Quote of the Day
An association of men who will not quarrel with one another is a thing which has never yet existed, from the greatest confederacy of nations down to a town meeting or a vestry.
When a true genius appears, you can know him by this sign: that all the dunces are in a confederacy against him.
Every diminution of the public burdens arising from taxation gives to individual enterprise increased power and furnishes to all the members of our happy confederacy new motives for patriotic affection and support.
If the Confederacy fails, there should be written on its tombstone: Died of a Theory.
The dangers of a concentration of all power in the general government of a confederacy so vast as ours are too obvious to be disregarded.
Our country presents on every side the evidences of that continued favor under whose auspices it, has gradually risen from a few feeble and dependent colonies to a prosperous and powerful confederacy.
Martin Van Buren

I like characters like Ignatius Reilly in 'A Confederacy of Dunces' and Ricky Gervais's character in 'The Office.' They think one thing about themselves, but the truth is as far from that as it can be. So I began to think about how to put that kind of character in a book for kids.
