“A labyrinth, when it is big enough, is just the world.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There

Catherynne M. Valente
“After all, growing up is nothing but an argument with your parents on the topic of whether or not you are grown. You scream am so am so am so from the moment you're born, and they fire back are not are not are not from the moment they've got you, and on it goes until you can say it loudest.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two

You can only try to match up and never turn into a wolf while he's a rabbit, or a mouse while he's still busy being an owl, a brawny black bull while he's a little blue crab scuttling for shelter. It's harder than it sounds.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two
