Shirley Jackson
“I wonder if I could eat a child if I had the chance.'
'I doubt if I could cook one,' said Constance.”
Shirley Jackson, We Have Always Lived in the Castle

Julia Quinn
“What happened to your face?" Harriet asked.
"It was a misunderstanding," Daniel said smoothly, wondering how long it might take for his bruises to heal. He did not think he was particularly vain, but the questions were growing tiresome.
"A misunderstanding?" Elizabeth echoed. "With an anvil?"
"Oh, stop," Harriet admonished her. "I think he looks very dashing."
"As if he dashed into an anvil."
"Pay no attention," Harriet said to him. "She lacks imagination.”
Julia Quinn, A Night Like This
tags: humor

Shirley Jackson
“I really think I shall commence chapter forty-four," he said, patting his hands together. "I shall commence, I think, with a slight exaggeration and go on from there into an outright lie. Constance, my dear?"
"Yes, Uncle Julian?"
"I am going to say that my wife was a beautiful woman.”
Shirley Jackson, We Have Always Lived in the Castle

Georgette Heyer
“The charm of your society, My Sparrow, lies in not knowing what will you say next - though one rapidly learns to fear the worst!”
Georgette Heyer, Sylvester

Julia Quinn
“I won’t be satisfied with anything less than everything,”
Julia Quinn, A Night Like This
