Kurt Vonnegut
“It is a tragedy, perhaps, that human beings can get so much energy and enthusiasm from hate. If you want to feel ten feet tall and as though you could run a hundred miles without stopping, hate beats pure cocaine any day. Hitler resurrected a beaten, bankrupt, half-starved nation with hatred and nothing more. Imagine that.”
Kurt Vonnegut, If This Isn't Nice, What Is?: Advice for the Young

Robert A. Heinlein
“A prude is a person who thinks that his own rules of propriety are natural laws.”
Robert A. Heinlein

Anne Brontë
“It is better to arm and strengthen your hero, than to disarm and enfeeble your foe.”
Anne Brontë

Kurt Vonnegut
“Don’t give up on books. They feel so good—their friendly heft. The sweet reluctance of their pages when you turn them with your sensitive fingertips. A large part of our brains is devoted to deciding what our hands are touching, is good or bad for us. Any brain worth a nickel knows books are good for us.”
Kurt Vonnegut, If This Isn't Nice, What Is?: Advice for the Young

Irwin Shaw
“There are too many books I haven’t read, too many places I haven’t seen, too many memories I haven’t kept long enough.”
Irwin Shaw
