Dorothy L. Sayers
“I think my mother's talents deserve a little acknowledgement. I said so to her, as a matter of fact, and she replied in these memorable words: "My dear child, you can give it a long name if you like, but I'm an old-fashioned woman and I call it mother-wit, and it's so rare for a man to have it that if he does you write a book about him and call him Sherlock Holmes.”
Dorothy L. Sayers, Clouds of Witness

Frida Kahlo
“At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can.”
Frida Kahlo

“I love staring at my books for hours just trying to decide which book to read next. Doing that is almost as fun as actually reading them.”
Love The Stacks Bookstore

Astrid Lindgren
“A childhood without books – that would be no childhood. That would be like being shut out from the enchanted place where you can go and find the rarest kind of joy.”
Astrid Lindgren

Georgette Heyer
“Fair Fatality, you are the most unusual female I have encountered in all my thirty-eight years!" "You can't think how deeply flattered I am!" she assured him. "I daresay my head would be quite turned if I didn't suspect that amongst so many a dozen or so may have slipped from your memory.”
Georgette Heyer, Venetia
