Joyce Carol Oates
(1938-____) born on
Jun 16
US "novelist, poet, educator". "She is a prolific novelist who wrote the award-winning "Them," 1969 and Bellefleur, 1980."

"Where we come from in America no longer signifies. It's where we go, and what we do when we get there, that tells us who we are."

She ransacked her mind but there was nothing in it.
"We inhabit ourselves without valuing ourselves, unable to see that here, now, this very moment is sacred; but once it's gone -- its value is incontestable."
"Our enemy is by tradition our savior, in preventing us from superficiality."
Our house is made of glass . . . and our lives are made of glass; and there is nothing we can do to protect ourselves.
