“My life is a perfect graveyard of buried hopes.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Sarah Vowell
“Being a nerd, which is to say going too far and caring too much about a subject, is the best way to make friends I know. For me, the spark that turns an acquaintance into a friend has usually been kindled by some shared enthusiasm . . . At fifteen, I couldn't say two words about the weather or how I was doing, but I could come up with a paragraph or two about the album Charlie Parker with Strings. In high school, I made the first real friends I ever had because one of them came up to me at lunch and started talking about the Cure.”
Sarah Vowell, The Partly Cloudy Patriot

Frances Mayes
“A Chinese poet many centuries ago noticed that to re-create something in words is like being alive twice.”
Frances Mayes, Under the Tuscan Sun

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”
