a 50 in 52 Project quote from The Hours by Michael Cunningham

A 50 in 52 Project Quote!

“We throw our parties; we abandon our families to live alone in Canada; we struggle to write books that do not change the world, despite our gifts and our unstinting efforts, our most extravagant hopes. We live our lives, do whatever we do, and then we sleep. It’s as simple and ordinary as that. A few jump out windows, or drown themselves, or take pills; more die by accident; and most of us are slowly devoured by some disease, or, if we’re very fortunate, by time itself. There’s just this for consolation: an hour here or there when our lives seem, against all odds and expectations, to burst open and give us everything we’ve ever imagined, though everyone but children (and perhaps even they) know these hours will inevitably be followed by others, far darker and more difficult. Still, we cherish the city, the morning; we hope, more than anything, for more.

Heaven only knows why we love it so.”

from The Hours by Michael Cunningham (that’s him in the photo)

a 50 in 52 Project quote from Charming Billy by Alice McDermott

A 50 in 52 Project Quote!

“In the arc of an unremarkable life, a life whose triumphs are small and personal, whose trials are ordinary enough, as tempered in their pain as in their resolution of pain, the claim of exclusivity in love requires both a certain kind of courage and a good dose of delusion.”

from Charming Billy by Alice McDermott (that’s her in the photo)

A 50 in 52 Project Quote!

“ ‘That’s a big trunk,’ James said, as we jammed in the leathery old case that looked so much like the black heart of some leviathan. ‘It fits a tuba, three suitcases, a dead dog, and a garment bag almost perfectly.’ ”
