Jack London

Tom Robbins, Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas

Laurie Halse Anderson
“Too much sun after a Syracuse winter does strange things to your head, makes you feel strong, even if you aren't.”
Laurie Halse Anderson, Speak

Arthur C. Clarke
“I'm sure the universe is full of intelligent life. It's just been too intelligent to come here.”
