“Having to struggle gave me the chance to demonstrate strength of character.
The Speed of Dark”

Jeanette Winterson
“Book collecting is an obsession, an occupation, a disease, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it must do it. Those who do not do it, think of it as a cousin of stamp collecting, a sister of the trophy cabinet, bastard of a sound bank account and a weak mind.”
Jeanette Winterson

Mark Twain
“If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.”
Mark Twain

Mahatma Gandhi
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Katherine Anne Porter
“Don't you love being alive?" asked Miranda. "Don't you love weather and the colors at different times of the day, and all the sounds and noises like children screaming in the next lot, and automobile horns and little bands playing in the street and the smell of food cooking?"
"I love to swim, too." said Adam.
"So do I," said Miranda, "we never did swim together.”
Katherine Anne Porter, Pale Horse, Pale Rider
