Life is so constructed that an event does not, cannot, will not, match the expectation.

Charlotte Bronte, Villette

Freeing yourself was one thing, claiming ownership of that freed self was another.

Toni Morrison, Beloved

Maybe ever’body in the whole damn world is scared of each other.

John Steinbeck, Of Mice and Men

Beware; for I am fearless, and therefore powerful.

Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

Don’t waste your love on somebody, who doesn’t value it.

William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.

George Orwell, 1984

What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart, oh, no, it’s curved like a road through mountains.

Tennessee Williams, A Streetcar Named Desire

It isn’t what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.

Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility

Perhaps it is better to be a machine that does its duty than a flesh-and-blood-person who will not, for a dead truth is better than a live falsehood.

L. Frank Baum,  The Road to Oz
