Seventh Heaven by Patti Smith
“Edie Sedgwick (1943-1971)

I don't know how she did it. Fire
She was shaking all over. It took
her hours to put her make-up on.
But she did it. Even the false eye-lashes.
She ordered gin with triple
limes. Then a limosine. Everyone
knew she was the real heroine of
Blonde on Blonde.
oh it isn't fair
oh it isn't fair
how her ermine hair
turned men around
she was white on white
so blonde on blonde
and her long long legs
how I used to beg
to dance with her
but I never had
a chance with her
oh it isn't fair
how her ermine hair
used to swing so nice
used to cut the air
how all the men
used to dance with her
I never got a chance with her
though I really asked her
down deep
where you do
really dream
in the mind
reading love
I'd get
inside
her move
and we'd
turn around
and she'd
turn around
and turn the head
of everyone in town
her shaking shaking
glittering bones
second blonde child
after brian jones
oh it isn't fair

how I dreamed of her
and she slept
and she slept
forever
and I'll never dance
with her no never
she broke down
like a baby
like a ba

Just a recap of 'A Games of Thrones'. This is the first book in the series 'A Song of Ice and Fire'. Some questions are gimmes, some are hard. You should probably have the book read before taking the quiz, there may be spoilers.

Redwall by Brian Jacques
“Even the strongest and bravest must sometimes weep. It shows they have a great heart, one that can feel compassion for others.”

“Even the strongest and bravest must sometimes weep. It shows they have a great heart, one that can feel compassion for others.”
Brian Jacques, Redwall

Christina Haag
“And in an empty theater, with the ghost light on and the darkness, warm and velvet like a dinner jacket my father once wore, it’s mine.”
Christina Haag, Come to the Edge

Anne McCaffrey
“Make no judgments where you have no compassion.”
Anne McCaffrey

C.G. Jung
“The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.”
C.G. Jung

Christina Haag
“Sometimes it’s the place where you grew up that says, You belong to me. No matter how long I’ve been away, when I come back to New York City in a taxi over the Triborough Bridge and the afternoon sun shifts off the steel skyline and blinds me, I feel it. In the heavy July of privet tinged with sea salt on the East End of Long Island, where I spent nearly every summer until I was twenty and many since, I know it. And in an empty theater, with the ghost light on and the darkness, warm and velvet like a dinner jacket my father once wore, it’s mine.”
Christina Haag, Come to the Edge
