“All stories are true. But some of them never happened.”
James A. Owen, The Search for the Red Dragon

“Simple,' Tummeler replied.' Blueberries is one of the great forces o'good in the world.'

How do you figure that?' said Charles.

Well,' said Tummeler, 'have you ever seen a troll, or a Wendigo, or,' he shuddered, 'a Shadow-Born ever eating a blueberry pie?'

No,' Charles admitted.

There y'go,' said Tummeler. It's cause they can't stand the goodness in it.'

Can't argue with you there,' said Charles.

Foods is good and evil, just like people, or badgers, or even scowlers.'

Evil food?' said Charles.

Parsnips,' said Tummeler, 'Them's as evil as they come.”
James A. Owen, Here, There Be Dragons

“Our weaknesses are always evident, both to ourselves and others. But our strengths are hidden until we choose to reveal them--and that is when we are truly tested. When all that we have within is exposed, and we may no longer blame our inadequacies for our failure, but must instead depend upon our strengths to succeed ... that is when the measure of a man is taken, my boy.”
James A. Owen, Here, There Be Dragons
