Maud Hart Lovelace
“We're growing up," Betsy said aloud. She wasn't even sure she liked it. But it happened, and then it wasn't irrevocable. There was nothing you could do about it except try and see that you grew up into the kind of human being you wanted to be. "I'd like to be a fine one," Betsy thought quickly and urgently.”

“Betsy returned to her chair, took off her coat and hat, opened her book and forgot the world again.”
Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy and Tacy Go Downtown

Gabrielle Zevin
“Do you like Moby Dick?" he asks.

"I hate it," she says. "And I don't say that about many things. Teachers assign it, and parents are happy because their kids are reading something of 'quality.' But it's forcing kids to read books like that that make them think they hate reading.”
Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Jennifer Worth
“Bah! Suffragettes. I've no time for suffragettes. They made the biggest mistake in history. They went for equality. They should have gone for power!”
Jennifer Worth, Shadows of the Workhouse

Dan Rather
“It is important not to confuse “patriotism” with “nationalism.” As I define it, nationalism is a monologue in which you place your country in a position of moral and cultural supremacy over others. Patriotism, while deeply personal, is a dialogue with your fellow citizens, and a larger world, about not only what you love about your country but also how it can be improved.”
Dan Rather, What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism
