Lynne shared a quote
The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
“There are instruments and human players but sometimes a fiddle or a drum make instruments of those who play them, and all are put in servitude to the song.”

Markus Zusak
“A small but noteworthy note. I've seen so many young men over the years who think they're running at other young men. They are not. They are running at me.”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

Erin Morgenstern
“Nothing's impossible," Poppet responds. She smiles at him and jumps, her red hair trailing out behind her as she falls.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

Andrew Davidson
“These day's I like to imagine that if a man were to enter through the slash on the book's cover, as if it were a door, he could walk right into the heart of the Inferno.”
Andrew Davidson, The Gargoyle

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

Diana Gabaldon
“The most irritating thing about cliches, I decided, was how frequently they were true.”
Diana Gabaldon, Voyager
