Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.

And Special Ed wasn't as scary as I thought the teachers would be. In fact nothing was scarier than me knowing something was wrong inside me, something I couldn't see silently eating away at me like termites, and it was going to ruin me even when I was being good. I was scary to myself.

           --Jack Gantos, Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key   (Farrer, Straus and Giroux, 1998)
