Ally Carter
“I didn’t know what was more disturbing—the fact that something was obviously wrong, or that three faculty members of the world’s premiere spy school had forgotten to lock the door.”
Ally Carter, I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You

John le Carré
“I have a theory which I suspect is rather immoral,' Smiley went on, more lightly. 'Each of us has only a quantum of compassion. That if we lavish our concern on every stray cat, we never get to the centre of things.”
John le Carré, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy
