John Steinbeck
“An unbelieved truth can hurt a man much more than a lie. It takes great courage to back truth unacceptable to our times. There's a punishment for it, and it's usually crucifixion.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

John Steinbeck
“He never fell,
never slipped back,
never flew.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

Barbara Kingsolver
“God doesn’t need to punish us. He just grants us a long enough life to punish ourselves.”
Barbara Kingsolver, The Poisonwood Bible

Sylvia Plath
“When they asked me what I wanted to be I said I didn’t know.
"Oh, sure you know," the photographer said.
"She wants," said Jay Cee wittily, "to be everything.”
Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

Barbara Kingsolver
“Listen. To live is to be marked. To live is to change, to acquire the words of a story, and that is the only celebration we mortals really know. In perfect stillness, frankly, I've only found sorrow.”
Barbara Kingsolver, The Poisonwood Bible
