The opposite of spare time is, I guess, occupied time. In my case I still don’t know what spare time is because all my time is occupied. It always has been and it is now. It’s occupied by living. An increasing part of living, at my age, is mere bodily maintenance, which is tiresome. But […]

“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.
