I'm going to think about this sentence often throughout election season: "There is nothing that reveals poverty of mind more quickly than not knowing how to be witty except at the expense of others."

Eleanor Roosevelt
“No matter how plain a woman may be, if truth and honesty are written across her face, she will be beautiful.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

J.R.R. Tolkien
“End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

Margaret Atwood
“Another belief of mine: that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise.”
Margaret Atwood, Cat's Eye

Nora Ephron
“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad about My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman

Margaret Atwood
“A word after a word after a word is power.”
Margaret Atwood
