Maybe Art’s only purpose is to preserve the Self.
Anne Bennett
This is why I read poetry.
Barbara Kingsolver
“I said probably they were just scared he was going to put ideas in our heads. She smiled. “Imagine that. A teacher, putting ideas in kids’ heads.”
Barbara Kingsolver, Demon Copperhead

Richard Powers
“Life itself is a spectrum disorder, where each of us vibrated at some unique frequency in the continuous rainbow.”
Richard Powers, Bewilderment

Richard Powers
“My son loved the library. He loved putting books on hold online and having them waiting, bundled up with his name, when he came for them. He loved the benevolence that the stacks held out, their map of the known world. He loved the all-you-can-eat buffet of borrowing. He loved the lending histories stamped into the front of each book, the record of strangers who checked them out before him. The library was the best dungeon crawl imaginable: free loot for the finding, combined with the joy of leveling up.”
Richard Powers, Bewilderment

Richard Powers
“There are four good things worth practicing. Being kind toward everything alive. Staying level and steady. Feeling happy for any creature anywhere that is happy. And remembering that any suffering is also yours.”
Richard Powers, Bewilderment

Maggie O'Farrell
“She grows up, too, with the memory of what it meant to be properly loved, for what you are, not what you ought to be.”
Maggie O'Farrell, Hamnet
