“True terror isn’t being scared; it’s not having a choice on the matter.”
John Green, Turtles All the Way Down

Helen Simonson
“You are a wise man, Major, and I will consider your advice with great care—and humility." He finished his tea and rose from the table to go to his room. "But I must ask you, do you really understand what it means to be in love with an unsuitable woman?"

"My dear boy," said the Major. "Is there really any other kind?”
Helen Simonson, Major Pettigrew's Last Stand

Judy Blume
“Censors never go after books unless kids already like them. I don’t even think they know to go after books until they know that children are interested in reading this book, therefore there must be something in it that’s wrong.”
Judy Blume

“Librarians save lives: by handing the right book, at the right time, to a kid in need”
Judy Blume

“It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.'

[I saw hate in a graveyard -- Stephen Fry, The Guardian, 5 June 2005]”
Stephen Fry
