Betty  Smith
“Someday you'll remember what I said and you'll thank me for it."

Francie wished adults would stop telling her that. Already the load of thanks in the future was weighing her down. She figured she'd have to spend the best years of her womanhood hunting up people to tell them that they were right and to thank them.”
Betty Smith, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

Betty  Smith
“No matter where its seed fell, it made a tree which struggled to reach the sky. It grew in boarded-up lots and out of neglected rubbish heaps, and it was the only tree that grew out of cement. It grew lushly, but only in the tenements districts.... That was the kind of tree it was. It liked poor people.”
Betty Smith, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

Robin Sloan
“Her home is the burrow of a bibliophile hobbit -– low-ceilinged, close-walled, and brimming over with books.”
Robin Sloan, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

Mark Twain
“Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.”
Mark Twain

Natalie Babbitt
“Don't be afraid of death; be afraid of an unlived life. You don't have to live forever, you just have to live.”
Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting
