Frank Schaeffer
“It seems to me that a spiritual sensibility is built into human nature. Formal religion may or may not disappear but art, love and a desire to find beauty will remain.”
Frank Schaeffer, Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in God: How to give love, create beauty and find peace

Siddhartha Mukherjee
“In an age of increasingly mechanized production, the genesis of scientific knowledge remains an unyieldingly, obstreperously hand-hewn process. It is among the most human of our activities. Far from being subsumed by the dehumanizing effects of technology, science remains our last stand against it.”
Siddhartha Mukherjee, The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2013

Jane Austen
“Wherever you are you should always be contented, but especially at home, because there you must spend the most of your time.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

Claire Svendsen
“You’re horse is nice too,” Amber said softly.”
Claire Svendsen, Secret Rider

Amy  Stewart
“John Adams, writing to his friend William Tudor in 1818, said, “I know not why we should blush to confess that molasses was an essential ingredient in American independence. Many great events have proceeded from much smaller causes.”
Amy Stewart, The Drunken Botanist: The Plants that Create the World's Great Drinks
