I love the melodies in the Old Testament, how preachers highlight them when they read from the Scripture. But I was influenced forever by the New Testament. I love the Beatitudes, informing us that the meek shall inherit the earth.      fuente
Look Homeward, Angel book cover
Look Homeward, Angel
Thomas Wolfe - 2006-10-10 (publicado por primera vez en 1929)
Calificación de Goodreads
Experience the journey of Eugene Gant, a character believed to be a depiction of the author himself, in the highly autobiographical American Bildungsroman, Look Homeward, Angel. Follow Gant from birth to the age of 19 in the fictional town of Altamont, Catawba, a fictionalization of Asheville, North Carolina. This coming-of-age novel is Thomas Wolfe's first and remains a timeless classic.
Maya Angelou
I've read everything Thomas Wolfe ever wrote; my brother and I memorized whole chapters of You Can't Go Home Again and Look Homeward, Angel. It's hard to select just one of Wolfe's books, but his story of a man who leaves his North Carolina town to seek a better life was probably the most important to me.      fuente
Historia de dos ciudades book cover
Historia de dos ciudades
Charles Dickens - 2003-01-01 (publicado por primera vez en 1859)
Calificación de Goodreads
A Tale of Two Cities is Charles Dickens’s great historical novel, set against the violent upheaval of the French Revolution. The most famous and perhaps the most popular of his works, it compresses an event of immense complexity to the scale of a family history, with a cast of characters that includes a bloodthirsty ogress and an antihero as believably flawed as any in modern fiction. Though the least typical of the author’s novels, A Tale of Two Cities still underscores many of his enduring themes—imprisonment, injustice, social anarchy, resurrection, and the renunciation that fosters renewal.
Maya Angelou
Early on, I was so impressed with Charles Dickens. I grew up in the South, in a little village in Arkansas, and the whites in my town were really mean, and rude. Dickens, I could tell, wouldn't be a man who would curse me out and talk to me rudely.      fuente

When I read Alcott, I knew that these girls she was talking about were all white. But they were nice girls and I understood them. I felt like I was almost there with them in their living room and their kitchen.      fuente
