The words that spoke to me this week.

“But luxury has never appealed to me, I like simple things, books, being alone, or with somebody who understands.”—Daphne du Maurier

“Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.”—Maurice Sendak 

“Right now I’ve got just two rules to live by. Rule one: don’t taunt elephants. Rule two: don’t stand next to anybody who taunts elephants.”— Sergeant Schlock by Howard Tayler in The Tub of Happiness
