    Lewis Carroll
    “When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’

    ’The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’

    ’The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master — that’s all.”
    Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass

    Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

    J.D. Salinger
    “I would like you to clear up for me just what the hell your motives are for saying it.' He hesitated, but not long enough to give Franny a chance to cut in on him.

As you say, treasure's treasure, God damn it, and it seems to me that ninety per cent of all the world-hating saints in history were just as acquisitive and unattractive, basically, as the rest of us are.”
    J.D. Salinger, Franny and Zooey

    J.D. Salinger
    “This is God's universe, buddy, not yours, and he has the final say about what's ego and what isn't.”
    J.D. Salinger, Franny and Zooey
