E.L. Konigsburg
“I think you should learn, of course, and some days you must learn a great deal. But you should also have days when you allow what is already in you to swell up inside of you until it touches everything. And you can feel it inside of you. If you never take time out to let that happen, then you accumulate facts, and they begin to rattle around inside of you. You can make noise with them, but never really feel anything with them. It's hollow.”
E.L. Konigsburg, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler

“Claudia knew that she could never pull off the old-fashioned kind of running away. That is, running away in the heat of anger with a knapsack on her pack. She didn't like discomfort; even picnics were untidy and inconvenient: all those insects and the sun melting the icing on the cupcakes. Therefore, she decided that her leaving home would not be just running from somewhere but would be running to somewhere.”
E.L. Konigsburg, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler

“Now, there is a wonderful thing in this world called "foresight". It is a gift treasured above all others because it allows one to know what the future holds. Most people with foresight end up wielding immense power in life, often becoming great rulers or librarians.”
Jonathan Auxier, Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes

“In my experience heroes are no more good than you or I. And though occasionally noble, they are just as often cunning, resourceful, and a little brash.”
Jonathan Auxier, Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes

“It was a dark and stormy night.”
Madeleine L'Engle, A Wrinkle in Time
