Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received and am still receiving."
Author: Albert Einstein

He saw the smoke-puffs of shrapnel being blown about by light breezes. He saw birds making love in the wire that a short while before had been ringing with flying metal. He heard the pleasant sounds of larks up there, near the zenith of the trajectories. He smiled a little. There was something profoundly saddening about it. It all seemed so fragile and so absurd."
Author: Humphrey Cobb
10. "You were born where you were born and faced the future that you faced because you were black and for no other reason. The limits of your ambition were, thus, expected to be set forever. You were born into a society which spelled out with brutal clarity, and in as many ways as possible, that you were a worthless human being. You were not expected to aspire to excellence: you were expected to make peace with mediocrity. Wherever you have turned, James, in your short time on this earth, you have been told where you could go and what you could do (and how you could do it) and where you could live and whom you could marry. I know your countrymen do not agree with me about this, and I hear them saying "You exaggerate." They do not know Harlem, and I do. So do you. Take no one's word for anything, including mine- but trust your experience. Know whence you came."
Author: James Baldwin

Author: Joseph Maviglia
14. "Do you love him?" I jumped out of my skin. She was standing right beside me. "Who?" Her eyes widened. "Seth?" I peered over my shoulder at his retreating back. "Um, we've been going together for a long time. A year." "That's not what I asked." I couldn't look at her. Couldn't risk her seeing through me, reading me."Do you hear bells?" she asked. I had to smile at that. "Bells?" "You know, bells. Music, fireworks." She wiggled her eyebrows. I let out a short laugh. It sounded strangled, same way I felt. "Only in my dreams." "Oh, yeah?" She arched an eyebrow. Why did I say that? God. Cece said softly, "Maybe you should listen to your dreams." My stomach suffered a major eruption. She pushed off the locker she'd been balancing against with the sole of her shoe and said, "Think about it." Like I haven't been. "Do you think about it?" I asked at her back. She stopped and turned around. "I don't have to. I know." (Chapter13)"

But it occurred to him that he might as well have the marble he had just thrown away, and therefore he went and made a patient search for it. But he could not find it. Now he went back to his treasure-house and carefully placed himself just as he had been standing when he tossed the marble away; then he took another marble from his pocket and tossed it in the same way, saying:"Brother, go find your brother!"He watched where it stopped, and went there and looked. But it must have fallen short or gone too far; so he tried twice more. The last repetition was successful. The two marbles lay within a foot of each other."

24. "The short story can be hot and sweet or hot and fierce. You get it in one sitting or you don't get it. It's like a shore break. It happens quickly, and is right there in front of you, menacing you. First you're looking at the shore break, and then if you don't back up, it's on you. The novel is the long, low wave that you ride south from the Arctic Circle. It's powerful, but its power accumulates over a very long time as it rolls towards the reef."
Author: Stephanie Vaughn
25. "One of the really bad things you can do to your writing is to dress up the vocabulary, looking for long words because you're maybe a little bit ashamed of your short ones. This is like dressing up a household pet in evening clothes. The pet is embarrassed and the person who committed this act of premeditated cuteness should be even more embarrassed."
Author: Stephen King
