  • By now, the camouflage had become my skin. My friends wouldn't want to know. Who would want to know? I certainly didn't want to know. All I wanted was to hold my assumptions to the light, and to watch them sparkle in their facets, as all sham gemstones do.

    Light   Skins   Watches  
    Darin Strauss (2011). “Half a Life: A Memoir”, p.101, Random House
  • A tragedy's first act is crowded with supporting players: witnesses crimping their faces, policemen scribbling in pads and making radio calls, EMS guys unfolding equipment, tubes and wheels.

    Player   Guy   Tragedy

    Darin Strauss (2011). “Half a Life: A Memoir”, p.186, Random House

    Darin Strauss (2011). “Half a Life: A Memoir”, p.101, Random House
  • Diminish the influence of fate

    Darin Strauss (2001). “Chang and Eng”, p.222, Penguin
  • Sin in the Second City is a masterful history lesson, a harrowing biography, and - best of all - a superfun read. The Everleigh story closely follows the turns of American history like a little sister. I can't recommend this book loudly enough.

    Senior   Mom   Kissing  
    Darin Strauss (2011). “Half a Life: A Memoir”, p.32, Random House
  • Love wasn't a thing you fell in, but rose to. It was what stopped you from falling.

    Fall   Rose  
    Darin Strauss (2014). “More Than It Hurts You”, p.69, Atlantic Books Ltd
  • Everybody wants life to speak to them with special kindness. Every personal story begs to be steered toward reverie, toward some relief from unpleasant truths: That you are a self, that beyond anything else you want the best for that self. That, if it is to be you or someone else, you need it to be you, no matter what.

    Kindness   Self   Special  
    Darin Strauss (2011). “Half a Life: A Memoir”, p.57, Random House
  • The cracks in old friendships are measured in awkward pauses.

    Darin Strauss (2014). “More Than It Hurts You”, p.233, Atlantic Books Ltd

    Self   Deception   Dying  
    Darin Strauss (2001). “Chang and Eng”, p.13, Penguin
  • Passion and platonic friendliness, often contrary siblings, frequently wear similar faces to hide the great distance between them.

    Darin Strauss (2011). “Half a Life: A Memoir”, p.14, Random House
  • Sometimes one learns too early, as I did, what the world is capable of.

    Darin Strauss (2001). “Chang and Eng”, p.20, Penguin
