M. E. Kerr

  • Obstacles are challenges for winners, and excuses for losers.

  • You can become anything you want to be ... It's a matter of authority. Whatever a man's confidence, that's his capacity.

  • Once you know something is wrong, you're responsible, whether you see it, or hear about it, and most particularly when you're a part of it.

  • The only difference between a pigeon and a farmer today is a pigeon can still make a deposit on a John Deere tractor.

  • All coming-out stories are a continuing process. Strangers take a long time to become acquainted, particularly when they are from the same family.

    • M. E. Kerr,
    • "We Might As Well All Be Strangers," in Marion Dane Bauer, ed., Am I Blue? ()
  • Cut! Cut! Cut! Your reader has a life.
