“I tried to drown my sorrows, but the bastards learned how to swim.’ ” “She said you were funny.”
Carole Johnstone, Mirrorland

“If a member of this tribe did something wrong, got caught doing something wrong, or even just thought they’d done something—anything, you know, from telling a lie to committing a murder—this tribe, this entire tribe, would take them into the center of their village, and they would form this circle around them, so tight they couldn’t escape, couldn’t hide. And then they would tell that person everything that was good about them. Every good thing they’d ever done. Every good thing they’d ever been. Over and over. And they wouldn’t stop. Not until that person heard them. Believed them.”
Carole Johnstone, Mirrorland

“When you compare the sorrows of real life to the pleasures of the imaginary one, you will never want to live again, only to dream for ever. The Count of Monte Cristo Alexandre Dumas”
Carole Johnstone, Mirrorland
