“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”
Henry James

Elizabeth Cady Stanton
“The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls.”
Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Margaret Mitchell
“Life's under no obligation to give us what we expect.”
Margaret Mitchell

Matthew Buckley
“It wasn't school that I dreaded at all. School was not half bad. In many ways, this year had been downright fun. No, what I hated most about school was the fact that I had to come here all by myself. Simon and Peter went to their classes and did their own things, and I had to do my own thing. The thing I loved about summer was that I shared it with my brothers. Sure, my brothers and I often fought, but the best times in my life came when I was with them. School was a time when I had to go and do something without a brother at my side.”
Matthew Buckley, Chickens in the Headlights
