The future which we hold in trust for our own children will be shaped by our fairness to other people's children.
Marian Wright Edelman
Never be ashamed! There's some who'll hold it against you, but they're not worth bothering with.
J. K. Rowling
A short story is something that you can hold in your mind. You can really analyze how the entire thing works, like a machine.

Temper is a weapon that we hold by the blade.
James M. Barrie
I believe in something. But I don't believe that anything can hold a grudge for long enough to condemn its creation to eternal punishment. Nobody can hold a grudge that long, even God.

I'm a fantasy writer, called a fantasy writer. But there's very little, apart from one or two basic concepts in 'I Shall Wear Midnight,' which are in fact fantasy.

I loved being outside. We'd hold lightning bugs in our fingers and pretend they were diamond rings.
