“And the single last thing in my head: that I like him better than I’ve ever liked anyone and that of all the things he’s ever done to me, making me like him so much is by far the worst.”
― Holly Black, The Wicked King

Quote of the Day

“Why didn’t you become a sorcerer, Geralt? Weren’t you ever attracted by the Art? Be honest.”
“I will. I was.”
“Why, then, didn’t you follow the voice of that attraction?”
“I decided it would be wiser to follow the voice of good sense.”
“Meaning?”
“Years of practice in the witcher’s trade have taught me not to bite off more than I can chew. Do you know, Vilgefortz, I once knew a dwarf, who, as a child, dreamed of being an elf. What do you think; would he have become one had he followed the voice of attraction?”

The Time of Contempt, Andrzej Sapkowski

If civilization is ever going to be anything but a grandiose pratfall, anything more than a can of deodorizer in the shithouse of existence, then statesmen are going to have to concern themselves with magic and poetry.

“And the flavor of Pippa’s kiss—bittersweet and strange—stayed with me all the way back uptown, swaying and sleepy as I sailed home on the bus, melting with sorrow and loveliness, a starry ache that lifted me up above the windswept city like a kite: my head in the rainclouds, my heart in the sky.”

~ Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch
