Hello again, This morning I am spending more time at your website and decided to read your page on Alice Walker. Your notes say that Walker was the first African American to win the Pulitzer Prize for literature. This information is incorrect. The first African American to win the Pulitzer Prize for literature was Gwendolyn Brooks. (Born 1917- died 2000). She won the Pulitzer for her second poetry book, Annie Allen, in 1949. I just thought you might like to know. Also, Gwendolyn Brooks' poetry is quite wonderful and you would probably enjoy it also. Have a beautiful day! Peace and blessings, Jeannette

Hi, Two of my favorite African American writers are novelist Paule Marshall, who was/is my mentor and Rita Dove who is a very wonderful poet, now teaching at the University of Virginia. Sometimes if you hear an interview with Toni Morrison, she will refer to Paule Marshall. Paule's first novel was published in 1959. Rita Dove was the poet laureate of the United States several years ago. I hope you will add their names to your website under writers. Peace, joy, and blessings to you. This is a very beautiful website. I have had it bookmarked for a quite a while. Sincerely, Jeannette

You have one of the best websites there is. It is particularly inspiring to me as a lung cancer survivor...although I now have one less lung. I have copied and pasted an excerpt from Huxley's page where I believe that you made a date mistake. It should have been 1967 instead of 1987. Again, thanks for the insights on your site. I feel enlightened after each visit. ~~ Joe

A few years ago, I put up a bulletinboard in my classroom. It was a quotation focusing on how we are all different, but we live together. Some of the lines were similar to: "some are short, some are tall, some are dull, some are sharp, we are all different colors, but we all live in the same box". It compares our lives to a box of crayons. Over time I have lost it. Is there any way you can help me find it? Thank you very much. ~ Rhonda

Do you know of a way I can contact Rev. Paul Osumi? I am a Penguin author hoping to use one of his quotes in a book I am writing. Kind regards, Lana

Hi there: I am a huge fan of Katharine Hepburn and I have recently started a fan site. I have added her Bio, Profile, Quotes & Filmography in the site. Here's the link: Katharine Hepburn

Thanks, Jason

Aloha! Thanks again for all the great people you send out! I am sure you'll have many of comments that you forgot to mention Hugh Laurie's roles in the Blackadder series on BBC. He always played a royal or high-class twit to Rowan Atkinson's schemming Blackadder. That made him practically un-recognizable as House! ~ Sunnie

Fifty years ago or so it seems, I heard the quote, at this point loosley paraphrased. "A lie dishonors the speaker as well as the hearer." Whose quote is it?? Please repond as I have held this very dear to my heart for many years--maybe not 50 but a long while...

Sylvia Plath did not say the quote you have attributed to her. It is from a famous poem entitled Desiderata. Her mother, Aurelia, quoted the poem in a letter to Plath while the poet was studying at Cambridge University in 1956, I believe, and Plath quotes the letter in her published Journals. ~ Emily

My mother has a friend-to-friend daily prayer and quote for the day published by Lighten Up Enterprises. It is so worn out from years of reading it each day that i am trying to find another one for her but not finding one...can you help me? ~ Caroline

I was given a small desk type booklet with inspirational thoughts and prayers around 1992. I've been reading it daily ever since! It's called "Hearts Delight", and I would love to replace mine and or give as a gift. Where can I find one? ~ Margaret
