Sharon Creech

  • I prayed to trees. This was easier than praying directly to God. There was nearly always a tree nearby.

  • Life is a bowl of spaghetti ... every now and then you get a meatball.

  • It wasn't that I was stupid ... It was just that there didn't seem to be a lot to say that someone wasn't already saying.

  • You know, maybe that's all anybody wants, is to be useful. And have somebody else notice it.

Sharon Creech, U.S. children's writer, Newbery winner

(1945)
