Quip-er-quill Quip-er-quill said: "I'm always "currently reading" this book. It lives in a basket beside my bed and I read a letter or two when I can't sleep or when no other book will do. Which is actually a compliment although it probably doesn't sound like it to most folks. "

A good book and I enjoyed it. But not anything earth-shattering, just a straight-forward Norse tale. I heard a lot more of Neil Gaiman's voice, at least how he sounds in interviews, than I ever have in any of his other books, which kind of took me ou...more

Neil Gaiman
“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
Neil Gaiman, Coraline

J.R.R. Tolkien
“The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Neil Gaiman
“I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school. They don't teach you how to love somebody. They don't teach you how to be famous. They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer. They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind. They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying. They don't teach you anything worth knowing.”
Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Never laugh at live dragons.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

Neil Gaiman
“Let us begin this letter, this prelude to an encounter, formally, as a declaration, in the old-fashioned way: I love you. You do not know me (although you have seen me, smiled at me). I know you (although not so well as I would like. I want to be there when your eyes flutter open in the morning, and you see me, and you smile. Surely this would be paradise enough?). So I do declare myself to you now, with pen set to paper. I declare it again: I love you.”
Neil Gaiman
