Favorite Alcott Quotes

1. "Golf isn't just about hitting a lot of drivers. I grew up playing on my front lawn, chipping and putting into soup cans, out of the ivy and over rose bushes and hedges - the little Alcott Golf and Country Club. I just loved having a wedge in my hands."
Author: Amy Alcott
2. "But, Polly, a principle that can't bear being laughed at, frowned on, and cold-shouldered isn't worthy of the name." - Miss Mills, An Old-Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott"
Author: Louisa May Alcott
3. "As a child, I read because books–violent and not, blasphemous and not, terrifying and not–were the most loving and trustworthy things in my life. I read widely, and loved plenty of the classics so, yes, I recognized the domestic terrors faced by Louisa May Alcott's March sisters. But I became the kid chased by werewolves, vampires, and evil clowns in Stephen King's books. I read books about monsters and monstrous things, often written with monstrous language, because they taught me how to battle the real monsters in my life.And now I write books for teenagers because I vividly remember what it felt like to be a teen facing everyday and epic dangers. I don't write to protect them. It's far too late for that. I write to give them weapons–in the form of words and ideas-that will help them fight their monsters. I write in blood because I remember what it felt like to bleed."
Author: Sherman Alexie
4. "I would enjoy having dinner with the poet/playwright Derek Walcott."
Author: Walter Dean Myers
