F. Scott Fitzgerald
1896 - 1940

American novelist and short story writer, author of The Great Gatsby, Tender is the Night, and other works

We run faster and faster, hoping some day to catch up with the past, which we have irretrievably lost.

quoted in Out of Ireland: The Story of Irish Emigration to North America by Kerby Miller
Either you think - or else others have to think for you and take power from you, pervert and discipline your natural tastes, civilize and sterilize you.

1934 - from Tender is the Night
