D.B.C. Pierre
“The problem with learning the truth about things is that you lose the confidence that comes from being dumb.”
D.B.C. Pierre, Vernon God Little

Kurt Vonnegut
“And on the subject of burning books: I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength or their powerful political connections or their great wealth, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and have refused to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles.

So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.”
Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

Lois Lowry
“It is very risky. But each time a child opens a book, he pushes open the gate that separates him from Elsewhere.”
Lois Lowry

John Connolly
“I think the act of reading imbues the reader with a sensitivity toward the outside world that people who don't read can sometimes lack. I know it seems like a contradiction in terms; after all reading is such a solitary, internalizing act that it appears to represent a disengagement from day-to-day life. But reading, and particularly the reading of fiction, encourages us to view the world in new and challenging ways...It allows us to inhabit the consciousness of another which is a precursor to empathy, and empathy is, for me, one of the marks of a decent human being.”
John Connolly, The Book of Lost Things

Tom Robbins
“We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.”
Tom Robbins
