“A good friend of mine once said, "I have never met a bigot who was a reader as a child.”
Marion Dane Bauer, Am I Blue?: Coming Out from the Silence

“It is the nature of stories to leave out far more than they include.”
Marion Dane Bauer, The Very Little Princess

“The power of fiction is that it gives us, as readers, the opportunity to move inside another human being, to look out through that person's eyes, hear with her ears, think with his thoughts, feel with her feelings. It is the only form of art which can accomplish that feat so deeply, so completely. And thus it is the perfect bridge for helping us coming to know the other - the other inside as well as outside ourselves. (x)”
