Ursula K. Le Guin
“I go on writing in both respectable and despised genres because I respect them all, rejoice in their differences, and reject only the prejudice and ignorance that dismisses any book, unread, as not worth reading." -- "On Despising Genres," essay”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Birthday of the World and Other Stories

Zaman Ali
“Justice is not natural among people, but the struggle for justice is the most noble act in society. Because justice may not be possible, but as it’s the way toward the desired society for each one to live in, that’s why its struggle is noble and regard as the highest act.”
Zaman Ali, GOVERNMENT Servant, Not Master

Richard Bowes
“Writing is the place where I can be as bold and compassionate and wise as I choose.”
Richard Bowes, Dust Devil on a Quiet Street

Sebastian Junger
“Combat isn't where you might die -- though that does happen -- it's where you find out whether you get to keep on living. Don't underestimate the power of that revelation. Don't underestimate the things young men will wager in order to play that game one more time.”
Sebastian Junger, War

Will Ludwigsen
“The whole world's a ghost factory. We all fade like the paint on these buildings, sometimes from too much sun, sometimes from too little. We blur and blend to the murky shades left behind when something vivid dies.”
Will Ludwigsen, In Search Of and Others
