Phyllis McGinley
“A bit of trash now and then is good for the severest reader. It provides the necessary roughage in the literary diet.”
Phyllis McGinley

John Cowper Powys
“To read great books does not mean one becomes ‘bookish’; it means that something of the terrible insight of Dostoyevsky, of the richly-charged imagination of Shakespeare, of the luminous wisdom of Goethe, actually passes into the personality of the reader; so that in contact with the chaos of ordinary life certain free and flowing outlines emerge, like the forms of some classic picture, endowing both people and things with a grandeur beyond what is visible to the superficial glance.”
John Cowper Powys

Corrie ten Boom
“Forgiveness is an act of the will, and the will can function regardless of the temperature of the heart.”
Corrie ten Boom

Michael Pollan
“The shared meal elevates eating from a mechanical process of fueling the body to a ritual of family and community, from the mere animal biology to an act of culture.”
Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto

Lewis Carroll
“Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
