Madeleine L'Engle
“I think your mythology would call them fallen angels. War and hate are their business, and one of their chief weapons is un-Naming - making people not know who they are. If someone knows who he is, really knows, then he doesn't need to hate. That's why we still need Namers, because there are places throughout the universe like your planet Earth. When everyone is really and truly Named, then the Echthroi will be vanquished.”
Madeleine L'Engle, A Wind in the Door

Mark Twain
“Never let schooling interfere with your education”
Mark Twain

Mary Oliver
“Instructions for living a life.
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.”

“Don't try to win over the haters; you are not a jackass whisperer.”
