Quotes Amy Liked

Clive Barker
“Nothing ever begins.
There is no first moment; no single word or place from which this or any story springs.
The threads can always be traced back to some earlier tale, and the tales that preceded that; though as the narrator's voice recedes the connections will seem to grow more tenuous, for each age will want the tale told as if it were of its own making.”
Clive Barker, Weaveworld

Clive Barker
“That which is imagined can never be lost.”
Clive Barker, Weaveworld

Clive Barker
“All had this in common: that if they returned from the Empty Quarter - even though their journey might have taken them only a day's ride into that place - they came back changed men. Nobody could set his eyes on such a void and return to hearth and home without having lost a part of himself to the wilderness forever. Many, having endured the void once, went back, and back again, as if daring the desert to claim them; not content until it did. And those unhappy few who died at home, died with their eyes not on the loving faces at their bedside, nor on the cherry tree in blossom outside the window, but on that waste that called them as only the Abyss can call, promising the soul the balm of nothingness.”
Clive Barker, Weaveworld

Clive Barker
“Always, worlds within worlds.”
Clive Barker, Weaveworld

Clive Barker
“Maybe the man had taken the wrong turning, but at least he'd travelled some extraordinary roads.”
Clive Barker, Weaveworld

Clive Barker
“To dream in isolation can be properly splendid to be sure; but to dream in company seems to me infinitely preferable.”
Clive Barker, Weaveworld
