Show Me a Sign by Ann Clare LeZotte
"I love to learn history through fiction, and it's really exciting and fascinating when I know absolutely nothing about the subject. How did I not know that there were regions in the US (and around the world) where clusters of deaf people lived among " Read more of this review »

“Educating people is the best tool we have against forgetting (the events of the holocaust and T4). We must make sure nothing like T4 ever happens again.”

“They said 'specialist children's wards,'
But they meant children-killing centers.
They said 'final medical assistance'
But they meant murder.”
Ann Clare LeZotte, T4

“Language is a key.
I felt so many doors were opening to me.”
Ann Clare LeZotte, T4

“The only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt or caught out or humiliated. And the only thing people regret is that they didn't live boldly enough, that they didn't invest enough heart, didn't love enough. Nothing else really counts at all.”
Ted Hughes, Letters of Ted Hughes

“Follow, poet, follow right
To the bottom of the night,
With your unconstraining voice
Still persuade us to rejoice;

With the farming of a verse
Make a vineyard of the curse,
Sing of human unsuccess
In a rapture of distress;

In the deserts of the heart
Let the healing fountain start,
In the prison of his days
Teach the free man how to praise.”
W.H. Auden, Another Time

“Literature is my Utopia. Here I am not disenfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourses of my book friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness.”
Helen Keller, The Story of My Life

“And I know now that all the time I was trying to get
out of the dust,
the fact is,
what I am,
I am because of the dust.
And what I am is good enough.
Even for me.”
Karen Hesse, Out of the Dust

“A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us.”
Franz Kafka
