Jasper Fforde
“Whereas story is processed in the mind in a straightforward manner, poetry bypasses rational thought and goes straight to the limbic system and lights it up like a brushfire. It's the crack cocaine of the literary world.”
Jasper Fforde, First Among Sequels

Mary Shelley
“Beware; for I am fearless, and therefore powerful.”
Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

John Darnielle
“When you punish a person for dreaming his dream
Don't expect him to thank or forgive you.”
John Darnielle

Leslie Marmon Silko
“I will tell you something about stories . . . They aren't just entertainment. Don't be fooled. They are all we have, you see, all we have to fight off illness and death.”
Leslie Marmon Silko, Ceremony

Sherman Alexie
“Imagination is the politics of dreams; imagination turns every word into a bottle rocket. . . . Imagine every day is Independence Day and save us from traveling the river changed; save us from hitchhiking the long road home. Imagine an escape. Imagine that your own shadow on the wall is a perfect door. Imagine a song stronger than penicillin. Imagine a spring with water that mends broken bones. Imagine a drum which wraps itself around your heart. Imagine a story that puts wood in the fireplace.”
Sherman Alexie, The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven
