“If a life can be ruined in a single moment, a moment of betrayal, or violence, or ill luck, then why can a life not also be saved, be worth living, be made, by just a few pure moments of perfection?”
Marcus Sedgwick, Midwinterblood

“There's always a third choice in life. Even if you think you're stuck between two impossible choices, there's always a third way. You just have to look for it.”
Marcus Sedgwick, Revolver

“A story has its purpose and its path. It must be told correctly for it to be understood.”
Marcus Sedgwick
