“I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.”
Olivia Wilde

Gary Provost
“This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals–sounds that say listen to this, it is important.”
Gary Provost

Jaime Gil de Biedma
“I believed that I wanted to be a poet, but deep down I just wanted to be a poem.”
Jaime Gil de Biedma

John Green
“It is so hard to leave—until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.”
John Green, Paper Towns

Voltaire
“It is hard to free fools from the chains they revere.”
Voltaire
