Some things that were said

An out-of-context quote from Aimee Bender:
“A story is an illusion on the page, and to think that that illusion has to be governed by reality doesn’t sit right with me.”
Several out-of-context quotes from Joyce Carol Oates:
“Writers and artists are haunted by memories — sometimes not even by their own memories.”
“Sometimes in an ordinary life there are these moments of grace that unite us.”
“I’m basically writing all the time . . . Sometimes I feel desperate. I don’t want to stop writing because I’m afraid I’ll die in my sleep.”
“I owe my existence to the fact that someone was murdered . . . an act of violence that was never really explained and never punished.”
