Hard not to like Perry. A bookseller in Columbus (St. Louis?) gave me this book when I was on tour. It kept me happy and laughing through the rest of my continent hopping.

“Sometimes standing against evil is more important than defeating it. The greatest heroes stand because it is right to do so, not because they believe they will walk away with their lives. Such selfless courage is a victory in itself.”
N.D. Wilson, Dandelion Fire

“The world is rated R, and no one is checking IDs. Do not try to make it G by imagining the shadows away. Do not try to hide your children from the world forever, but do not try to pretend there is no danger. Train them. Give them sharp eyes and bellies full of laughter. Make them dangerous. Make them yeast, and when they’ve grown, they will pollute the shadows.”
N.D. Wilson, Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl: Wide-Eyed Wonder in God's Spoken World

“Do not resent your place in the story. Do not imagine yourself elsewhere. Do not close your eyes and picture a world without thorns, without shadows, without hawks. Change this world. Use your body like a tool meant to be used up, discarded, and replaced. Better every life you touch. We will reach the final chapter. When we have eyes that can stare into the sun, eyes that only squint for the Shenikah, then we will see laughing children pulling cobras by their tails, and hawks and rabbits playing tag.”
N.D. Wilson, Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl: Wide-Eyed Wonder in God's Spoken World
