympärillään leviävää karkeuden maailmaa vastaan vain yhdellä aseella: kirjoilla, varsinkin romaaneilla, joita hän lainasi kaupunginkirjastosta. Hän oli lukenut paljon, Fieldingistä Thomas Manniin. Kirjat olivat hänen näennäispakonsa elämästä, joka ei tyydyttänyt häntä. Mutta niillä oli merkityksensä myös esineinä: hänestä oli hauskaa kulkea kadulla kirja kainalossa. Hän käytti kirjaa kuin edellisen vuosisadan keikari tyylikästä keppiä. Kirja erotti hänet muista."

Secondly, that there may enter our hearts no desire and no wish at all of which we should be ashamed to make him a witness, while we learn to setall our wishes before his eyes, and even to pour out our whole hearts. Thirdly, that we be prepared to receive his benefits with true gratitude of heart and thanksgiving, benefits that our prayer reminds us come from his hand. (Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, trans. Ford Lewis Battles, ed. John T. McNeill [Louisville: Westminster John Knox, 1960], Book 3, chapter 20, section 3.)"

Today's Quote

Near the docks downtown he swerves off the highway and races the cab toward the end of a deserted parking area and it hits me somewhere, now, this moment, when he drives into and then over a dilapidated, rust-covered aluminum fence, heading toward water, that all I have to do is put the Walkman on, blot out the sound of the cabdriver, but my hands are twisted into paralyzed fists that I can't unclench, held captive in the cab as it hurtles toward a destination only the cabdriver, who is obviously deranged, knows. The windows are rolled down partially and I can feel the cool morning air drying the mousse on my scalp. I feel naked, suddenly tiny. My mouth tastes metallic, then it gets worse. My vision: a winter road. But I'm left with one comforting thought: I am rich - millions are not."
Author: Bret Easton Ellis
