“When the darkness gets easier, you know you're sinking deeper, becoming dead yourself.”
Lucy Christopher, Stolen: A Letter to My Captor

Benjamin Alire Sáenz, Last Night I Sang to the Monster

Alysha Speer
“On a second note, though, I have something to say about pain. There are lots of kinds of pain. Pain of smashing your fingers in a car door, pains of loosing a baby, pain of failing a test. But in their own little ways, these pains are all agonizing. Which is sad, and yet, happy, if you really think about it. If we never lost our car keys, or stepped in gum, or had a bad hair day, what kind of people would we be? In a word? Boring. We wouldn't be passionate; we wouldn't know it was exciting to get pregnant, or score an A on a final. So that's why, today at least, I am grateful for pain. Because it's part of what makes me the whacky, goofy, jaded, person that I am. Peace.”
Alysha Speer

Ally Blake
“I’m a cold-hearted bastard. I’m insular, I’m jaded, a workaholic, I’m ruthless and I’m self-serving. I don’t do forever, I rarely even do “I’ll call you tomorrow”. And just because I’m here now it does not mean if you ask me to stay I will.”
Ally Blake, Getting Red-Hot with the Rogue

Shannon L. Alder
“If a man says he is Christian, yet he has no problems knocking you up, having premarital sex or living in sin with you, then you have to ask yourself, “What version of Christ does he believe in?”

Richard Matheson
“You can get used to horror, he thought. When it has lost immediacy and is no longer pungent and has become a steady diet. When it has degraded to a chain of mind-numbing events. (“Lover When You're Near Me”)”
Richard Matheson, Collected Stories, Vol. 1

John Hart
“For a year, Johnny lived the new, brutal truth that he was on his own.
But that's the way it was. What had been concrete one day proved sand the next; strength was illusion; faith meant shit. So what? So his once-bright world had devolved to cold, wet fog. That was life, the new order. Johnny had nothing to trust but himself, so that's the way he rolled - his path, his choices, and no looking back.”
John Hart, The Last Child

Cammie McGovern
“According to Sarah, who had gone two years ago, prom was famous for being an overpriced disappointment where most people had no fun.”
Cammie McGovern, Say What You Will

Lilly Black
“Little girl, you could wrap my cock in duct tape, and I'll still make you see God.”
Lilly Black, A Jade's Trick

Stephen M. Irwin
“A month ago, Gavin had given his employer four weeks' notice. "I'll get a job around here," he'd told her. "Something low-stress, part-time, maybe. We're not paying rent, and Dad's left us plenty. You should quit, too." A year earlier this news would have filled her with delicious, full fat, chocolate-coated joy. But now, after a grueling routine of shitty work, shitty- weird home life in a house where the shadow of a dead boy walked more solidly than the grownups, shitty headaches, shitty worry about a husband who couldn't keep his dick out of other women, the golden offer just weirded Laine out. She didn't trust it.”
Stephen M. Irwin, The Dead Path

Donna Jo Napoli
“Or, in truth, eventually, though I still noticed, the callouses on my spirit prevented wounds (p.75).”
Donna Jo Napoli, The Magic Circle

Trebor Healey
“Jaded. I never understood the term. Jade is pretty and worth something, yes? I was rusted if I was anything. Too long in the rain. Going out in an orange blaze of muted, anonymous, common-as-dirt oxidation.”
Trebor Healey, A Horse Named Sorrow

Emily Brontë
“Being repulsed continually hardened her,”
Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights
