"The problem is we think we exist. We think our words are permanent and solid and stamp us forever. That's not true. We write in the moment. Sometimes when I read poems at a reading to strangers, I realize they think those poems are me. They are not me, even if I speak in the "I" person. They were my thoughts and my hand and the space and the emotions at the time of writing. Watch yourself. Every minute we change. It is a great opportunity. At any point, we can step out of our frozen selves and our ideas and begin fresh. That is how writing is. Instead of freezing us, it frees us." - Natalie Goldberg, from Writing Down the Bones

"'There must be something in books. Things we can't imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house; there must be something there. You don't stay for nothing.'" - Ray Bradbury, from Fahrenheit 451

"At times our need for a sympathetic gesture is so great that we care not what exactly it signifies or how much we may have to pay for it afterwards." - E.M. Forster, from A Room with a View
