Cheryl liked a quote
“Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you've got a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies-"God damn it, you've got to be kind.”
Kurt Vonnegut

“Wee, sleekit, cowrin, tim'rous beastie,
O, what a panic's in thy breastie! ”
Robert Burns

James Baldwin
“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read.”
James Baldwin

J.M. Barrie
“When the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.”
J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

Mark Twain
“I haven't any right to criticize books, and I don't do it except when I hate them. I often want to criticize Jane Austen, but her books madden me so that I can't conceal my frenzy from the reader; and therefore I have to stop every time I begin. Every time I read Pride and Prejudice I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone.”
Mark Twain

Louise Glück
“Of two sisters one is always the watcher, one the dancer.”
Louise Glück
