"I said it for Kenny and the Dragon and I'll say it again here: DiTerlizzi's storytelling is like fantastical spectres--appealing from a distance, but get up close and there's nothing to hold onto." Aug 06, 2014 04:52AM

Steph Su is on page 122 of 321 of Sharp Objects: While Gone Girl was a Da Vinci Code-esque fast-paced thriller read for me, I think I'm going to relate to Sharp Objects much more: the protagonist with the painful history and minefield family relationships, the utterly inexplicable viciousness of teenage girls, the pros and cons of living in a small town and knowing everybody's business.

Octavia E. Butler
“You are hierarchical. That's the older and more entrenched characteristic. We saw it in your closest animal relatives and in your most distant ones. It's a terrestrial characteristic. When human intelligence served it instead of guiding it, when human intelligence did not even acknowledge it as a problem, but took pride in it or did not notice it at all... That was like ignoring cancer.”
Octavia E. Butler

L.M. Montgomery
“Love you! Girl, you're in the very core of my heart. I hold you there like a jewel. Didn't I promise you I'd never tell you a lie? Love you! I love you with all there is of me to love. Heart, soul, brain. Every fibre of body and spirit thrilling to the sweetness of you. There's nobody in the world for me but you, Valancy.”
L.M. Montgomery, The Blue Castle

W.H. Davies
Leisure

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare? —
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.”
W.H. Davies, The Collected Poems of William H. Davies

Juliet Marillier
“Man sets his hand to games of power and influence, he quests for far horizons and wealth beyond imagining. He thinks to own what cannot be possessed. He hews the ancient trees to broaden his grazing lands; he mines the deep caves and topples the standing stones. He embraces a new faith with fervor and, perhaps, with sincerity. But he grows ever further from the old things. He can no longer hear the heartbeat of the earth, his mother. He cannot smell the change in the air; he cannot see what lies beyond the veil of shadows. Even his new god is formed in his own image, for do they not call him the son of man? By his own choice he is cut adrift from the ancient cycles of sun and moon, the ordered passing of the seasons. And without him, the Fair Folk dwindle and are nothing. They retreat and hide themselves, and are reduced to the clurichaun with his little ale jug; the brownie who steals the cow's milk at Samhain; the half-heard wailing of the banshee. They become no more than a memory in the mind of a frail old man; a tale told by a crazy old woman.”
Juliet Marillier, Child of the Prophecy

Jenny Downham
“I miss him as soon as he goes. When he isn't with me, I think I made him up.”
Jenny Downham, Before I Die
