    J.R.R. Tolkien
    “All that is gold does not glitter,
    Not all those who wander are lost;
    The old that is strong does not wither,
    Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

    From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
    A light from the shadows shall spring;
    Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
    The crownless again shall be king.”
    J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

    Charlotte Brontë

    Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre

    Charlotte Brontë
    “Jane: Mr. Rochester, if ever I did a good deed in my life-if ever I thought a good thought-if ever I prayed a sincere and blameless prayer-if ever I wished a righteous wish-I am rewarded now. To be your wife is, for me, to be as happy as I can be on earth.
    Mr. Rochester: Because you delight in sacrifice.
    Jane: Sacrifice! What do I sacrifice? Famine for food, expectation for content. To be privileged to put my arms round what I value-to press my lips to what I love-to repose on what I trust: is that to make a sacrifice? If so, then certainly I delight in sacrifice.”
    Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre

    Henry David Thoreau
    “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms...”
    Henry David Thoreau

    Karen Marie Moning
    “Barrons was powerful, broodingly good-looking, insanely wealthy, frighteningly intelligent, and had exquisite taste, not to mention a hard body that emitted some kind of constant low-level charge. Bottom line: He was the stuff of heroes.

    And psychotic killers.”
    Karen Marie Moning, Faefever

    “Was he a good kisser, Ms. Lane?” Barrons asked, watching me carefully.
    I wiped my mouth with the back of my hand at the memory. “It was like being owned.”
    Some women like that.”
    Not me.”
    Perhaps it depends on the man doing the owning.”
    I doubt it. I couldn’t breathe with him kissing me.”
    One day you may kiss a man you can’t breathe without, and find breath is of little consequence.”
    Right, and one day my prince might come.”
    I doubt he’ll be a prince, Ms. Lane. Men rarely are.”
    Karen Marie Moning, Bloodfever

    “Never stray from your own kind, Jessen,” my mother would say, “or you could end up like Princess Morga, a slave and outcast to be abhorred.”

    The problem was, I’d never been a very obedient daughter. Never the one to do exactly as I was told. And fairy tales have no meaning when the stars align and Fortune spins her wheel, weaving her own story for your heart.”
    Juliette Cross, Soulfire

    J.R. Ward
    “I… What are you saying, Zsadist?" she stammered, even though she'd heard every word.

    He glanced back down at the pencil in his hand and then turned to the table. Flipping the spiral notebook to a new page, he bent way over and labored on top of the paper for quite a while. Then he ripped the sheet free.

    His hand was shaking as he held it out. "It's messy."

    Bella took the paper. In a child's uneven block letters there were three words: I LOVE YOU

    Her lips flattened tight as her eyes stung. The handwriting got wavy and then disappeared.
    "Maybe you can't read it," he said in a small voice. "I can do it over."
    She shook her head. "I can read it just fine. It's… beautiful."

    "I don't expect anything back. I mean… I know that you don't… feel that for me anymore. But I wanted you to know. It's important that you knew.”
    J.R. Ward, Lover Awakened
