From To Kill A Mockingbird, a classic novel by Harper Lee:

pg. 103: Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat up people's gardens, don't nest in corncribs, they don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."

Miss Maudie clarified a statement that Atticus had uttered to Scout earlier. The "mockingbirds" that Miss Maudie was referring to were the people who did...

This comes from Pearl Cleage's What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day:

pg. 244:"...because by now we were all old enough to know that what looks like crazy on an ordinary day looks a lot like love if you catch it in the moonlight."

Our protagonist, Ava Johnson, AIDS victim and former hairdresser, is determined to live her life as fully and enjoyably as possible. She finally marries the man of her dreams in the end and gets the "happily ever after"...

Today's quote from Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger:

pg. 173: "You know that song, 'If a body catch a body comin' through the rye?"

Holden, in an attempt to articulate his purpose in life to Phoebe, misspeaks the lyrics to Robert Burns's poem "Comin' Thro' the Rye." The line actually reads, "a body meet a body comin' through the rye."
Holden envisions himself being "the catcher in the rye," someone who saves others from...

It's supposed to be winter around my neck of the woods, but one would never be able to tell with no snow on the ground and unseasonably warm temps. It's around 60 degrees right now, sun out, and a slight breeze blowing.

As I take in the nice weather, I reflect on winters past, when snow came all too frequently and school was perpetually out of session. These days, Kentucky doesn't get as much snow as she used to; however, one or two inches of snow on the ground is justification...
