Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“Let there be nothing harmonious about our children's playthings, lest they grow up expecting peace and order, and be eaten alive.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Mother Night

“It is a mistake to use intense words without carefully weighing and measuring them, or they will have already been used when one needs them later.”
Guy Sajer, The Forgotten Soldier

Robin Sloan
“I've never listened to an audiobook before, and I have to say it's a totally different experience. When you read a book, the story definitely takes place in your head. When you listen, it seems to happen in a little cloud all around it, like a fuzzy knit cap pulled down over your eyes”
Robin Sloan, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

E.T.A. Hoffmann
“O prejudice, prejudice that cries out to Heaven, what a hold you have on humanity, and in particular on those specimens of humanity known as publishers!”
E.T.A. Hoffmann

Elizabeth Gaskell
“It is the first changes among familiar things that make such a mystery of time to the young; afterwards we lose the sense of the mysterious. I take changes in all I see as a matter of course. The instability of all human things is familiar to me, to you it is new and oppressive." (Mr. Bell)”
Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South
