Quotes by Benjamin Appleby-Dean  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“When life ends it's like a book losing pages or a song skipping. It's abrupt and it doesn't make sense.”
Benjamin Appleby-Dean, The Stickman's Legacy

“Time goes faster when it's spent
On slowing steps to look behind
To let the spool of years unwind
And dream of all my yesterdays”
Benjamin Appleby-Dean, Cold Stone Secrecy: Twelve Poems

“When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty, I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”
C.S. Lewis, On Stories: And Other Essays on Literature

“Magic does that. It wastes you away. Once it grips you by the ear, the real world gets quieter and quieter, until you can hardly hear it at all.”
Catherynne M. Valente, Deathless

“The only thing that makes life possible is permanent, intolerable uncertainty: not knowing what comes next.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Left Hand of Darkness
