Faithful readers know that the annual Pennwriters Conference in Pennsylvania is one of my yearly highlights.

Ursula K. Le Guin
“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Left Hand of Darkness

Emily Dickinson
“We never know how high we are till we are called to rise. Then if we are true to form our statures touch the skies.”
Emily Dickinson, Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson

Alexandre Dumas
“Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes.”
Alexandre Dumas

Henry David Thoreau
“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation. From the desperate city you go into the desperate country, and have to console yourself with the bravery of minks and muskrats. A stereotyped but unconscious despair is concealed even under what are called the games and amusements of mankind. There is no play in them, for this comes after work. But it is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things..”
Henry David Thoreau, Civil Disobedience and Other Essays

Shirley Jackson
“A pretty sight, a lady with a book.”
Shirley Jackson, We Have Always Lived in the Castle
