I never thought I'd like fantasy as a child since my mother didn't. She loved Little Women and Laura Ingalls Wilder and I did too. Why would I like what she didn't like? So I didn't read The Hobbit until I was an adult. HELLO! Loved it!

E.B. White
“Why did you do all this for me?' he asked. 'I don't deserve it. I've never done anything for you.' 'You have been my friend,' replied Charlotte. 'That in itself is a tremendous thing.”
E.B. White, Charlotte's Web

Edna St. Vincent Millay
“My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends—
It gives a lovely light!”
Edna St. Vincent Millay, A Few Figs from Thistles

Edna St. Vincent Millay
“We were so wholly one I had not thought
That we could die apart. I had not thought
That I could move,—and you be stiff and still!
That I could speak,—and you perforce be dumb!
I think our heart-strings were, like warp and woof
In some firm fabric, woven in and out;
Your golden filaments in fair design
Across my duller fibre.”
Edna St. Vincent Millay, Collected Poems

Charlotte Brontë
“A safe, still night; too serene for the companionship of fear. We know that God is everywhere; but certainly we feel His presence most when His works are on the grandest scale spread before us: and it is in the unclouded night sky, where His worlds wheel their silent course, that we read clearest His infinitude, His omnipotence, His Omnipresence.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Mark Strand
“Ink runs from the corners of my mouth.
There is no happiness like mine.
I have been eating poetry.”
Mark Strand, Selected Poems
