    Juliet Marillier
    “He would have told her - he would have said, it matters not if you are here or there, for I see you before me every moment. I see you in the light of the water, in the swaying of the young trees in the spring wind. I see you in the shadows of the great oaks, I hear your voice in the cry of the owl at night. You are the blood in my veins, and the beating of my heart. You are my first waking thought, and my last sigh before sleeping. You are - you are bone of my bone, and breath of my breath.”
    Juliet Marillier, Daughter of the Forest

    Arthur Hugh Clough
    “Ah yet, when all is thought and said,
    The heart still overrules the head;
    Still what we hope we must believe,
    And what is given us receive;

    Must still believe, for still we hope
    That in a world of larger scope,
    What here is faithfully begun
    Will be completed, not undone.

    My child, we still must think, when we
    That ampler life together see,
    Some true result will yet appear
    Of what we are, together, here.”
    Arthur Hugh Clough, The Poems of Arthur Hugh Clough

    Suzanne Collins
    “Deep in the meadow, hidden far away
    A cloak of leaves, a moonbeam ray
    Forget your woes and let your troubles lay
    And when it's morning again, they'll wash away
    Here it's safe, here it's warm
    Here the daisies guard you from every harm
    Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
    Here is the place where I love you.”

They were silly, you could say, and about love. He was always in his room writing those things, and never with people. I used to tell him, What good is all that love doing on paper? I said, Let love write on you for a little. But he was so stubborn. Or perhaps he was only timid.”
    Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

    Carl Sagan
    “What an astonishing thing a book is. It's a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you're inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic."

    [Cosmos, Part 11: The Persistence of Memory (1980)]”
    Carl Sagan, Cosmos
