Dr. Seuss
“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.”
Dr. Seuss

Susan Cain
“We know from myths and fairy tales that there are many different kinds of powers in this world. One child is given a light saber, another a wizard's education. The trick is not to amass all the different kinds of power, but to use well the kind you've been granted.”
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
“I do not understand how anyone can live without some small place of enchantment to turn to.”
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

Charles de Lint
“People want to know those details. They think it gives them greater insight into a piece of art, but when they approach a painting in such a manner, they are belittling both the artist’s work and their own ability to experience it. Each painting I do says everything I want to say on its subject and in terms of that painting, and not all the trivia in the world concerning my private life will give the viewer more insight into it than what hangs there before their eyes. Frankly, as far as I’m concerned, even titling a work is an unnecessary concession.”
Charles de Lint, Memory and Dream
