Roald Dahl
“So please, oh please, we beg, we pray,
Go throw your TV set away,
And in its place you can install
A lovely bookshelf on the wall.
Then fill the shelves with lots of books.”
Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Pat Conroy
“There is such a thing as too much beauty in a woman and it is often a burden as crippling as homeliness and far more dangerous. It takes much luck and integrity to survive the gift of perfect beauty, and its impermanence is its most cunning betrayal.”
Pat Conroy, The Prince of Tides

Mary Ann Shaffer
“Moses: God or crowd control?!?”
Mary Ann Shaffer, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
tags: humor

Pat Conroy
“My wound is geography. It is also my anchorage, my port of call.”
Pat Conroy, The Prince of Tides

Diana Gabaldon
“The rest of the journey passed uneventfully, if you consider it uneventful to ride fifteen miles on horseback through rough country at night, frequently without benefit of roads, in company with kilted men armed to the teeth, and sharing a horse with a wounded man. At least we were not set upon by highwaymen, we encountered no wild beasts, and it didn't rain. By the standards I was becoming used to, it was quite dull.”
Diana Gabaldon, Outlander
