“But talent—if you don't encourage it, if you don't train it, it dies. It might run wild for a little while, but it will never mean anything. Like a wild horse. If you don't tame it and teach it to run on track, to pace itself and bear a rider, it doesn't matter how fast it is. It's useless.”
Elizabeth Hand, Illyria

“You build a character, a shell, and if you build it right, something comes to live inside it.”
Elizabeth Hand, Illyria

“Endless longing; a face you'd known since childhood, since birth almost; a body that moved as though it were your own. These were things you never spoke of, things you never hoped for; things you could never admit to. Things you'd die for, and die of.”
Elizabeth Hand, Illyria
