John Fowles (RIP)

There are many reasons why novelists write, but they all have one thing in common - a need to create an alternative world.
- John Fowles

An answer is always a form of death.
- John Fowles

The basis of shame is not some personal mistake of ours, but the ignominy, the humiliation we feel that we must be what we are without any choice in the matter, and that this humiliation is seen by everyone.
- John Fowles

Our accepting what we are must always inhibit our being what we ought to be.
- John Fowles
