“.....It's funny, but your parents can give you everything in the world, but they can't teach you what to do with it. That, you have to learn for yourself.”
Amanda Carpenter, The Winter King

“Surely,' she said, much quieter, more reasonable, 'surely you've been with other women?'
His glance at her was dry. 'What do you think?'
She looked away at random. 'I think that it appears we have a double standard, here. Men can have sex, women can't. Who, then, do the men have sex with?”
Amanda Carpenter, Rose-Coloured Love

“The individual act of will is the strongest, most transcendent part of us. To look upon something with our deepest overriding passions, whether it be rage, grief, hope or love, and yet recognise a greater need or goal, and to say, "I will do this" or "I will not do that", no matter what the personal cost, is a triumph of the spirit. The exercise of the will is the art of humans in the state of being.'
--”
Amanda Carpenter, The Winter King
