Emily Munro has been crafting stories ever since she wrote her first chapter book in first grade and hasn't stopped since. So she’s pretty sure she’ll get the hang of this whole writing thing eventually. In the meantime she reads anything that will sit still long enough, knits socks and drinks far too much tea. She can be found scribbling away in Brooklyn when she’s not fulfilling her other lifelong-dream, working in a Manhattan museum.

“But I should not have to explain to you how important it is for science and simplicity to coexist. One must not fear to be a little child again, when times of wonder are at hand.”
Jody Lynn Nye, Human for a Day

Patrick Rothfuss
“Perhaps the greatest faculty our minds possess is the ability to cope with pain. Classic thinking teaches us of the four doors of the mind, which everyone moves through according to their need.

First is the door of sleep. Sleep offers us a retreat from the world and all its pain. Sleep marks passing time, giving us distance from the things that have hurt us. When a person is wounded they will often fall unconscious. Similarly, someone who hears traumatic news will often swoon or faint. This is the mind's way of protecting itself from pain by stepping through the first door.

Second is the door of forgetting. Some wounds are too deep to heal, or too deep to heal quickly. In addition, many memories are simply painful, and there is no healing to be done. The saying 'time heals all wounds' is false. Time heals most wounds. The rest are hidden behind this door.

Third is the door of madness. There are times when the mind is dealt such a blow it hides itself in insanity. While this may not seem beneficial, it is. There are times when reality is nothing but pain, and to escape that pain the mind must leave reality behind.

Last is the door of death. The final resort. Nothing can hurt us after we are dead, or so we have been told.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

Brandon Sanderson
“When did you get so peppy?” she shouted.
“Ever since I assumed I was dead, then I suddenly wasn't.”
“Then remind me to try to kill you once in a while,” she snapped. “If I succeed, it will make me feel better, and if I fail, it will make you feel better. Everyone wins!”
Brandon Sanderson, Words of Radiance

Ilona Andrews
“It's my uniform. Everyone in my company wears it."
"It's hideous."

Rose felt her hackles rise. The neon green uniform was hideous, but
she didn't appreciate him pointing it out. She opened her mouth.

"Yet despite it, you look lovely," he said.

"Flattery will get you nowhere," she told him.

"It's not flattery," he said coldly. "Flattery requires exaggeration.
I'm merely stating a fact. You're a beautiful woman wearing an ugly
sack of unnatural color.”
Ilona Andrews, On the Edge

Brandon Sanderson
“As I fear not a child with a weapon he cannot lift, I will never fear the mind of a man who does not think.”
Brandon Sanderson, Words of Radiance
