Philip Pullman

“Having children makes you no more a parent than having a piano makes you a pianist.”
Michael Levine

Ernest Hemingway
“All thinking men are atheists.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

Tom Wolfe
“A cult is a religion with no political power.”
Tom Wolfe

Philip Pullman, His Dark Materials
