Edward Lear
b. 5-12-1812; London, England
d. 1-29-1888; Sanremo, Italy (heart disease)

Edward Lear is known today for his poetic and prose literary nonsense, especially limericks. Perhaps his best remembered piece is The Owl and the Pussycat.

Lear was also an accomplished artist, not only illustrating his work but also deplicting birds and his trips around the Mediterranean, Greece, Egypt, India and Ceylon. He was once called to court to give Queen Victoria drawing lessons.

Edward Lear quotes ~
• “The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat.”
• “They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon,
The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.”

Harper Lee
b. 4-28-1926; Alabama

In late 1956 friends of Harper Lee gave her a year's worth of wages for “one year off from your job to write whatever you please. Merry Christmas.”

The result was the Pulitzer Prize winning novel ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ that was voted the “Best Novel of the Century” in a 1999 poll by the Library Journal.

Harper Lee quotes ~
• “Real courage is when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.”
• “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view.”
• “Before I can live with other folks I've got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience.”
• “Many receive advice, only the wise profit from it.”

• “The creative adult is the child who has survived.”
