From Lady Chatterley's Lover by D. H. Lawrence
The world is supposed to be full of possibilities, but they narrow down to pretty few in most personal experiences. There's lots of good fish in the sea...maybe...but the vast masses seem to be mackerel or herring, and if you're not a mackerel or herring yourself, you are likely to find very few good fish in the sea.
I love this becasue it sounded so much like me.
From The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde
I hope it did not end happily? I don't like novels that end happily. They depress me so much
From The Man Who Was Thursday by G. K. Chesterton

From Lady Orcale by Margaret Atwood:
Anything is the type of thing anyone would do, given the right circumstances.
Considering most of my own correspondences are done though letter of some form or other, and I do relate to others best through exchange of words and thoughts, this quote captures my own sentiments quite well.
....but a letter is the portrait of the soul
From Dangerous Liaisons by Choderlos de Laclos
