I truly enjoyed getting to know Calpurnia Tate! She was a girl ahead of her times. A girl with a scientific bent in a world that did not credit woman with brains or skill. Other than her grandpa, who encouraged her to learn everything she could, ther ...more

Charlotte Brontë
“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Sarah Addison Allen
“Sometimes its necessary to embrace the magic, to find out what's real in life, and in one's own heart.”
Sarah Addison Allen, First Frost

Tahereh Mafi
“Synonyms know each other like old colleagues, like a set of friends who’ve seen the world together. They swap stories, reminisce about their origins and forget that though they are similar, they are entirely different, and though they share a certain set of attributes, one can never be the other. Because a quiet night is not the same as a silent one, a firm man is not the same as a steady one, and a bright light is not the same as a brilliant one because the way they wedge themselves into a sentence changes everything.”
Tahereh Mafi, Unravel Me

Rachel Randolph
“The kitchen has become a place for nurturing souls as well as coaxing good meals into being. Cooking also serves as a living metaphor, for beauty and delight does not appear in a vacuum of a perfectly ordered and clean life, or kitchen. It takes a lot of messes, small and large, to create a life — and a feast — worth its weight in goodness.”
Rachel Randolph, We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook: A Mom and Daughter Dish about the Food That Delights Them and the Love That Binds Them

Tracy K. Smith
“Wasn’t it strange that a poem, written in my vocabulary and as a result of my own thoughts or observations, could, when it was finished, manage to show me something I hadn’t already known? Sometimes, when I tried very hard to listen to what the poem I was writing was trying to tell me, I felt the way I imagined godly people felt when they were trying to discern God’s will. “Write this,” the poem would sometimes consent to say, and I’d revel in a joy to rival the saints’ that Poetry—this mysterious presence I talked about and professed belief in—might truly be real.”
Tracy K. Smith, Ordinary Light: A memoir
