“Our enemy is fear. Blinding, reason-killing fear. Fear consumes the truth and poisons all the evidence, leading us to false assumptions and irrational conclusions.”
Rick Yancey, The Monstrumologist

“She’d been killed by her own personal assistant, news that Charlotte believed had come as a terrible shock to everyone in the city except the thousands of other personal assistants who dreamed, daily, of doing the same thing.”
Brenda Cullerton, The Craigslist Murders

“The trick to being undead, much like being monogamous, is keeping everything fresh.”
Tonia Brown, Lucky Stiff

Ann Brashares
“Maybe you think you’ll be entitled to more happiness later by forgoing all of it now, but it doesn’t work that way. Happiness takes as much practice as unhappiness does. It’s by living that you live more. By waiting you wait more. Every waiting day makes your life a little less. Every lonely day makes you a little smaller. Every day you put off your life makes you less capable of living it.”
Ann Brashares, Sisterhood Everlasting

“We must learn from our struggles.”
Roger Thurow, The Last Hunger Season: A Year in an African Farm Community on the Brink of Change
