Romana Challans shared a quote
My mind has been once more blown by Bill Bryson and his book on the American language and how it came to be.
Made in America by Bill Bryson
“The inhabitants of England in the age of Chaucer commonly used an expression, to be in hide and hair, meaning to be lost or beyond discovery. But then it disappears from the written record for four hundred years before resurfacing, suddenly and unexpectedly, in America in 1857 as neither hide nor hair. It is dearly unlikely that the phrase went into a linguistic coma for four centuries. So who was quietly preserving it for four hundred years, and why did it so abruptly return to prominence in the sixth decade of the nineteenth century in a country two thousand miles away?”

The Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews remains one of my absolute favourite book series of all time. Actually, this amazing pairing (is a husband wife pairing) has not written anything I *DINN'T* like, but the Kate Daniels world is my favourite.

“As the earth dies your spirit will bloom; as the world fades your soul will rise and glisten. Amongst the dehydrated crevices of a desert earth you will stumble upon your diamonds; in between the dry skulls and cracked bones you will find your sapphires.”
C. JoyBell C.

“I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.”
Rutger Hauer, All Those Moments: Stories of Heroes, Villains, Replicants, and Blade Runners
