Charlotte Perkins Gilman
“We all need one another; much and often. Just as every human creature needs a place to be alone in, a sacred, private "home" of his own, so all human creatures need a place to be together in, from the two who can show each other their souls uninterruptedly, to the largest throng that can throb and stir in unison.”
Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Women and Economics

Harlan Ellison
“Did you have one of those days today, like a nail in the foot? Did the pterodactyl corpse dropped by the ghost of your mother from the spectral Hindenburg forever circling the Earth come smashing through the lid of your glass coffin? Did the New York strip steak you attacked at dinner suddenly show a mouth filled with needle-sharp teeth, and did it snap off the end of your fork, the last solid-gold fork from the set Anastasia pressed into your hands as they took her away to be shot? Is the slab under your apartment building moaning that it cannot stand the weight on its back a moment longer, and is the building stretching and creaking? Did a good friend betray you today, or did that good friend merely keep silent and fail to come to your aid? Are you holding the razor at your throat this very instant? Take heart, comfort is at hand. This is the hour that stretches. Djan karet. We are the cavalry. We're here. Put away the pills. We'll get you through this bloody night. Next time, it'll be your turn to help us.
"Eidolons" (1988)”
Harlan Ellison

Neil Gaiman
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making're Doing Something.”
Neil Gaiman

Octave Mirbeau
“‎The greatest danger of a terrorist's bomb is in the explosion of stupidity that it provokes.”
Octave Mirbeau

John Newton
“God sometimes does His work with gentle drizzle, not storms.”
John Newton, Amazing Grace
