Literary Birthday - 15 May - Lauren Myracle

Happy Birthday, Lauren Myracle, born 15 May 1969


  1. I live in my own little world. But it's ok, they know me here.
  2. Sometimes when we forget to do things for others, it's because we're too wrapped up in our own problems.
  3. I know I seem really friendly, but I'm a closet introvert.
  4. I loved everyone who said yes to the world and tried to make it better instead of worse, because so much in the world was ugly- and just about all the ugly parts were due to humans.
  5. It's neither my job nor within my capabilities to save people. But a book sure can try.
  6. Kids are smart. Knowledge is power. Let them figure things out. Don't turn into that grown-up who they won't come to.
  7. We all mess up. It's what we learn from our mistakes that matters.
  8. Ideas matter. The world matters. Our lives matter, and the choices we make as we navigate our lives perhaps matter most of all.
  9. Dogs like everyone. Cats choose who to like.
  10. Knowledge was more powerful than fear. Love was stronger than hate.
