“Science fiction deals with improbable possibilities, fantasy with plausible impossibilities.”
Miriam Allen de Ford

Arnold Lobel
“Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them.”
Arnold Lobel

“The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present.”
Alice Morse Earle

“Things remained unsaid will remain unheard”

Wilbur Smith
“The best cure for racism is to have somebody shoot at you. Man, it does not matter then what color the arse is that comes to save yours-black or white, you're ready to give it a big fat kiss.”
Wilbur Smith, Golden Fox
