Ruth Wariner
“As I pulled the covers up and let Micah settle in next to me, I heard Mom’s voice in my ears: Children need to get used to being in the dark. She’d repeated that countless times throughout my childhood. No, I thought, they don’t.”
Ruth Wariner, The Sound of Gravel

John Hawkes
“Motive is never easy. Sometimes it occurs to one only later.”
John Hawkes

Hettie Jones
“Anyone in pursuit of art is responding to a desire to make visible that which is not, to offer the unknown self to others.”
Hettie Jones

Gillian Anderson
“I know people who are embarrassed to be American. They don't like showing their passports. It's becoming a scary place. It takes someone very brave not to be quiet, someone who doesn't mind death threats, their life being turned upside down, news cameras outside their door. There is no freedom of speech in America anymore. They are not living up to the constitution. There's so much fear in America and control.”
Gillian Anderson

Anna Akhmatova
“Each of our lives is a Shakespearean drama raised to the thousandth degree.”
Anna Akhmatova
