Kathleen and 5 other people liked Matt's status update
Matt
Matt is on page 82 of 635 of The Portrait of a Lady: Isabel’s originality was that she gave one an impression of having intentions of her own. “Whenever she executes them,” said Ralph, “may I be there to see!”
Kathleen and 8 other people liked Kusaimamekirai's status update
Kusaimamekirai
Kusaimamekirai is on page 270 of 482 of Independent People: "The tyranny of mankind; it was like the obstinate drip of water falling on a stone and hollowing it little by little; and this drip continued, falling obstinately, falling without pause on the souls of the children."
This is such a beautiful story and even more beautiful writing.

Kathleen is on page 292 of 427 of Mansfield Park: "But Shakespeare one gets acquainted with without knowing how. It is a part of an Englishman's constitution. His thoughts and beauties are so spread abroad that one touches them everywhere; one is intimate with him by instinct."

Audre Lorde
“... poetry is not a luxury. It is a vital necessity of our existence. It forms the quality of the light within which we predicate our hopes and dreams toward survival and change, first made into language, then into idea, then into more tangible action. Poetry is the way we help give name to the nameless so it can be thought. The farthest horizons of our hopes and fears are cobbled by our poems, carved from the rock experiences of our daily lives.”
Audre Lorde

William Saroyan
“When you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”
William Saroyan

Margaret Atwood
“Another belief of mine: that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise.”
Margaret Atwood, Cat's Eye

Leo Tolstoy
“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”
Leo Tolstoy

Ray Bradbury
“You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.”
Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing
