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

Michael   Lewis
“There was a rift in American life that was now coursing through American government. It wasn’t between Democrats and Republicans. It was between the people who were in it for the mission, and the people who were in it for the money.”
Michael Lewis, The Fifth Risk

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

Pamela Paul
“In college, books assigned for class were read as competitive sport - the more critically, the better.”
Pamela Paul, My Life with Bob: Flawed Heroine Keeps Book of Books, Plot Ensues

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.
