Aut Viam Inveniam Aut Faciam

"Write with your eyes like painters, with your ears like musicians, with your feet like dancers. You are the truthsayer with quill and torch. Write with your tongues of fire. Don't let the pen banish you from yourself. Don't let the ink coagulate in your pens. Don't let the censor snuff out the spark, nor the gags muffle your voice. Put your shit on the paper." (Gloria Anzaldua)

"I had dreamed of someone whose intellectual life would be, somehow, in harmony with mine, that I might realize all is not madness, that others, too, experience the emotions and thoughts I guiltily wrote in the pure white pages of my life record."

"True companionship is not often found in people but in books and dreams." (Anais Nin)

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." (Ghandi)

"The question is not, can [animals] reason? Nor can they talk? But, can they suffer? Why should the law refuse its protection to any sensitive being? The time will come when humanity will extend its mantle over everything which breathes..." (Bentham)
