Cynthia Ozick
“No, no, sometimes a person feels to be alone."
"If you're alone too much," Persky said, "you think too much."
"Without a life," Rosa answered, "a person lives where they can. If all they got is thoughts, that's where they live."
"You ain't got a life?"
"Thieves took it.”
Cynthia Ozick, The Shawl

Frances Ellen Watkins Harper
“All that may be true, but I cannot recognize that the negro man is the only one who has pressing claims at this hour. To-day our government needs woman's conscience as well as man's judgment. And while I would not throw a straw in the way of the colored man, even though I know that he would vote against me as soon as he gets his vote, yet I do think that woman should have some power to defend herself from oppression, and equal laws as if she were a man.”
Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, Minnie's Sacrifice

Cynthia Ozick
“It seemed to Rosa Lublin that the whole peninsula of Florida was weighted down with regret. Everyone had left behind a real life. Here they had nothing. They were all scarecrows, blown about under the murdering sunball with empty ribcages.”
Cynthia Ozick, The Shawl

Maxine Kumin
“Cherish your wilderness.”
Maxine Kumin

Johnny Cash
“All your life, you will be faced with a choice. You can choose love or hate…I choose love.”
Johnny Cash
