    Speaking and Listening
    “…to judge a work as ethically praiseworthy or contemptible without determining what its implied author’s intent was is like judging a dish of food not by tasting it but by how the waiter’s description fits your preconceptions.”
    Wayne C. Booth, Literary Critic

    Reading
    “Do not insult me with the beheadings, finger-choppings or the lung-deflations you plan for my works. . . . I will not go gently onto a shelf, degutted, to become a non-book. . . . Referees, hit the showers. It’s my game. . . . And no one can help me. Not even you.”
    Ray Bradbury, Author

    Language
    “Now I know you can be overwhelmed and you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?”
    Bianca, “Ten Things I Hate About You”

    Writing
    “By telling stories, you can objectify your own experience. You separate it from yourself. You pin down certain truths. You make up others.”
    Tim O’Brien, The Things They Carried
