Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

Judy Garland
“Always be a first rate version of yourself and not a second rate version of someone else.”
Judy Garland

Arnold Bennett
“The real Tragedy is the tragedy of the man who never in his life braces himself for his one supreme effort-he never stretches to his full capacity, never stands up to his full stature.”

E.B. White

Arnold Bennett
“Any change, even a change for the better is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.”
Arnold Bennett
