Orson Scott Card
“No human being, when you understand his desires, is worthless. No one's life is nothing. Even the most evil of men and women, if you understand their hearts, had some generous act that redeems them, at least a little, from their sins.”
Orson Scott Card, Speaker for the Dead

Arundhati Roy
“Ammu said that human beings were creatures of habit, and it was amazing the kind of things one could get used to.”
Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things

Arundhati Roy
“Nothing mattered much. Nothing much mattered. And the less it mattered the less it mattered. It was never important enough. Because Worse Things had happened. In the country that she came from poised forever between the terror of war and the horror of peace Worse Things kept happening”
Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things

George Orwell
“Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.”
George Orwell, 1984

Betty  Smith
“There had to be dark and muddy waters so that the sun could have something to background it's flashing glory.”
Betty Smith
