C. JoyBell C.
“If people want something to be wrong about you— they are going to make things wrong about you. That is why it is my belief to never try and prove anything to anyone. Real diamonds belong to people who know how to spot a real diamond; they don’t belong to people who need to be convinced that they are real diamonds. It’s the idiots who need to be convinced of something that they cannot already see.”
C. JoyBell C.

C. JoyBell C.
“Diamonds are held under tons and tons of pressure, extremely high temperatures of fire and shuffled under shifting of tectonic plates, for a long, long time! Yet when they come out from there and are put on display for their beauty; does anybody stop to evaluate the diamond based upon all the shit it's been through and say "Remember that disgusting hole it used to be in? I bet it was hell in there!" No, people don't remember where a diamond has come from; they just see the beauty of it now. But it wouldn't have become so beautiful, you know, if not for all of that! So why should we look at other people, or at ourselves and evaluate them/ourselves based upon their/our pasts? Shouldn't we forget that? And only see the beauty that is in front of our eyes? Whatever it was, it made you beautiful! And that is what matters!”
C. JoyBell C.

Alan Bradley
“Vaporized by the sun! Wasn't that what the universe had in store for all of us? There would come a day when the sun exploded like a red balloon, and everyone on earth would be reduced in less than a camera flash to carbon. Didn't Genesis say as much? For dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. This was far more than dull old theology: It was precise scientific observation! Carbon was the Great Leveler--the Grim Reaper.

Diamonds were nothing more than carbon, but carbon in a crystal lattice that made it the hardest known mineral in nature. That was the way we all were headed. I was sure of it. We were destined to be diamonds!”
Alan Bradley, The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag

“Diamonds are only lumps of coal that stuck at it no matter how much heat or pressure they faced.”
Jeffrey Fry

Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle

Judith Martin
“It is wrong to wear diamonds before luncheon, except on one’s marriage rings. Before, after, and during breakfast, luncheon and dinner, it is vulgar to wear a mixture of colored precious stones. It is always a comfort to know that so many things one can’t afford to do anyway are vulgar.”
Judith Martin, Miss Manners' Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior

Philip Levine
“… the river sliding along its banks, darker now than the sky descending a last time to scatter its diamonds into these black waters that contain the day that passed, the night to come.
— Excerpt from the poem “The Mercy”

Owl City

Eric Siblin
“It [Bach's cello suites] is like a great diamond," said [Mischa] Maisky in a thick Russian accent, "with so many different cuts that reflect light in so many different ways.”
Eric Siblin, The Cello Suites

“As in diamonds so in batting, perfection requires flawlessness and nowhere is a batting imperfection more quickly recognised than in the dropped catch. For this reason any innings worthy of consideration deserves to have all its flaws studied to establish whether or not it is the genuine gem or just masquerading as one under the glitter of big hitting or weight of runs.”
Patrick Ferriday, Masterly Batting: 100 Great Test Innings

Jeffrey Whittam
“This is a story of Africa. A pioneer woman's journey north was merely the beginning.”

“All they give a fuck about is the money now. You don't do art for money. So these fuckers always spitting about Rolex's n bottles n shit, don't actually give a fuck about y'all. They've lost themselves. Meaning, they were in it for the cash from the get-go. They aren't artists, they are criminals, like the devil in disguise. That's why I don't want paid. I do this for art. Not paper. Art lives on when the body fades.”
Scott McGoldrick

Katlyn Charlesworth
“Her heart is of a much harder material... A diamond. Beautiful, but deadly…

And amid people with hearts of diamonds, it is best to remember that no one is exempt from their malevolence. Not even themselves.”
Katlyn Charlesworth, Where Men Sit

Bethany Anne Miller
“For a life where diamonds really are forever”
Bethany Anne Miller, Forever Stuck
