Andre Norton

  • The knife flaying the elephant does not have to be large, only sharp!

  • Rumor ... often is fathered and mothered by false reports.

  • There is no weapon in the end as difficult to overcome as the tongue of an enemy.

  • There is no cure for narrowness of mind ...

  • ... we are each shaped from our birth, not only by the blood and inheritance that lies behind us, but also by those we love and by whom we are loved in turn, by the knowledge given to our thirsty minds, to the learning of ourselves.

Andre Norton, U.S. fiction writer, children's writer, librarian

(1912 - 2005)

Real name: Alice Mary Norton.
