The 20 Greatest Maurice Sendak Quotes

Maurice Sendak has passed away... Gonna get this tattooed on my left hip but without the blue background

"You know who my gods are, who I believe in fervently? Herman Melville, Emily Dickinson --she's probably the top -- Mozart, Shakespeare, Keats. These are wonderful gods who have gotten me through the narrow straits of life." .. Thank you for my childhood. For being part of what spurred my love of reading. To the author who gave words to our dreams & encouraged us to be wild things - Rest easy.

Just a little reminder to practice some self-care. You can't be your best if you're wearing yourself down.

The 20 Greatest Maurice Sendak Quotes

RIP Maurice Sendak “Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.”
