"WOW! I would give this 6 stars if I could! There are no words to adequately give praise to this final book in the Lymond Chronicles.

Leo Tolstoy
“Konstantin Levin did not like talking and hearing about the beauty of nature. Words for him took away the beauty of what he saw.”
Leo Tolstoy

Jeanette Winterson
“The curious are always in some danger. If you are curious you might never come home, like all the men who now live with mermaids at the bottom of the sea.

Or the people who found Atlantis.”
Jeanette Winterson, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit

Ray Bradbury
“Self-consciousness is the enemy of all art, be it acting, writing, painting, or living itself, which is the greatest art of all.”
Ray Bradbury

C.S. Lewis
“Emeth speaking of Aslan, "Beloved, said the Glorious One, unless thy desire had been for me thou wouldst not have sought so long and so truly. For all find what they truly seek...And since then, O Kings and Ladies, I have been wandering to find him and my happiness is so great that it even weakens me like a wound. And this is the marvel of marvels, that he called me Beloved, me who am but as a dog”
C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle

Sylvia Plath
“Some things are hard to write about. After something happens to you, you go to write it down, and either you over dramatize it, or underplay it, exaggerate the wrong parts or ignore the important ones. At any rate, you never write it quite the way you want to.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
