Book cover for Gathering Shadows (Finding Sanctuary, #1)
“Religion is something men made up so they’d feel better. A fantasy designed to make us think there’s something more to life than there really is.”
Kimberly Brubaker Bradley
“I told you, nobody goes into foster care for good reasons. Foster care might be better than anything you’ve ever had in your life so far, and it will still never be as good as what you should have had. If the family you were born into was what it should have been.”
Kimberly Brubaker Bradley, Fighting Words

George Orwell
“When we’ve finished with it, people like you will have to learn it all over again. You think, I dare say, that our chief job is inventing new words. But not a bit of it! We’re destroying words—scores of them, hundreds of them, every day. We’re cutting the language down to the bone. The Eleventh Edition won’t contain a single word that will become obsolete before the year 2050.”
George Orwell, 1984

“Their interlocking lives formed an entire world. They were the cogs of a human engine that was proud of being self-sufficient through trade and the small-scale production of goods and services, and of its neighborly courtesy.”
Natalia Sanmartín Fenollera, The Awakening of Miss Prim

Donalyn Miller
“After all, if we are not micromanaging every aspect of reading for students, can we call what we are doing teaching?”
Donalyn Miller, The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child

Donalyn Miller
“I want my students to learn what life readers know: reading is its own reward. Reading is a university course in life; it makes us smarter by increasing our vocabulary and background knowledge of countless topics. Reading allows us to travel to destinations that we will never experience outside of the pages of a book. Reading is a way to find friends who have the same problems we do and who can give advice on solving those problems. Through reading, we can witness all that is noble, beautiful, or horrifying about other human beings. From a book’s characters, we can learn how to conduct ourselves. And most of all, reading is a communal act that connects you to other readers, comrades who have traveled to the same remarkable places that you have and been changed by them, too.”
Donalyn Miller, The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child
