The Sound of Glass by Karen   White
“Do you have mosquitoes in Maine?” Owen asked. “Oh, yes. The mosquito is the unofficial state bird of Maine, I think.” He grinned. “Daddy used to say that about Georgia.” “Well, South Carolina’s is the palmetto bug, just in case you were wondering.”

The Mortsafe by Lillian Stewart Carl
“How a cat the size of a loaf of bread could make itself weigh the equivalent of, well, a sack of cement, was yet another mystery of physics.”

Dwight D. Eisenhower
“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”
Dwight D. Eisenhower

Christopher Hitchens
MT [Mother Teresa] was not a friend of the poor. She was a friend of poverty. She said that suffering was a gift from God. She spent her life opposing the only known cure for poverty, which is the empowerment of women and the emancipation of them from a livestock version of compulsory reproduction.”
Christopher Hitchens
