"Extremists have shown what frightens them most : A girl with a book"

“Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuild my life” J.K. Rowling

“I am neither a man nor a woman but an  author “ Charlotte Bronte

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world”  Anne Frank 

"I opened a book and in I strode. Now nobody can find me. I've left my chair, my house, my road, my town and my world behind me. I'm wearing the cloak, I've slipped on the ring,
I've swallowed the magic potion. I've fought with a dragon, dined with a king and dived in a bottomless ocean. I opened a book and made some friends. I shared their tears and laughter and followed their road with its bumps and bends to the happily ever after.
I finished my book and out I came. The cloak can no longer hide me. My chair and my house are just the same, but I have a book inside me.”
Julia Donaldson
