“The world was hers for the reading.”
Betty Smith, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

“Listen to them, the children of the night. What music they make!”
Bram Stoker

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.”
William Shakespeare, The Tempest

“The voice of the sea is seductive, never ceasing, whispering, clamoring, murmuring, inviting the soul to wander in abysses of solitude.”
Kate Chopin, The Awakening

“I will tell you what I will do and what I will not do. I will not serve that in which I no longer believe, whether it calls itself my home, my fatherland, or my church: and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defense the only arms I allow myself to use -- silence, exile, and cunning.”
James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
