 “How can you come to understand your life when even the beginning is so complicated: a single cell imprinted with the color of your eyes and the shape of your face the pattern on your palm and the moods that will shadow you through your life.

― Dan Chaon, You Remind Me of Me

“There is a stage you reach, Deagle thinks, a time somewhere in early middle age, when your past ceases to be about yourself. Your connection to your former life is like a dream or delirium, and that person who you once were is merely a fond acquaintance, or a beloved character from a storybook. This is how memory becomes nostalgia. They are two very different things – the same way that a person is different from a photograph of a person.”
― Dan Chaon, Stay Awake

 “I never wanted to get to a point in my life where I knew what was going to happen next. I felt like most people just couldn’t wait until they found themselves settled down into a routine and they didn’t have to think about the next day, or the next year, or the next decade because it was all planned out for them. I can’t understand how people can settle for having just one life.”
― Dan Chaon, Await Your Reply

In the end, you are going to be judged, and all the times that you’re not at your most dignified are the ones that will be recalled in all their vivid, heartbreaking detail. And then of course these things will be distorted and exaggerated and replayed over and over, until eventually they turn into the essence of you: your cartoon. ”
― Dan Chaon, Among the Missing

 “Sometimes he thinks that if he could only trace the path of his life carefully enough, everything would become clear. The ways that he screwed up would make sense. He closes his eyes tightly. His life wasn’t always a mistake, he thinks, and he breathes uncertainly for awhile, trying to find a pathway into unconsciousness, into sleep. ”
― Dan Chaon, You Remind Me Of Me

“There are so many people we could become, and we leave such a trail of bodies through our teens and twenties that it’s hard to tell which one is us. How many versions do we abandon over the years?”

― Dan Chaon, Among the Missing

One Final Bonus – Dan Chaon Quote 

“What if you believed that everything in life was like a prize? What if you thought of the world as a big random drawing, and you were always winning things, the world offering them up with a big grin, like an emcee’s: Here you go, Hollis. Here is a motorcycle. Here is a little boy who loves you. Here is a weird experience, here is something bad that you should mull over because it will make you a better person. What if you could think that life was this free vacation you’d won, and you won just because you happened to be alive?”

― Dan Chaon, Among the Missing
