"Dear Father, if you’re out there
and if you can hear me, protect us from
harm and by all means
comfort the weak and the poor, the wageless and
homeless, hungry, foreclosed, wandering, woefully
afflicted, but if you get just a minute after that
could you please please please
spite the living fuck out of this asshole—I mean it
go old-school Job on this rich fat fuck
this expert who apparently slept through
history class, through every relationship
anyone was ever in, and through the entire
twentieth century, this sure dickhead who
has only now discovered that there is
a goddamned flaw in us all."

Jess Walter, The Financial Lives of the Poets

"For us, the consumption is all; the quality of the product is immaterial."

Nick Hornby, Fever Pitch

"Like most depressions that plague people who have been more fortunate than most, I was ashamed of mine because there appeared to be no convincing cause for it; I just felt as though I had come off the rails somewhere."

Nick Hornby, Fever Pitch

"Many fans express anger, against their own team or the supporters
of the opponents – real, foul-mouthed fury that upsets and saddens me. I have never felt the desire to do that; I just want to be on my own to think, to wallow for a little while, and to recover the strength necessary to go back and start all over again. These men, the business types, were sympathetic but unconcerned. They offered me a drink and I declined, so they shook my hand and offered commiserations and I disappeared; to them, it really was only a game, and it probably did me good to spend time with people who behaved for all the world as if football were a diverting entertainment, like rugby or golf or cricket. It’s not like that at all, of course, but just for an afternoon it was interesting and
instructive to meet people who believed that it was."

Nick Hornby, Fever Pitch

"It is true to say that most of us were defined only by the number and extent of our interests. Some boys had more records than others, and some knew more about football; some were interested in cars, or rugby. We had passions instead of personalities, predictable and uninteresting passions at that, passions which could not reflect and illuminate us in the way that my girlfriend’s did … and this is one of the most inexplicable differences between men and women."

Nick Hornby, Fever Pitch

"The truth is this: for alarmingly large chunks of an average day, I am a moron ."

Nick Hornby - Fever Pitch
