Tom Robbins
“A sense of superior to any religion so far devised.”
Tom Robbins, Jitterbug Perfume

Barbara Kingsolver
“In a lifetime of hearing people celebrate weekends, she finally saw what all the fuss was about. By no means did her workload cease on Saturday, but it did shift gears. If her kids wanted to pull everything out of the laundry basket to make a bird's nest and sit in it, fine. Dellarobia could even sit in there with them and incubate, if she so desired. Household chores no longer called her name exclusively. She had an income. She'd never before understood how much her life in this little house had felt to her like confinement in a sinking vehicle after driving off a bridge. ..... To open a hatch and swim away felt miraculous. Working outside the home took her about fifty yards from her kitchen, which was far enough. She couldn't see the dishes in the sink.”
Barbara Kingsolver, Flight Behavior

“Everything you're sure is right can be wrong in another place.”
Barbara Kingsolver, The Poisonwood Bible

Barbara Kingsolver
“Don’t try to make life a mathematics problem with yourself in the center and everything coming out equal. When you’re good, bad things can still happen. And if you’re bad, you can still be lucky.”
Barbara Kingsolver, The Poisonwood Bible

Tom Robbins
“There are many things worth living for, a few things worth dying for, and nothing worth killing for.”
Tom Robbins, Even Cowgirls Get the Blues
