“Stories help me. To live. To work. To find the meaning hidden in every dream, ever leaf, every drop of dew.”
T. A. Barron

“What makes this danger so terrible is that humans tip the balance of your world. No other species can make such a difference, for good or ill. If humans can live in harmony with other forms of life, the world rejoices. If not, the world suffers--and may not survive.”
T. A. Barron

“And I came to understand, in a way I never had before, that books are truly the stuff of miracles. I even dared to dream that someday, somehow, I might surround myself with books from many times and many tongues...”
T.A. Barron, The Lost Years of Merlin
