What a lady. I'm devoted follower of Annie, wherever she goes. I stumbled upon Grace (Eventually), one of several spiritual memoirs and her whiny, revelatory way of speaking changed the way I think about most everything.

Dorothy Parker
“There's life for you. Spend the best years of your life studying penmanship and rhetoric and syntax and Beowulf and George Eliot, and then somebody steals your pencil.”
Dorothy Parker, The Portable Dorothy Parker

Dorothy L. Sayers
“[N]othing about a book is so unmistakable and so irreplaceable as the stamp of the cultured mind. I don't care what the story is about or what may be the momentary craze for books that appear to have been hammered out by the village blacksmith in a state of intoxication; the minute you get the easy touch of the real craftsman with centuries of civilisation behind him, you get literature.”
Dorothy L. Sayers, The Letters of Dorothy L. Sayers. Vol. 1, 1899-1936: The Making of a Detective Novelist

Charles Haddon Spurgeon
“Have your heart right with Christ, and he will visit you often, and so turn weekdays into Sundays, meals into sacraments, homes into temples, and earth into heaven.”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Dorothy Parker
“This wasn't just plain terrible, this was fancy terrible. This was terrible with raisins in it."

[Women Know Everything!]”
Dorothy Parker

Madeleine L'Engle
“If our lives are truly "hid with Christ in God," the astounding thing is that this hiddenness is revealed in all that we do and say and write. What we are is going to be visible in our art, no matter how secular (on the surface) the subject may be.”
Madeleine L'Engle, Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art
