"I really don't think I can do this. The main character is detestable. People only matter to her if they're hot enough, and she's ridiculously caught up in how super incredibly SO HOT she is herself." Mar 23, 2015 07:43PM

Pamela Dean
“It did occur to me that the effect of good literature may be as dizzying as that of alcohol.”
Pamela Dean

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Faërie contains many things besides elves and fays, and besides dwarfs, witches, trolls, giants, or dragons; it holds the seas, the sun, the moon, the sky; and the earth, and all things that are in it: tree and bird, water and stone, wine and bread, and ourselves, mortal men, when we are enchanted.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, Tolkien on Fairy-stories

Patrick Rothfuss
“I take back everything I ever said about that boy being clever." He turned around to face the bar while leveling an accusatory finger at the closed door. "That," he said firmly to the room in general, "is what comes of working with iron every day.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear

Juliet Marillier
“He would have told her - he would have said, it matters not if you are here or there, for I see you before me every moment. I see you in the light of the water, in the swaying of the young trees in the spring wind. I see you in the shadows of the great oaks, I hear your voice in the cry of the owl at night. You are the blood in my veins, and the beating of my heart. You are my first waking thought, and my last sigh before sleeping. You are - you are bone of my bone, and breath of my breath.”
Juliet Marillier, Daughter of the Forest

Terry Pratchett
“There was something about the eyes. It wasn’t the shape or the color. The was no evil glint. But there was…

… a look. It was such a look that a microbe might encounter if it could see up from the bottom end of the microscope. It said: You are nothing. It said: You are flawed, you have no value. It said: You are animal. It said: Perhaps you may be a pet, or perhaps you may be a quarry. It said: And the choice is not yours.
Terry Pratchett, Lords and Ladies
