The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
“It’s the leftover humans. The survivors. They’re the ones I can’t stand to look at, although on many occasions I still fail. I deliberately seek out the colors to keep my mind off them, but now and then, I witness the ones who are left behind, crumbling among the jigsaw puzzle of realization, despair, and surprises. They have punctured hearts. They have beaten lungs. Which in turn brings me to the subject I am telling you about tonight, or today, or whatever the hour and color. It’s the story of one of those perpetual survivors –an expert at being left behind.”
Markus Zusak

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
“They say that war is death's best friend, but I must offer you a different point of view on that one. To me, war is like the new boss who expects the impossible. He stands over your shoulder repeating one thin, incessantly: 'Get it done, get it done.' So you work harder. You get the job done. The boss, however, does not thank you. He asks for more.”
Markus Zusak

Frank Portman
“There's always a bit of suspense about the particular way in which a given school year will get off to a bad start.”
Frank Portman, King Dork

Douglas Adams
“A doctor, a logician and a marine biologist had also just arrived, flown in at phenomenal expense from Maximegalon to try to reason with the lead singer who had locked himself in the bathroom with a bottle of pills and was refusing to come out till it could be proved conclusively to him that he wasn't a fish. The bass player was busy machine-gunning his bedroom and the drummer was nowhere on board.

Frantic inquiries led to the discovery that he was standing on a beach on Santraginus V over a hundred light years away where, he claimed, he had been happy for over half an hour now and had found a small stone that would be his friend.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Carl Sagan
“Those at too great a distance may, I am well are, mistake ignorance for perspective.”
Carl Sagan, Dragons of Eden: Speculations on the Evolution of Human Intelligence

Richard Dawkins
“Science replaces private prejudice with public, verifiable evidence.”
Richard Dawkins
