Ralph Fletcher
“When students write from experience, they can breathe those specifics into their writing- dialect, odd smells, precise names of plants- that can animate even the most tired and tedious text.”
Ralph Fletcher, What a Writer Needs

S.I. Hayakawa
“In a very real sense, people who have read good literature
have lived more than people who cannot or will not read.
It is not true that we have only one life to lead; if we can read,
we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.

S. I. Hayakawa

Mary Oliver
“The poet dreams of the classroom

I dreamed
I stood up in class
And I said aloud:

Why is algebra important?

Sit down, he said.

Then I dreamed
I stood up
And I said:

Teacher, I’m weary of the turkeys
That we have to draw every fall.
May I draw a fox instead?

Sit down, he said.

Then I dreamed
I stood up once more and said:

My heart is falling asleep
And it wants to wake up.
It needs to be outside.

Sit down, he said.”
Mary Oliver, Swan: Poems and Prose Poems

E.B. White
“I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve (or save) the world and a desire to enjoy (or savor) the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”
E. B. White

Gloria Steinem
“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.”
Gloria Steinem
