George Orwell, 1984

John Rogers
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged.

Mark Twain
“Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.”
Mark Twain

Audre Lorde
“Hatred is the fury of those who do not share our goals, and its object is death and destruction. Anger is a grief of distortions between peers, and its object is change.”
Audre Lorde, Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches
