That would make a good bumper sticker, actually. My other car is a big penis. My creative talents are wasted in law.

"Of all the horrible things I've done to you," she was saying, "I think this is the worst. I came here because I wanted to disappear. Because I was ashamed of myself and I thought if I told you how I felt--if I just let you know--you would help erase me, too."

He thought of Violet fading as she had, and slowly, ever so slowly, he leaned his head against hers. "No, you didn't think that."

She huffed. "Yes, I did."

"No." Sebastian leaned down to her, until his lips were near her ear. "You came to me because I know you better than anyone else. Because you needed someone to tell you that you matter."

She stopped breathing.

"Because even though you've been invisible to the entire world," he said, "I have always seen you."

“Five a.m. was a largely theoretical concept to me.
I knew it existed, but I rarely observed it.”
~ Artemis by Andy Weir

Quote of the Day

Image
I stay in this one moment, where we are together and there is no blood or fighting or death. There is only us and a fire and a wolf and our feelings.

But those moments are made of dream, and one must always wake.

~ Karpov Kinrade, Midnight Star (Vampire Girl #2)

We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.
~ Thornton Wilder, The Woman of Andros

“Just keep in mind,” Leon said, merging onto the highway, “I’m your cousin and you love me. If you attack me while I’m driving, we will both die and then he wins. Don’t let him win, Catalina.”

~ Ilona Andrews, Diamond Fire (Hidden Legacy #3.5)

Quote of the Day

Image
The male I fell in love with was you. It was you, who knew pain as I did, and who walked with me through it, back to the light. Maeve didn’t understand that. That even if she could create that perfect world, it wouldn’t be you with me. And I’d never trade that, trade this. Not for anything.
~ Sarah J. Maas, Kingdom of Ash

I know a funny thing about eyes. Where you let them look is where they take you. Look back and you stay stuck in a lost, forever unattainable past. Look forward and you love.

She just...couldn't seem to lock into relationships. There was never a definitive click to let her know she'd finally made something solid and lasting. It always felt more like grasping something that was too hot and seeing how long she could stand to hold on.

Half Past

Monsters are real. They’re real, and they’re capable of doing the unspeakable. And they don’t hide under beds or in closets—they hide in plain sight. You just don’t always notice them.

The Thinnest Air by Minka Kent

“So long as my body lives, and yours—we are one flesh,” he whispered. [snip]

“And when my body shall cease, my soul will still be yours. Claire—I swear by my hope of heaven, I will not be parted from you.”

The wind stirred the leaves of the chestnut trees nearby, and the scents of late summer rose up rich around us; pine and grass and strawberries, sun-warmed stone and cool water, and the sharp, musky smell of his body next to mine.

“Nothing is lost, Sassenach; only changed.”

“That’s the first law of thermodynamics,” I said, wiping my nose.

“No,” he said. “That’s faith.”

~ Diana Gabaldon, Drums of Autumn (Outlander #4)

Quote of the Day

Image
She would be his wife, his queen. She was already his equal, his match, his mirror in so many ways. And with their union, the world would know it.

But he could see the bars of the cage that would creep closer, tighter, every day. And either break her wholly, or tun her into something neither of them wish her to ever be.
Kingdom of Ash, Sarah J. Maas

Quote of the Day

Image
Everyone is guilty of something, and everyone still harbors a memory of childhood innocence, no matter how many layers of life wrap around it. Humanity is innocent; humanity is guilty, and both states are undeniably true.

~ Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Every election is determined by the people who show up.
~ Larry J. Sabato, Pendulum Swing

Quote of the Day

Image
Which of us are willing to lose ourselves enough to give another person a chance? I can’t lose myself. I don’t have enough feelings to fuel the fantasy or ignore the warnings.

~ Victoria Helen Stone, Jane Doe

"If you want me to stop, then stop me," he murmured before I felt the brush of his fangs on my throat. If my heart had been capable of beating, it would have started to race. I could not be in a more treacherous situation. So why did a reckless part of me want to tilt my head back to give him better access?

"Say no," he went on. "Or shove me away, and I'll stop." Then his tone turned darkly promising. "But if you do neither, I absolutely won't stop."
