Amazing talent. I hope my son reads this for high school, it should be on every school curriculum. Clarke’s words and experiences will stay with me.

Stephen Fry
“It's not all bad. Heightened self-consciousness, apartness, an inability to join in, physical shame and self-loathing—they are not all bad. Those devils have been my angels. Without them I would never have disappeared into language, literature, the mind, laughter and all the mad intensities that made and unmade me.”
Stephen Fry, Moab Is My Washpot

John Green
“What a slut time is. She screws everybody.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Oscar Wilde
“I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.”
Oscar Wilde, The Happy Prince and Other Stories

Stephen Fry
“Books are no more threatened by Kindle than stairs by elevators.”
Stephen Fry

Virginia Woolf
“Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.”
Virginia Woolf, A Room of One's Own
