Quote Analyses
Give insight on the following quotes:
1. I think the world is a serious of broken dams and floods, and
my cartoons are tiny lifeboats Page 4; Junior

2. Okay, so now you know that I'm a cartoonist. And I think I'm
pretty good at it, too. But no matter how good I am, my
cartoons will never take the place of food or money. I wish I
could draw a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, or a fist full of
twenty dollar bills, and perform some magic trick and make it
real. But I can't do that. Nobody can do that, not even the
hungriest magician in the world. Page 7; Junior

3. "My name is Junior," I said. "And my name is Arnold. It's Junior


and Arnold. I'm both." I felt like two different people inside of
one body. No, I felt like a magician slicing myself in half, with
Junior living on the north side of the Spokane River and Arnold
living on the south. Page (8.72-8.74); Conversation with Junior and
Penelope
