Daniel B. Botkin
“Life has had to deal with environmental change, especially climate change, since the beginning of its existence on Earth. Species adjust or go extinct, and both have happened. For life-forms with our kinds of cells—eukaryotic, the kind with distinct organelles—the average existence of a species is about 1 million years, and, on average, one species goes extinct a year, at least of the species we have named and know, including those we know only from fossil records."

-Dan Botkin, excerpt from THE MOON IN THE NAUTILUS SHELL.”
Daniel Botkin, Moon in the Nautilus Shell: Discordant Harmonies Reconsidered: From Climate Change to Species Extinction, How Life Persists in an Ever-Changing World

“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”

Langston Hughes
“I loved my friend
He went away from me
There's nothing more to say
The poem ends,
Soft as it began-
I loved my friend.”
Langston Hughes

“May your adventures bring you closer together, even as they take you far away from home.”
Trenton Lee Stewart, The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey

Langston Hughes
“Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.”
Langston Hughes
