    “The shell, it looks alive…” Zara stands awestruck, admiring the seamless shape of the gravity-defying vessel. “Classic flying saucer look, no seams, as if it was moulded into shape,” she touches the shell, it recoils away from her hand, “it feels alive.”
    A metallic voice sounds, reverberating around the vessel. A feminine voice.
    “Assertion. I am alive and right here in front of you—who pray tell are you?”
    ― J.L. Haynes, Zara Hanson & The Mystery of the Painted Symbol

    "Touch the earth, love the earth, honour the earth, her plains, her valleys, her hills, and her seas; rest your spirit in her solitary places. For the gifts of life are the earth’s and they are given to all, and they are the songs of birds at daybreak, Orion and the Bear, and dawn seen over the ocean from the beach.”
    ― Henry Beston, The Outermost House: A Year of Life On The Great Beach of Cape Cod

    ''I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior.'' - Hippolyte Taine

    ― Stephanie Rosenbloom, Alone Time: Four Seasons, Four Cities, and the Pleasures of Solitude
