More of Maria's books…
Aldous Huxley
“One of the principal functions of a friend is to suffer (in a milder and symbolic form) the punishments that we should like, but are unable, to inflict upon our enemies.”
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

Deepak Chopra
“...religion is a tool to bind people together, to strengthen their unity, but like every tool, it can be mismanaged, even used in opposition to the way it should.”
Deepak Chopra

Anthony Burgess
“There is, in fact, not much point in writing a novel unless you can show the possibility of moral transformation, or an increase in wisdom, operating in your chief character or characters. Even trashy bestsellers show people changing. When a fictional work fails to show change, when it merely indicates that human character is set, stony, unregenerable, then you are out of field of the novel and into that of the fable or the allegory.

- from the introduction of the 1986 Norton edition”
Anthony Burgess, A Clockwork Orange

Daniel Keyes
“How can I make him understand that he did not create me?
He makes the same mistake as the others when they look at a feeble-minded person and laugh because they don't understand there are human feelings involved.”
Daniel Keyes, Flowers for Algernon

Joann Sfar
“...by the time you've finished naming a thing, it has already changed and the name you gave it no longer defines it exactly...”
Joann Sfar
