Ludwig Bemelmans
“In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines
Lived twelve little girls in two straight lines
In two straight lines they broke their bread
And brushed their teeth and went to bed.
They left the house at half past nine
In two straight lines in rain or shine-
The smallest one was Madeline.”
Ludwig Bemelmans, Madeline

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“If personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures, then there was something gorgeous about him”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Margaret Atwood
“We thought we had such problems. How were we to know we were happy?”
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“And as I sat there brooding on the old, unknown world, I thought of Gatsby’s wonder when he first picked out the green light at the end of Daisy’s dock. He had come a long way to this blue lawn, and his dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it. He did not know that it was already behind him, somewhere back in that vast obscurity beyond the city, where the dark fields of the republic rolled on under the night.

Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter—to-morrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. . . . And one fine morning——

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Oscar Wilde
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde
