Quote of the Day

Image
But far more intense was the utter, ineffable tenderness he felt, and the solemnity. As though he had been entrusted with something infinitely precious. As though he had taken an oath, and his very life stood surety to it. He would recognize this later as the moment his center of gravity shifted: from being one of one—a pillar alone, apart—to being half of something that would fall if either side were cut away.
~ Laini Taylor,
Strange the Dreamer

Words are wind, but wind can fan fire. My father and my uncle fought words with steel and flame. We shall fight words with words, and put out the fires before they start.
Fire & Blood, George R. R. Martin

His breath warmed the shell of my ear.
“You killed me.”
The dark power in his voice rushed over my skin.
“With iron. Fucking... shot me.”
Animal rage imbued his words.

When she opens her eyes, they are standing on the quarterdeck of a ship in the middle of the ocean. Only the ship is made of books, its sails thousands of overlapping pages, and the sea it floats upon is dark black ink.

Tiny lights hang across the sky, like tightly packed stars bright as sun.

“Tragedy makes for great stories, but I’d much rather your story—the one you live, not the ones you write—be filled with joy. Don’t revel in tragedy, Annie. Rejoice in love. And once you find it, don’t let it go. In the end, it is the one thing you won’t regret.”
Amy Harmon,
What the Wind Knows

It was hard enough to lose Bowie and Prince. When they died, everything went to hot shit, didn’t it? For the record, I blame their deaths for all of this.
~ Chuck Wendig, Wanderers
