Quotation of the Week

“This book is for you not because I think one should never have to fight,
but because I think the true heroes are the ones who solve their problems
—and the problems of the world—
without ever having to resort to force.
The tongue is mightier than the sword.
As is the pen.”

—Jane Yolen, in Mightier Than the Sword
