Pearl S. Buck
“The mistakes of history bring relentless reprisals.”
Pearl S. Buck, Living Reed: A Novel of Korea

“The classroom was a jail of other people’s interests. The library was open, unending, free.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates

Helen Keller
“In college, there is no time to commune with one's thoughts. One goes to college to learn, it seems, not to think. When one enters the portals of learning, one leaves the dearest pleasures–solitude, books and imagination–outside with the whispering pines. I suppose I ought to find some comfort in the thought that I am laying up treasures for future enjoyment, but I am improvident enough to prefer present joy to hoarding riches against a rainy day.”
Helen Keller

William Deresiewicz
“We are not teaching to the test; we are living to it.”
William Deresiewicz, Excellent Sheep: The Miseducation of the American Elite and the Way to a Meaningful Life

Primo Levi
“Real problems sooner or later are resolved; on the contrary, pseudoproblems are not.”
Primo Levi, Moments of Reprieve

Rowena's Quill (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
15 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:24PM
Description: This full-length novel was written before the release of "Deathly Hallows" and contains my predictions of the Ravenclaw horcrux. "Deathly Hallows" proved me wrong, but I put a year's effort into writing this, so enjoy! <strong>Disclaimer</strong>:Except for a few exceptions, the characters and magic in this story are borrowed from J.K. Rowling and I am in no way making money from this. If I am at all able to copy her creations, it is only because she has breathed such life into them herself.
Twisted Trees (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Dec 12, 2010 01:39PM
Description: Marianne looks to nature for echoes of her romantic sensibilities, not suspecting that Brandon does the same.
