Jean Merrill

  • I have always believed that we cannot have peace in the world until all of us understand how wars start.

  • The truck drivers had gotten together and figured out that in crowded traffic conditions, the only way to get where you wanted to go was to be so big that you didn't have to get out of the way for anybody. This is known as the Large Object Theory of History.

Jean Merrill, U.S. children's writer, editor

(1923 - 2012)
