“Damn them all, my love. Your future is your own. Destiny is for the weak. The strong make their own futures, and you were born with a sword for a spine.”
R.L. Martinez, Beneath the Skin

“You hold a lioness in your arms, little witch. Someone’s sky; another’s earth; and a third’s star. Blood, skin, and breath in one.”
R.L. Martinez, Beneath the Skin

“...politics is a game every king must play and secrets are the best defense we have.”
R.L. Martinez, Beneath the Skin

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Don't let the bastards grind you down.”
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
Ernest Hemingway

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”
Stephen King
