Literary Birthday - 27 May - Marijane Meaker

Happy Birthday, Marijane Meaker, born 27 May 1927

Four Quotes

  1. Obstacles are challenges for winners and excuses for losers.
  2. Strangers take a long time to become acquainted, particularly when they are from the same family.
  3. Anyone with any trouble at all eventually found his way to a city library, and the really troubled ones became regulars.
  4. It was like picking up a book and reading the things the main character did and said and his description and thinking vaguely, at first, Why, I’m that way a little. Then more, until the realisation comes like a giant boulder down the hill and crashes into you, pulverising you with the knowledge that this is you, this character.
