Neil Gaiman
“I mean, maybe I am crazy. I mean, maybe. But if this is all there is, then I don't want to be sane.”
Neil Gaiman, Neverwhere

Robin Sloan
“After that, the book will fade, the way all books fade in your mind. But I hope you will remember this:
A man walking fast down a dark lonely street. Quick steps and hard breathing, all wonder and need. A bell above a door and the tinkle it makes. A clerk and a ladder and warm golden light, and then: the right book exactly, at exactly the right time.”
Robin Sloan, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

Douglas Adams
“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

Books fall open, you fall in.
“Books fall open, you fall in.”
David T.W. McCord

Patrick Rothfuss
“It was wise enough to know itself, and brave enough to BE itself, and wild enough to change itself while somehow staying altogether true.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Slow Regard of Silent Things
