“And I love the idea that one day, completely out of the blue, someone or something could come hurtling down from the sky and change my life, for ever.”
Sophie Anderson, The House with Chicken Legs

“Where's your home then?" asked the Snork Maiden.
"Nowhere," said Snufkin a little sadly, "or everywhere. It depends how you look at it.”
Tove Jansson, Comet in Moominland

“You must go on a long journey before you can really find out how wonderful home is.”
Tove Jansson, Comet in Moominland

“It needn't look like any particular thing at all. How could we imagine that we could make a world as perfect and as lovely as the world that God has made? All we can do is to do our best. Paint and draw. Create your own beautiful imperfect world.”
David Almond, The Colour of the Sun

“They shouldn't leave things out. They just shouldn't. They have to paint it all, the whole thing, and they shouldn't be afraid of that. If they hold us tight enough, so tight we know they love us, it won't matter what they say. Their love will get us through it.”
Adam Baron

“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.”
Margaret Mead
