Jonathan Safran Foer – My greatest fear is feeling…


“My greatest fear is feeling like a professional novelist. Somebody who creates characters, who sits down and has pieces of paper taped to the wall – what’s going to happen in this scene, or this act. What I like is for it to be a much more scary, sloppy reflection of who I am.”
-Jonathan Safran Foer

Jonathan Safran Foer – Kids are a great analogy…


“Kids are a great analogy. You want your kids to grow up, and you don’t want your kids to grow up. You want your kids to become independent of you, but it’s also a parent’s worst nightmare: That they won’t need you. It’s like the real tragedy of parenting.”
-Jonathan Safran Foer

Jonathan Safran Foer – The kind of funny irony…


“The kind of funny irony is that a lot of people talk about ethical meat eating as if it’s a way to care about things, but also not to alienate yourself from the rest of the world. But it’s so much more alienating than vegetarianism.”
-Jonathan Safran Foer
