“There are times when the unseen can be even more dangerous than what our eyes behold.”
Erin Forbes, Fire & Ice: The Elementals

“Behind her gentle character, the strength of armor was found.”
Erin Forbes, Fire & Ice: The Kindred Woods

“I did not know what the future would bring, but I knew that life is not merely about knowledge. It is about the courage and trust that we place in our stories.”
Erin Forbes, Fire & Ice: The Elementals

“Not all are called to be artists in the specific sense of the term. Yet, as Genesis has it, all men and women are entrusted with the task of crafting their own life: in a certain sense, they are to make of it a work of art, a masterpiece.”
John Paul II

“If a little flower could speak, it seems to me that it would tell us quite simply all that God has done for it, without hiding any of its gifts. It would not, under the pretext of humility, say that it was not pretty, or that it had not a sweet scent, that the sun had withered its petals,or the storm bruised its stem, if it knew that such were not the case.”
St. Thérèse de Lisieux, Story of a Soul: The Autobiography of St. Thérèse of Lisieux

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
C.S. Lewis

“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It's splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

“Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know”
