C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle

Terry Pratchett
“If you want to change a whole people, then you start with the girls. It stands to reason: they learn faster, and they pass on what they learn to their children.”
Terry Pratchett, Snuff

Zora Neale Hurston
“There are years that ask questions and years that answer.”
