From Mark Z. Danielewski’s House of Leaves, the quote is originally cited in its French form from Baudelaire’s Les Fleurs du Mal as “Je ne vois qu’infini par toutes les fenetres.” The editors translate in the footnotes, “Through all windows, I see only infinity.”
From “Love’s Labour’s Lost” by Shakespeare, a quote from the character of Don Armado: “Devise, wit; write, pen; for I am for whole volumes in folio.” Because I’m both a reader and a writer.

Their eyes were watching God by Zora Neales Hurston. I read it every summer, and sometimes again in the winter. :)
One hour to madness and joy! O furious! O confine me not!
(What is this that frees me so in storms?
What do my shouts amid lightnings and raging winds mean?)
-Walt Whitman, Children of Adam—One Hour to Madness and Joy
Irish Buddha Tattoo (Seaford, DE)
My first tattoo. I wanted it for 4 years before I did it. It was never a matter of if but when. I grew up with Harry; only natural it be a part of me.
I was named after the children’s book Madeline and have been playing hockey my whole life. It was only fitting to get this tattoo on my foot.
“Soon he’ll come in again and kiss me, but differently. He’ll be different and so I’ll be different. It’ll be different. I thought, ‘It’ll be different, different. It must be different.”
