Julia Julia said: "I stopped reading this brand new book that I correctly knew I would love, not because I didn’t like it, but because I couldn’t finish it in the few days until it is due at the library. I need to start reading immediately after I check it out and I ne...more "

Ursula K. Le Guin
“In reading a novel, any novel, we have to know perfectly well that the whole thing is nonsense, and then, while reading, believe every word of it. Finally, when we're done with it, we may find - if it's a good novel - that we're a bit different from what we were before we read it, that we have changed a little... But it's very hard to say just what we learned, how we were changed.”
Ursula K. Le Guin

Armistead Maupin
“Laugh all you want and cry all you want and whistle at pretty men in the street and to hell with anybody who thinks you're a damned fool!”
Armistead Maupin, More Tales of the City

Lois McMaster Bujold
“Miles was…the thing is, he was afflicted with a severe birth injury. He grew up pretty much crippled, so he poured all his frustrated energy into his intellect. Since the Vorkosigan family motto might as well be, Anything worth achieving is worth overachieving, the effect was pretty frightening. And it worked for him, so he did it some more.”
Lois McMaster Bujold, Captain Vorpatril's Alliance

Lauren Beukes
“Fashion is only different skins for different flavours of you.”
Lauren Beukes, Zoo City

Terri Windling
“We''re all misfits here,” he says, almost proudly. “That's why I started this squat, after all.  For people like us, who don't fit in anywhere else.  Halfies and homos and hopeless romantics, the outcast and outrageous and terminally weird.  That's where art comes from, Jimmy, my friend.  From our weirdnesses and our differences, from our manic fixations, our obsessions, our passions.  From all those wild and wacky things that make each of us unique.”
Terri Windling, Welcome to Bordertown
