Bram Stoker quotes ~
• “I have learned not to think little of any one's belief, no matter how strange it may be. I have tried to keep an open mind, and it is not the ordinary things of life that could close it, but the strange things, the extraordinary things, the things that make one doubt if they be mad or sane.”

• “I still believe that if your aim is to change the world, journalism is a more immediate short-term weapon.”
• “It is better of course to know useless things than to know nothing.”

• “...The world is full of happy people but no one ever hears of them. You have to fight and make a scandal to get in the papers. No one knows about all the happy people...” ~ Girl of the Limberlost
