Cynthia Voigt

  • You have to reach out to people. To your family too. You can't just let them sit there, you should put your hand out. If they slap it back, well you reach out again if you care enough.

  • Maybe life was like a sea, and all the people were like boats ... Everybody who was born was cast into the sea. Winds would blow them in all directions. Tides would rise and turn, in their own rhythm. And the boats — they just went along as best they could, trying to find a harbor.

  • Rebellion is necessary for the development of character.

  • You could say that all of life is a series of last chances.

  • The worst things weren't outside of you.

Cynthia Voigt, U.S. writer, Newbery winner

(1942)
