Olive Ann Burns
“But to mourn, that's different. To mourn is to be eaten alive with homesickness for the person.”
Olive Ann Burns, Cold Sassy Tree

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
“Finally, from so little sleeping and so much reading, his brain dried up and he went completely out of his mind.”
Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote

Karen   White
“Strong winds buffet the sea oats and tall dune grasses, tossing sand and seabirds where it will, winding my sister's golden hair into sunlit spirals of silk until it becomes the only good memory I have of her -- the only memory I allowed myself to keep.”
Karen White, The Memory of Water

Dorothea Benton Frank
“I have always thought that librarians are a little bit like doctors, travel agents and professors all rolled into one. We all know that a great story can lift spirits, take you anywhere in the world you want to go and in any time period to boot, and the lessons you learn from a good book can buoy your own convictions and even change your life. ”
Dorothea Benton Frank

Karen   White
“Great tragedy gives us opportunities for great kindness.”
Karen White, The Beach Trees
