Quotes by K.A. Wiggins  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Too many children have suffered. Too many families have been broken. Too many girls have grown up alone. Or not at all. I won’t let them ruin anyone else.”
K.A. Wiggins, Blind the Eyes

“Failure. An echo of the Mara’s voice—or maybe it’s my own—hisses in my ear. No. Not a failure, but . . . not quite finished. I am enough—for now. But I could be more. I want to be more.”
K.A. Wiggins, Blind the Eyes

“We’re strong, Cole. You just have to stop believing that all your strengths are wrong. Fight back. Stop waiting. Stop looking for someone else to save us. We’re enough, right now, just as we are.”
K.A. Wiggins, Blind the Eyes

“People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.”
A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

“The absence of pain led to an absence of fear, and the absence of fear led to a disregard for consequence.”
Victoria Schwab, Vicious

“Plenty of humans were monstrous, and plenty of monsters knew how to play at being human.”
Victoria Schwab, Vicious

“The air changes. Then that invisible spider crawls up my spine, tickling the hairs behind my neck.

I have come to know this spider these last couple of years. It whispers there’s something else in the room, breathing with you, watching you, grinning at you.

I hate that damn spider.”
Rin Chupeco, The Suffering

“I crawled into my books and pulled the pages up over my head.
(A Monstrous Regiment of Women)”
Laurie R King
