George Orwell
“If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.”
George Orwell, 1984

Elizabeth Gaskell
“Loyalty and obedience to wisdom and justice are fine; but it is still finer to defy arbitrary power, unjustly and cruelly used--not on behalf of ourselves, but on behalf of others more helpless.”
Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South

Marcus Tullius Cicero
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Janet Fitch
“
Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you'll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way.”
Janet Fitch, White Oleander

Elizabeth Gaskell
“But suppose it was truth double strong, it were no truth to me if I couldna take it in. I daresay there's truth in yon Latin book on your shelves; but it's gibberish and no truth to me, unless I know the meaning o' the words.”
Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South
