George Saunders' Writing Aphorisms

“The moment when things get complicated, that’s what we try to move towards.”

“A father and son in a bedroom doesn’t mean that something sexual has to happen.”

“Any monkey in a story had better be a dead monkey,”

“Aunts and uncles are best construed as the heliological equivalent of small-scale weather systems,”

“The number of rooms in a fictional house should be inversely proportional to the years during which the couple living in that house enjoyed true happiness.”
