“Honey is sweet, "and so is knowledge, but knowledge is like the bee that made that sweet honey, you have to chase it through the pages of a book." (taken from "Thank you, Mr. Falker" )”
Patricia Polacco

“Genius is neither learned nor acquired.
It is knowing without experience.
It is risking without fear of failure.
It is perception without touch.
It is understanding without research.
It is certainty without proof.
It is ability without practice.
It is invention without limitations.
It is imagination without boundaries.
It is creativity without constraints.
It is...extraordinary intelligence!”
Patricia Polacco

“You’d have to go through at least four different hugs to get from the kitchen to the front room. Those relatives!’.”
Patricia Polacco, Thank You, Mr. Falker
