Betty  Smith
“No matter where its seed fell, it made a tree which struggled to reach the sky. It grew in boarded-up lots and out of neglected rubbish heaps, and it was the only tree that grew out of cement. It grew lushly, but only in the tenements districts.... That was the kind of tree it was. It liked poor people.”
Betty Smith, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

Betty  Smith
“Laurie's going to have a mighty easy life all right.
Annie Laurie McShane! She'll never have the hard times we had, will she?
No. And she'll never have the fun we had, either.
"Gosh! We did have fun, didn't we, Neeley?"

Poor Laurie, said Francie pityingly.”
Betty Smith, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

Kate DiCamillo
“There ain't no way you can hold onto something that wants to go, you understand? You can only love what you got while you got it.”
Kate DiCamillo, Because of Winn-Dixie

Lisa See
“In our country we call this type of mother love teng ai. My son has told me that in men's writing it is composed of two characters. The first means pain; the second means love. That is a mother's love.”
Lisa See, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan

Desmond Tutu
“It always comes back to our insecurities, as we say, "Oh, I'm not as good as you." So instead of accepting that perhaps I am not as good as someone else in some ways and being comfortable with who I am as I am, I spend all my time denigrating you, trying to cut you down to my self-perceived size. The sad problem is that we see ourselves as being quite terribly small. Instead of spending my time being envious, I need to celebrate your and my different gifts, even if mine are perhaps less spectacular than yours.”
Desmond Tutu, God Has a Dream: A Vision of Hope for Our Time
