Alice Hoffman
“Books may well be the only true magic.”
Alice Hoffman

Pablo Picasso
“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”
Pablo Picasso

Norton Juster
“And now," he continued, speaking to Milo, "where were you on the night of July 27?"

"What does that have to do with it?" asked Milo.

"It's my birthday, that's what," said the policeman as he entered "Forgot my birthday" in his little book. "Boys always forget other people's birthdays.”
Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth

Stephen King
“The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.”
Stephen King, The Gunslinger

Ray Bradbury
“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you're there.

It doesn't matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that's like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
