  3. “I was one of those kids who had books on them. Before weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, funerals and anything else where you’re actually meant to not be reading, my family would frisk me and take the book away.

I was the kid with the book.” ~ Neil Gaiman

Hitler had been in power only six months, and his boycott was already in full effect.

I can make my own decisions.” ~ Sara Nelson
