"I live in my own little world. But it's ok, they know me here." -Lauren Myracle

Books, especially the ones you write yourself, are your own little worlds. They can create a family and new friends; they make you feel happy, sad, frightened, warm and fuzzy, and perhaps most of all, grateful. Grateful for imagination, grateful for an escape, grateful for the ability to create something that you can have all to yourself or share with the world.

“We can never be entirely original, as artists or as people. The genius and vision of those who came before us is too great for us to digress from entirely. Though, as creatures that are compelled to test and surpass our own creative abilities, we must always strive for that originality in everything we do in order to move the world forward.”
Jessica Lave

“When the chips are down, you are given
the chance to find the strength you never knew you had and put it toward the greater good. Or go over to the dark side. You know, if that’s how you roll.”
Jessica Lave

“We all have to face our faults and mistakes, and then choose to overcome them or let them drag us down.”

“There is no trap so deadly as the trap you set for yourself.”
Raymond Chandler, Long Goodbye

“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”
Oscar Wilde

“Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.”
Groucho Marx, The Essential Groucho: Writings For By And About Groucho Marx

“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
