Anthony Ray Hinton
“Innocent men don’t run. Except sometimes innocent men need to run. This is true in Alabama and everywhere. If you’re poor and black, sometimes your best and only chance is to run.”
Anthony Ray Hinton, The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row

Susan Orlean
“The library is a whispering post. You don't need to take a book off a shelf to know there is a voice inside that is waiting to speak to you, and behind that was someone who truly believed that if he or she spoke, someone would listen. It was that affirmation that always amazed me. Even the oddest, most peculiar book was written with that kind of courage -- the writer's belief that someone would find his or her book important to read. I was struck by how precious and foolish and brave that belief is, and how necessary, and how full of hope it is to collect these books and manuscripts and preserve them. It declares that stories matter, and so does every effort to create something that connects us to one another, and to our past, and to what is still to come.”
Susan Orlean, The Library Book

Hilaire Belloc
“When I am dead, I hope it may be said: "His sins were scarlet, but his books were read.”
Hilaire Belloc

Rebecca Makkai
“It's always a matter, isn't it, of waiting for the world to come unraveled? When things hold together, it's always only temporary.”
Rebecca Makkai, The Great Believers

Kahlil Gibran
“Some of you say, “Joy is greater than sorrow,” and others say, “Nay, sorrow is the greater.”
But I say unto you, they are inseparable.
Together they come, and when one sits alone with you at your board, remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.”
Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
