“Every man's life is a fairy tale, written by God's fingers.”
Hans Christian Andersen

“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”
C.S. Lewis

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
Neil Gaiman, Coraline

“When the time comes to leap in faith whether you have your eyes open or closed or scream all the way down or not makes no practical difference.”
Lois McMaster Bujold

“If I am the pawn of the gods, it is because they know me so well, not because they make my mind up for me.”

Me and My Awesome Older Sister(who introduced me to your books, by the way) got our brother to read "Knife". He really liked it. He said he was shipping Paul and Knife almost instantly.
