More of Bethany's books…
Anne Carson
“To be running breathlessly, but not yet arrived, is itself delightful, a suspended moment of living hope.”
Anne Carson, Eros the Bittersweet
tags: hope

Jennifer Egan
“That we have some history together that hasn’t happened yet.”
Jennifer Egan, A Visit from the Goon Squad

Joan Didion
“A place belongs forever to whoever claims it hardest, remembers it most obsessively, wrenches it from itself, shapes it, renders it, loves it so radically that he remakes it in his own image.”
Joan Didion

Aldous Huxley
“Actual happiness always looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn't nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand.”
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
