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
“I'm not blessed, or merciful. I'm just me. I've got a job to do, and I do it. Listen: even as we're talking, I'm there for old and young, innocent and guilty, those who die together and those who die alone. I'm in cars and boats and planes; in hospitals and forests and abbatoirs. For some folks death is a release, and for others death is an abomination, a terrible thing. But in the end, I'm there for all of them.”
Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 3: Dream Country

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

Neil Gaiman
“Remember: that giants sleep too soundly; that witches are often betrayed by their appetites; dragons have one soft spot, somewhere, always; hearts can be well-hidden, and you can betray them with your tongue. (from "Instructions")”
Neil Gaiman, Fragile Things: Short Fictions and Wonders

Neil Gaiman
“Most people don't realize how important librarians are. I ran across a book recently which suggested that the peace and prosperity of a culture was solely related to how many librarians it contained. Possibly a slight overstatement. But a culture that doesn't value its librarians doesn't value ideas and without ideas, well, where are we?”
Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman
“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”
Neil Gaiman
