“Sorry," [Hamlet] said, rubbing his temples. "I don't know what came over me. All of a sudden I had this overwhelming desire to talk for a very long time without actually doing anything.”
Jasper Fforde, Something Rotten

Dr. Seuss
“Be grateful you’re not in the forest in France
Where the average young person just hasn’t a chance
To escape from the perilous pants eating plants
But your pants are safe, you’re a fortunate guy
You ought to be shouting how lucky am I”
Dr. Seuss, Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?

Oscar Wilde
“To lose one parent may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness.”
Oscar Wilde

Eva Ibbotson

"Isn't that where the massacre was?" asked Ellen.
"Yes. I'm going to go there when I'm grown up. To Wounded Knee."
"That seems sensible," said Ellen.”
Eva Ibbotson, A Song for Summer
