John Irving quotes

“Your memory is a monster; you forget - it doesn't. It simply files things away. It keeps things for you, or hides things from you - and summons them to your recall with a will of its own. You think you have a memory; but it has you!”

“Oh FUCK the longings and agonies of youth.”

“I take people very seriously. People are all I take seriously, in fact. Therefore, I have nothing but sympathy for how people behave - and nothing but laughter to console them with.”

“In other words I not only have to read that book, I have to read everything that author wrote.If you're going to write a book review, get it right. Do your fucking homework and get it right.”
