They would be irresistible.”
Nenia Campbell, Horrorscape

And somehow, against all reason, we were kissing. I closed my eyes, and the world around me faded.”
Richelle Mead, The Indigo Spell

Harlan Ellison
“It is not merely enough to love literature if one wishes to spend one's life as a writer. It is a dangerous undertaking on the most primitive level. For, it seems to me, the act of writing with serious intent involves enormous personal risk. It entails the ongoing courage for self-discovery. It means one will walk forever on the tightrope, with each new step presenting the possiblity of learning a truth about oneself that is too terrible to bear.”
Harlan Ellison

Amit Kalantri
“The most dangerous irony is, people are angry with others because of their own incompetence.”
Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words

Madeleine L'Engle
“Two people whose opinion I respect told me that the word "Christian" would turn people off. This certainly says something about the state of Christianity today. I wouldn't mind if to be a Christian were accepted as being the dangerous thing which it is; I wouldn't mind if, when a group of Christians meet for bread and wine, we might well be interrupted and jailed for subversive activities; I wouldn't mind if, once again, we were being thrown to the lions. I do mind, desperately, that the word "Christian" means for so many people smugness, and piosity, and holier-than-thouness. Who today can recognize a Christian because of "how those Christians love one another?”
Madeleine L'Engle, A Circle of Quiet

“The most dangerous people in the world are not the tiny minority instigating evil acts, but those who do the acts for them. For example, when the British invaded India, many Indians accepted to work for the British to kill off Indians who resisted their occupation. So in other words, many Indians were hired to kill other Indians on behalf of the enemy for a paycheck. Today, we have mercenaries in Africa, corporate armies from the western world, and unemployed men throughout the Middle East killing their own people - and people of other nations - for a paycheck. To act without a conscience, but for a paycheck, makes anyone a dangerous animal. The devil would be powerless if he couldn't entice people to do his work. So as long as money continues to seduce the hungry, the hopeless, the broken, the greedy, and the needy, there will always be war between brothers.”
Suzy Kassem

William Shakespeare
“He reads much;
He is a great observer and he looks
Quite through the deeds of men: he loves no plays,
As thou dost, Antony; he hears no music;
Seldom he smiles, and smiles in such a sort
As if he mock'd himself and scorn'd his spirit
That could be moved to smile at any thing.
Such men as he be never at heart's ease
Whiles they behold a greater than themselves,
And therefore are they very dangerous.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar

Nenia Campbell
“You're like a half-tamed creature, still shy of the bridle. 'Except you enthrall me, never shall be free.' But freedom is an illusion, anyway.”
Nenia Campbell, Fearscape

Adam Levin
“It is dangerous to exist in the world. To exist is to be threatened. We must live with threats.”
Adam Levin, The Instructions

Shannon L. Alder
“It is not the homeless, mentally ill or extremely cunning people that we have to be afraid of. When someone loses everything that meant something to them is when people should get very afraid. A person that has nothing to lose is the scariest person on earth.”
Shannon L. Alder

Jane Austen
“An interval of meditation, serious and grateful, was the best corrective of everything dangerous.”
Jane Austen, Persuasion

Sophie Jordan, Uninvited

J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Daniel Wallace
“Magic is dangerous: it's neither good nor bad, right nor wrong; it can be both a blessing and a curse. It takes strength, the strength of a man, to make the magic his own, to make it serve him, and not the other way around.”
Daniel Wallace, The Kings and Queens of Roam

“The deep woods can be very dangerous. Dangerous, dangerous, dangerous and weird. And weird weird.”
