“The world of literature has everything in it, and it refuses to leave 
anything out. I have read like a man on fire my whole life because the 
genius of English teachers touched me with the dazzling beauty of language. 
Because of them I rode with Don Quixote and danced with Anna Karenina at a 
ball in St. Petersburg and lassoed a steer in Lonesome Dove and had 
nightmares about slavery in Beloved and walked the streets of Dublin in 
Ulysses and made up a hundred stories in the Arabian nights and saw my 
mother killed by a baseball in A Prayer for Owen Meany. I've been in ten 
thousand cities and have introduced myself to a hundred thousand strangers 
in my exuberant reading career, all because I listened to my fabulous 
English teachers and soaked up every single thing those magnificent men and 
women had to give. I cherish and praise them and thank them for finding me 
when I was a boy and presenting me with the precious gift of the English 
language. ” 

~Pat Conroyauthor of two memoirs and seven novels, including The Prince of Tides, The Great Santini, and The Lords of Discipline~
