Natalie Goldberg
“Go ahead; take Kant's PROLEGOMENA TO ANY FUTURE METAPHYSIC and get it to show what he is telling. We would all be a lot happier.”
Natalie Goldberg, Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within

Jonathan Sacks
“Science takes things apart to see how they work. Religion puts things together to see what they mean.”
Jonathan Sacks

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

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

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