Sylvia Plath

Jarod Kintz
“Sleeping in a tinfoil suit keeps me warmer and helps prepare me for my voyage to the moon. Would you care for some licorice?”

Lev Grossman
“I have a little theory that I'd like to air here, if I may. What is it that you think makes you magicians?" More silence. Fogg was well into rhetorical-question territory now anyway. He spoke more softly. "Is it because you are intelligent? Is it because you are brave and good? Is is because you're special?

Maybe. Who knows. But I'll tell you something: I think you're magicians because you're unhappy. A magician is strong because he feels pain. He feels the difference between what the world is and what he would make of it. Or what did you think that stuff in your chest was? A magician is strong because he hurts more than others. His wound is his strength.

Most people carry that pain around inside them their whole lives, until they kill the pain by other means, or until it kills them. But you, my friends, you found another way: a way to use the pain. To burn it as fuel, for light and warmth. You have learned to break the world that has tried to break you.”
Lev Grossman, The Magicians

Thomas de Quincey
“Surely everyone is aware of the divine pleasures which attend a wintry fireside; candles at four o'clock, warm hearthrugs, tea, a fair tea-maker, shutters closed, curtains flowing in ample draperies to the floor, whilst the wind and rain are raging audibly without.”
Thomas de Quincey, Confessions of an English Opium Eater

Brandon Sanderson
“Those candle flames were like the lives of men. So fragile. So deadly. Left alone, they lit and warmed. Let run rampant, they would destroy the very things they were meant to illuminate. Embryonic bonfires, each bearing a seed of destruction so potent it could tumble cities and dash kings to their knees.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings

Haruki Murakami
“My arm was not what she needed, but the arm of someone else. My warmth was not what she needed, but the warmth of someone else.”
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

Vera Nazarian
“Snowflakes swirl down gently in the deep blue haze beyond the window. The outside world is a dream.

Inside, the fireplace is brightly lit, and the Yule log crackles with orange and crimson sparks.

There’s a steaming mug in your hands, warming your fingers.

There’s a friend seated across from you in the cozy chair, warming your heart.

There is mystery unfolding.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

C. JoyBell C.
“Where are you?" he asked. "I'm right here" she said. "I know, but it feels like one percent of you is somewhere else, where is that one percent?" he said. "I don't know....I think I'm always like that..." she answered. "I like that." "You do?" "Yes, because that way, I have to always look for the one percent to find it.”
C. JoyBell C.

“All the statistics in the world can't measure the warmth of a smile.”
Chris Hart

Vera Nazarian
“Ice is most welcome in a cold drink on a hot day.

But in the heart of winter, you want a warm hot mug with your favorite soothing brew to keep the chill away.

When you don’t have anything warm at hand, even a memory can be a small substitute.

Remember a searing look of intimate eyes.

Receive the inner fire.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Dejan Stojanovic
“I enjoy it when the world smiles; the more smiles, the warmer I am.”
Dejan Stojanovic, The Shape

Richelle E. Goodrich
“The glory of fame isn't in having so many people know you, but in having so many people know you care. Otherwise, it's like being drawn to a fire to find no warmth.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway: Quotes, Verse, & Grumblings for Every Day of the Year

Franny Billingsley
“We laughed a lot and I grew warmer still, lovely and warm. I do realize that some of that warmth was due to the wine, but there was much more to it than that. There are two distinct aspects to Communion wine: one aspect is the wine itself, the other is the idea of communion. Wine is certainly warming, but communion is a great deal more so.”
Franny Billingsley, Chime

“my mother
is pure radiance.

she is the sun
i can touch
and kiss

and hold
without
getting burnt.”
Sanober Khan

“It was a vision of the one thing that we both hoped someday would be...the warmth of our bodies next to each other's, reflected in sunset of our secret place... We longed for it to be like this, each and every evening... Dancing in the night, playing hide-and-seek in the day, the beauty of our souls blossoms... Never before had we felt so happy, never before had we felt so alive... We hear the birds, sensing the cheerful breeze, the rainbow's end does linger here....our tenderness, sighs and spirits speak and we do know clear... This place is where love and laughter meet... You take my hand, kiss each finger tip, with tears in your eyes you touch my cheek and whisper of how wondrous this, we share our love once again. The love that gives us wings to fly anew. Our hearts in sweet pleasing pain beat as one in the rhythm of long forgotten yet melody... Together again at this wondrous place, where just our presence adds more grace and makes it what was meant to be - a place for you a place for me...”
Oksana Rus

Anthony Liccione
“Teeth aren't pearly, until you smile.”
Anthony Liccione

“and the afterglow...
of your gaze...is the only
sweater that I need.”
Sanober Khan, Turquoise Silence

“With callused hands
i tasted
the softness of the moon

in the coldest winds
i discovered
my soul's
warmest fireplace

in the roughness
of his stubble
the tenderest love.”
Sanober Khan

“stronger than mountains.
a place where my heart
feels the safest-
underneath his shirt.”
Sanober Khan

Mary Balogh
“I am afraid that it will all be ruined. It is like stepping out into the darkness when one has a world of light and warmth behind one.”
Mary Balogh, The Devil's Web

“I realized

June had never been
just a month

music...
never just a tremble
on my lips

warmth was never
merely a blanket.”
Sanober Khan, A touch, a tear, a tempest

“This winter, there will be no voices, no glimpses, no arms.
only the fabric of poetry, to keep me warm.”

“Perhaps it was the way he'd look at me and smile,
Perhaps it was the sound of his voice after being utterly defeated,
Perhaps it was the warmth of his touch,
Perhaps I've always been in love with you”
Tanzy Sayadi, Better to be able to love than to be loveable

James Thurber

Jason Medina, A Ghost In New Orleans
