Gary Thorp Quotes

"Cooking gives you the opportunity to meet the things you eat. You can touch each carrot or olive and get to know its smell and texture.You can feel its weight and notice its color and form. If it is going to become part of you, it seems worthy, at least, of acknowledgment, respect, and thanks. It takes much time and care in order for things to grow, and many labors are needed to bring these ingredients to the kitchen. There is a lot to be grateful for that takes place between the wheat field and the dumpling."

William Sarabande Quotes

"He did not want to feel old. He did not want to feel the weight of his age hovering above him, mocking him out of the core of a mans pride, waiting to descend upon his mind and body."

Quotes About Stuff Being Hard

"Under funs new administration, writing fiction becomes a way to go deep inside yourself and illuminate precisely the stuff you dont want to see or let anyone else see, and this stuff usually turns out (paradoxically) to be precisely the stuff all writers and readers share and respond to, feel. Fiction becomes a weird way to countenance yourself and to tell the truth instead of being a way to escape yourself or to present yourself in a way you figure you will be maximally likable. This process is complicated and confusing and scary, and also hard work, but it turns out to be the best fun there is.The fact that you can now sustain the fun of writing only by confronting the very same unfun parts of yourself youd first used writing to avoid or disguise is another paradox, but this one isnt any kind of bind at all. What it is is a gift, a kind of miracle, and compared to it the reward of strangers affection is as dust, lint." - Author: David Foster Wallace
