"Real self-esteem has to be earned. I also believe in virtuous circles, like, nothing is fun until you are good at it. It is great if you can instill in children the ability to not give up, to have a work ethic."

Daniele Vare Quotes

"The verb to darn is explained in my pocket dictionary as follows: To mend by imitating the texture of the stuff, with thread and needle. But this definition does not correspond to the work accomplished by good Chinese housewives. When they mend a sock, they do not try to imitate the texture of the stuff. Their art makes no attempt at concealment: it even takes a certain pride in revealing itself."

The Prince of Hed, who was recovering slowly from the effects of loading two carts of beer for trading the evening before, ran a reddened eye over the tables and shouted for his sister." - Author: Patricia A.

Quotes About Speculative Fiction

"[T]he new weird represents a productive experiment in fantasy fiction. The New Wave of the 1960s and 1970s arguably embodied science fictions claim to literary seriousness.
