Victor Hugo
“A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought. There is visible labor and there is invisible labor.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Louisa May Alcott
“Some stories are so familiar its like going home.”
Louisa May Alcott

L. Frank Baum
“As they passed the rows of houses they saw through the open doors that men were sweeping and dusting and washing dishes, while the women sat around in groups, gossiping and laughing.

What has happened?' the Scarecrow asked a sad-looking man with a bushy beard, who wore an apron and was wheeling a baby carriage along the sidewalk.

Why, we've had a revolution, your Majesty -- as you ought to know very well,' replied the man; 'and since you went away the women have been running things to suit themselves. I'm glad you have decided to come back and restore order, for doing housework and minding the children is wearing out the strength of every man in the Emerald City.'

Hm!' said the Scarecrow, thoughtfully. 'If it is such hard work as you say, how did the women manage it so easily?'

I really do not know,' replied the man, with a deep sigh. 'Perhaps the women are made of cast-iron.”
L. Frank Baum, The Marvelous Land of Oz

Victor Hugo
“Not being heard is no reason for silence.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

L. Frank Baum
“That proves you are unusual,' returned the Scarecrow; 'and I am convinced that the only people worthy of consideration in this world are the unusual ones. For the common folks are like the leaves of a tree, and live and die unnoticed.”
L. Frank Baum, The Land Of Oz
