H.G. Wells
“For my own part, I was much occupied in learning to ride the bicycle, and busy upon a series of papers discussing the probable developments of moral ideas as civilization progressed.”
H.G. Wells

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
“You must never behave as if your life belongs to a man. Do you hear me?” Aunty Ifeka said. “Your life belongs to you and you alone.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Half of a Yellow Sun

Emma Goldman
“The most violent element in society is ignorance. ”
Emma Goldman

Jesmyn Ward
“But I am not that eloquent, so I shut my mouth and smile.”
Jesmyn Ward, Men We Reaped

Truman Capote
“I've always thought a body would have to be sick and dying before they saw the Lord. And I imagined that when He came it would be like looking at the Baptist window: pretty as coloured glass with the sun pouring through, such a shine you don't know it's getting dark. And it's been a spooky feeling. But I'll wager it never happens. I'll wager at the very end a body realizes the Lord has already shown Himself. That things as they are' - her hand circles in a gesture that gathers clouds and kites and grass and Queenie pawing earth over her bone - 'just what they've always senn, was seeing Him. As for me, I could leave the world with today in my eyes.”
Truman Capote, A Christmas Memory
