E.L. Doctorow
“I can assure you Ernest Hemingway was wrong when he said modern American literature began with Huckleberry Finn. It begins with Moby-Dick, the book that swallowed European civilization whole.”
E.L. Doctorow

“Christians are the salt of the earth...Nothing grows where they've been.”
Donald Hays, The Dixie Association
