I can’t stand cruelty to animals.

Nothing gives a man the right to take his frustrations out on an innocent creature.


Pitch Black, Elise Noble

Quote of the Day

Image
Aunt Vidala said that best friends led to whispering and plotting and keeping secrets, and plotting and secrets led to disobedience to God, and disobedience led to rebellion, and girls who were rebellious became women who were rebellious, and a rebellious woman was even worse than a rebellious man because rebellious men became traitors, but rebellious women became adulteresses.
~ Margaret Atwood, The Testaments

Quote of the Day

Don’t confuse loudness with happiness. He’s got the volume all the way up, but that’s just to cover up the gaping hole inside.
~ Chuck Wendig, Wanderers

Quote of the Day

Image
I blinked lazily up at the marshal. His grimace spoke volumes.
I had fallen into the dreams. It was easier there. Nothing made any sense in reality. And it hurt. Everywhere I looked it hurt. Dreams didn’t hurt. Compared to the new world, dreams were old friends that didn’t die, unlike real ones.

Shoot the Messenger, Pippa DaCosta

In a universe of ambiguity,
this kind of certainty comes only
once, and never again,
no matter how many lifetimes you live.

“Why is it,” Jonathan puzzled, “that the hardest thing in the world is to convince a bird that he is free, and that he can prove it for himself if he’d spend a little time practicing? Why should that be so hard?”
~ Richard Bach,
Jonathan Livingston Seagull

Quote of the Day

Image
There are scars on my heart, just as thick, as disfiguring as those on my face. I know they’re there. I hope some undamaged tissue remains, a patch through which love can come in and flow out. I hope.

~ Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, Gail Honeyman

Quote of the Day

“Love is a luxury.”

“No. Love is an element.”

An element. Like air to breathe, earth to stand on.

― Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone

Quote of the Day

Image
“I am going to keep on defying you. I am going to shame you with my defiance. You remind me that I am a mere mortal and you are a prince of Faerie. Well, let me remind you that means you have much to lose and I have nothing. You may win in the end, you may ensorcell me and hurt me and humiliate me, but I will make sure you lose everything I can take from you on the way down. I promise you this” — I throw his own words back at him — “this is the least of what I can do.”
~ Holly Black, The Cruel Prince

My happiest place might just be under a showerhead. It is here in the steam, covered in suds, that I do not feel like Monique Grant, woman left behind. Or even Monique Grant, stalled writer. I am just Monique Grant, owner of luxury bath products.
~ Taylor Jenkins Reid,  The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

“It’s a lovely day and we’re under siege.”

Her eyes shone with excitement. “Isn’t it marvelous?”
One Fell Sweep, Ilona Andrews

There are no ambitions noble enough to justify breaking someone's heart.
~ Colleen McCullough, The Thorn Birds

Humanity, whether you were optimistic or pessimistic, was either a hearty breed of survivors or a swarm of cockroaches in the wall.
