Chris Cleave
“I ask you right here please to agree with me that a scar is never ugly. That is what the scar makers want us to think. But you and I, we must make an agreement to defy them.

Chris Cleave, Little Bee

“I jerked my chin toward Frost’s body. ‘All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.’
Hao said, “Life is not safe. A man might spend his whole time on earth staying safe in a basement, and in the end, he still dies like everyone else.” Half-naked, covered with the same filth we all were, he still gave the impression of being in control of himself and his environment.”
Patricia Briggs, Frost Burned

Frederick Rolfe
“Shall I tell you the difference between our Holy Father and ourselves? We see things from a single view-point. He sees things from several. We decide that the thing is as we see it. But He has seen it otherwise, and He presents it as a more or less complete coaction of its qualities. See this sapphire. Well, you see the face of it: underneath, if I take it off my finger, there are a number of facets to be seen and a number more which are hidden by the gold of the setting. Now my meaning is that our Holy Father has seen all the facets as well as the table of the sapphire, or the thing. Consequently He knows a great deal more about the sapphire, or the thing, than we do. You must have noted that in Him. You must have noted how that every now and then, when He deigns to explain, He makes mysteries appear most wonderfully lucid.”
Frederick Rolfe, Hadrian the Seventh

“Its all about perception, that is how you look at. Your own thoughts and outlook defines whether it is good or bad. And your definition determines your response.”
Stella Payton

Jarod Kintz
“I am a rebel! But I don’t want people to agree with my views, because if everyone agreed with me then I wouldn’t be rebellious anymore. Did you hear what I heard? Because I heard what I said. Hear what I mean, which is not necessarily what I say.”
Jarod Kintz, This Book is Not FOR SALE

Amy Neftzger

Holly Lynn Payne
“....it struck her that that perhaps everyone had the ability to see themselves in others. Even in the rocks. Even in the roses.”
Holly Lynn Payne, DAMASCENA - The Tale of Roses and Rumi

“There is the truth , the perception of truth, and versions that don't even come close; but it's the perception that creates the most conflict every time.”
Johnnie Dent Jr.

Shannon L. Alder
“Who gets to be the judge of reality? If it was deeply felt, believed, spoken about often or altered your life course, then it was real enough. Faith doesn't get the luxury of all those things one hundred percent of the time, but we call that normal behavior based on a gut feeling.” I said. I looked at his wife and she busted out laughing. Her husband was trying to catch invisible butterflies above his head—dementia. My patients teach me the most sobering of truths: Why wreck his smile. If I could see them, I would want to catch them too.”
Shannon L. Alder

“I start to think, 'It's awful being too poor to even buy my own dress for homecoming.' But that's instantly swept away by another thought: 'I'm so lucky that someone cates enough to loan me a dress.”
Margaret Peterson Haddix, Full Ride

“Pescatore marveled at the seascape. It gave him vertigo. The wind deployed cloud formations. The sun seared the Moroccan coastline. He had read a line once about "the lion-colored hills of Africa." Were they lion-colored? What color was a lion exactly?”
Sebastian Rotella

Kevin James Moore
