Olive Schreiner
“And so, it comes to pass in time, that the earth ceases for us to be a weltering chaos. We walk in the great hall of life, looking up and round reverentially. Nothing is despicable - all is meaningful; nothing is small - all is part of a whole, whose beginning and end we know not. The life that throbs in us is a pulsation from it; too mighty for our comprehension, no too small.
And so, it comes to pass at last, that whereas the sky was at first a small blue rag stretched out over us and so low that our hands might touch it, pressing down on us, it raises itself into an immeasurable blue arch over our heads, and we begin to live again.”
Olive Schreiner, The Story of an African Farm

Lemony Snicket
“I'm not a stranger," I said, and pointed to his book. "I'm someone who reads the same authors you do.”
Lemony Snicket, When Did You See Her Last?

Veronica Roth
“I have never had parents who set good examples, parents whose expectations were worth living up to, but she did. I can see them within her, the courage and the beauty they pressed into her like a handprint.”
Veronica Roth, Allegiant

Amy Harmon
“Sometimes a beautiful face is false advertising.”
Amy Harmon, Making Faces

Albert Camus
“We must all know that each mediocrity, each surrender, each act of complacency will harm us as much as the enemy's rifles.”
Albert Camus, Camus at Combat: Writing 1944-1947
