Rainbow Rowell
“I’m extra good at wanting things. I want things until I feel sort of sick about them. I want enough for two normal people, at least.”
Rainbow Rowell, Landline

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“I showed the grown ups my masterpiece, and I asked them if my drawing scared them. They answered:"why be scared of a hat?" My drawing was not a picture of a hat. It was a picture of a boa constrictor digesting an elephant.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Stephen King
“Love isn’t soft, like those poets say. Love has teeth which bite and the wounds never close.”
Stephen King, The Body

John Dufresne
“Inez and I had been in the same book club for a while. She once told me that literary theory was reading without imagination, and I’ve loved her ever since.”
John Dufresne, No Regrets, Coyote

“And what about for the first eight, ten years of his life, when loving parents encouraged his obsession with dragons and secret worlds and animals in vests who poured tea and drove motorcars and who gave him to read Tolkien and Susan Cooper and the Brothers Grimm and Madeleine L’Engle and C. S. Lewis? Is a boy supposed to leave his imagination on the side of the road when he boards the bus to manhood?”
David Shafer, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot
