“At the edge of the pit, she launches herself into the air: Jane of the Jungle, the Human Volleyball, Centrifugal Force Girl. For four seconds, she flies. And of those four seconds, she only screams in terror for three.”
Rachel Sharp, The Big Book of Post-Collapse Fun

“In the weeks that followed, the girl learned about the many forms love could take. The Match Sticks made it clear that true love would not be defined by traditions or rules. One time, a middle-aged woman’s match even split in two to lead her to both her loves. And only a few days later, a farmer was tricked into taking a Match Stick by his wife. When it pointed at his best friend, she exclaimed: "See? I told you so! Now go kiss him and bring him over for dinner!”
Rachel Sharp, Unburied Fables

“Possibly this is some demonstration of how amazing the human brain is, adjusting and readjusting reality, plugging up potential crazy with a handy coping mechanism. As for myself, I think it demonstrates that the human brain is made of recycled monkey bits and pure, unadulterated stupid.”
Rachel Sharp, The Big Book of Post-Collapse Fun

“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
Madeleine L'Engle

“Substitute 'damn' every time you're inclined to write 'very;' your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.”
Mark Twain

“You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write.”
Saul Bellow

“One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.”
Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums

“Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.”
Anton Chekhov
