Quentin Blake
“I don't wait for inspiration. I'm not, in fact, quite sure what inspiration is, but I'm sure that if it is going to turn up, my having started work is the precondition of its arrival.”
Quentin Blake, Words and Pictures

Studs Terkel

Studs Terkel

“Make it a rule never to give a child a book you would not read yourself.”
George Bernard Shaw
