“I should have" is one of the most tragic phrases in the English language. Live while you can.”
Michael A. McLellan

“Break the rules; there are no boundaries.
Conformity strangles the spirit.”
Michael A. McLellan

“You go to hell!” the old man spat. “Yes yes, if such a place exists, I will surely go there someday.”
Michael A. McLellan, After and Again

“A sickness known as hate; not a virus, not a microbe, not a germ - but a sickness nonetheless, highly contagious, deadly in its effects. Don't look for it in the Twilight Zone - look for it in a mirror. Look for it before the light goes out altogether.”
Rod Serling

“There was a piece of paper crumpled in the tight fist of the man. Porter opened the
fingers carefully and extracted the paper. On it, in a shaky script, were the words: Tell
them I killed the kid.”
Sarah Margolis Pearce, The Promise of Fate

“I understood then, with absolute certainty, that the
ability of the horse to sense emotion, energy and spirit is
beyond what most of the human world realises. This is why
their impact on us can be so instant, so consistently
positive, so transformational.”
Pam Billinge, The Spell of the Horse

“If I could be half the person my dog is, I would be twice the human I am.”
Charles Yu, How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe
