Tom Robbins
“Sometimes, though, I feel that pushing books is a whole lot like pushing medicine. Think of books as pills. I have pills that cure ignorance and pills that cure boredom. I have pills to elevate moods and pills to open people's eyes to the awful truth: uppers and downers as they were. I sell pills to help people find themselves and pills to help them lose themselves when they require escape from the pressures and anxieties of life in a complex society...”
Tom Robbins

Neil Gaiman
“Stories you read when you're the right age never quite leave you. You may forget who wrote them or what the story was called. Sometimes you'll forget precisely what happened, but if a story touches you it will stay with you, haunting the places in your mind that you rarely ever visit.”
Neil Gaiman, M Is for Magic

Haruki Murakami
“Even castles in the sky can do with a fresh coat of paint.”
Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun

Chuck Palahniuk
“The first step - especially for young people with energy and drive and talent, but not money - the first step to controlling your world is to control your culture. To model and demonstrate the kind of world you demand to live in. To write the books. Make the music. Shoot the films. Paint the art.”
Chuck Palahniuk

C.G. Jung
“Where wisdom reigns, there is no conflict between thinking and feeling.”
Carl Gustav Jung
