“Happiness is about a moment.  The moment.  Its not a switch that gets thrown and nothing bad ever happens to you again.”  – Tripp Millican

“A writer out of loneliness is trying to communicate like a distant star sending signals. He isn’t telling, or teaching, or ordering. Rather, he seeks to establish a relationship with meaning, of feeling, of observing. We are lonesome animals. We spend all our live trying to be less lonesome. And one of our ancient methods is to tell a story, begging the listener to say, and to feel, “Yes, that’s the way it is, or at least that’s the way I feel it. You’re not as alone as you thought.” To finish is sadness to a writer, a little death. He puts the last word down and it is done. But it isn’t really done. The story goes on and leaves the writer behind, for no story is ever done.”  – John Steinbeck

“A book, too, can be a star, a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe.”  – Madeleine L’Engle
