Tove Jansson - Finnish children's author and illustrator (and creator of the Moomins)

"I sat down and wrote that there is a fine balance between the absolute calm of arrival and the excitement of departure, then crossed out 'fine' and added 'both are indispensable' at the end, and began to wonder what I had really meant." Quote from Tove Jansson's story 'Taking Leave,' found in "A Winter Book," published by Sort of Books (www.sortof.co.uk/books/a-winter-book/)

Everyone can choose for himself, but he must choose while there is still time and never change his mind.” ― Tove Jansson, Moominvalley in November
