Nancy E. Turner
“Sometimes I feel like a tree on a hill, at the place where all the wind blows and the hail hits the tree the hardest. All the people I love are down the side aways, sheltered under a great rock, and I am out of the fold, standing alone in the sun and the snow. I feel like I am not part of the rest somehow, although they welcome me and are kind. I see my family as they sit together and it is like theyh ave a certain way between them that is beyond me. I wonder if other folks ever feel included yet alone.”
Nancy E. Turner, These Is My Words: The Diary of Sarah Agnes Prine, 1881-1901

Barbara Kingsolver
“I attempted briefly to consecrate myself in the public library, believing every crack in my soul could be chinked with a book.”
Barbara Kingsolver, The Poisonwood Bible

Martin Luther King Jr.
“The function of education, therefore, is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. But education which stops with efficiency may prove the greatest menace to society. The most dangerous criminal may be the man gifted with reason, but with no morals.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

Natasha Solomons
“Jack thought of his wife, filled with nothing but sorrow, wandering the earth remembering the dead and happier times.”
Natasha Solomons

Toni Morrison
“If you surrendered to the air, you could ride it.”
Toni Morrison, Song of Solomon
