Nora Ephron
“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad about My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman

Neil Gaiman
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making're Doing Something.”
Neil Gaiman

Anne Brontë
“It is better to arm and strengthen your hero, than to disarm and enfeeble your foe.”
Anne Brontë

Hans Christian Andersen
“But a mermaid has no tears, and therefore she suffers so much more.”
Hans Christian Andersen, The Little Mermaid

Jacqueline Susann
“I've got a library copy of Gone with the Wind, a quart of milk and all these cookies. Wow! What an orgy!”
Jacqueline Susann, Valley of the Dolls
