    Heinrich Heine
    “Where they have burned books, they will end in burning human beings.”
    Heinrich Heine

    Emilie Autumn
    “Well, I’ve been a musician my whole life. When I was two, I would sing the theme from Star Wars in my crib; my mom taped it for proof. Then, when I was five, I asked for a violin. No one knew why I would want one, but my wish was granted and I ended up a classically trained fiddler by age 12. The only problem with that was, when you’re a classical violinist, everybody expects you to be satisfied with playing Tchaikovsky for the rest of your life, and saying you want to play jazz, rock, write songs, sing your songs, hook up your fiddle to a guitar amp, sleep with your 4-track recorder, mess around with synths, dress like Tinkerbell in combat boots, AND play Tchaikovsky is equivalent to spitting on the Pope.”
    Emilie Autumn

    Sarra Manning
    “I'd always thought that my awkwardness was a thin veil disguising the real me. The me that was funny and could write songs that touched people. The me that would one day find some beautiful, intelligent boy who'd recognize me as his soul mate. The me who was secretly pretty and stylish if only someone would lift the veil and see. But I was beginning to suspect that underneath the awkwardness there was just more awkwardness and not much else. And that would explain why I stood in a room full of people and felt like the loneliest girl in the world.”
    Sarra Manning, Guitar Girl

    Lucy Christopher
    “I made it," you said, gruffly, "for you."

    You shoved it onto my finger. It was roughly carved, shaped from a lump of something colourful and cold...a ring made entirely from a gemstone. It was beautiful. It glinted emerald greens and blood reds over my skin, and had tiny flecks of gold catching the light. I couldn't stop staring at it.

    "Why?" I asked.

    You didn't answer that. Instead you touched the ring gently and looked piercingly at me, unsaid questions in your eyes.”
    Lucy Christopher, Stolen: A Letter to My Captor

    Lucy Christopher
    “I ate the roll, and forced down some more sparkling wine. When your eyes closed against the sun again, and I had nothing else to look at I glanced quickly at your chest, curious, really. I'd only seen chests like that in magazines. I wondered if that's how you'd got all your money . . . modeling. I looked down at my stomach. I grabbed at it, seeing how much fat I could lift up in a roll.

    "Don't worry," you said, one eye open again like a crocodile, watching me. "You're beautiful." You tipped your head back again "Beautiful," you murmured. "Perfect."

    "You wouldn't know. You're built like some sort of supermodel." I bit my lip, wishing I hadn't complimented you like that. "Or a stripper," I added. "Prostitute."

    "I wouldn't want you to think I'm repulsive," you said, half smiling.

    "Too late."

    You opened your other eye to squint at me. "Will you ever give me a break?”
    Lucy Christopher, Stolen: A Letter to My Captor

    Lucy Christopher
    “Those blue, blue eyes, icy
    blue, looking back at me as if I could
    warm them up. They’re
    pretty powerful, you know, those eyes, pretty beautiful, too.”
    Lucy Christopher, Stolen: A Letter to My Captor

    Lucy Christopher
    “I can't save you like that Ty.
    What you did to me wasn't this brilliant thing, like you think it was. You took me away from everything - my parents, my friends, my life. You took me to the sand and the heat, the dirt and isolation. And you expected me to love you. And that's the hardest bit. Because I did, or at least, I loved something out there.
    But I hated you too. I can't forget that.”
    Lucy Christopher, Stolen: A Letter to My Captor

    Lucy Christopher
    “This be OK?' I asked, innocently.
    'You want me to have no skin left?' You rolled your eyes.
    Actually, don't answer that one.”
    Lucy Christopher, Stolen: A Letter to My Captor

    “If there'd been an astronaut on the moon right then, I'm sure I could have seen him. Perhaps he could have looked down and seen me too... the only one who could.”
