When you see this, post a couple of quotations from your own favorite writers. These should be people you read over and over again, not people who had one great idea; go ahead and do it from memory, mistakes and all.

With the exception of some poetry ("I, being born a woman, and oppressed") I don't really memorize quotations so much, but here are a couple as best as I remember them (and I probably would go look them up, except they're still in boxes):

"They were nothing more than people by themselves. Even two of them, any two, would be only people. But together..." - Keri Hulme, The Bone People, ellipsis mine because I can't remember what they were together!

"Sin's when you treat people like things." - Terry Pratchett, Carpe Jugulum (Okay, "And sin, young man, is when you treat people as things. Including yourself. That’s what sin is.")

“Susan was sensible. It was, she knew, a major character flaw. It did not make you popular, or cheerful, and -– this seemed to her to be the most unfair bit –- it didn’t even make you right.“ - Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time

Eh. I know I've got tons of them, but my brain isn't organized enough to let me pull them out when I want them.
