E.A. Bucchianeri
“An acquaintance merely enjoys your company, a fair-weather companion flatters when all is well, a true friend has your best interests at heart and the pluck to tell you what you need to hear.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly,

Dean Koontz
“Dogs, lives are short, too short, but you know that going in. You know the pain is coming, you're going to lose a dog, and there's going to be great anguish, so you live fully in the moment with her, never fail to share her joy or delight in her innocence, because you can't support the illusion that a dog can be your lifelong companion. There's such beauty in the hard honesty of that, in accepting and giving love while always aware that it comes with an unbearable price. Maybe loving dogs is a way we do penance for all the other illusions we allow ourselves and the mistakes we make because of those illusions.”
Dean Koontz, The Darkest Evening of the Year

Michael Bassey Johnson
“People will walk in and walk out of your life, but the one whose footstep made a long lasting impression is the one you should never allow to walk out.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Paulo Coelho
“Death is our constant companion, and it is death that gives each person's life its true meaning.”
Paulo Coelho, The Pilgrimage

Russell T. Davies
“In the end I sort of though we created a companion who was so alive and dynamic and so wedded to the doctor that you’d need a whole universe to contain her in. The only way to get rid of her is to send her into a parallel world from which she can never return; otherwise she would stay with the doctor forever.”
Russell T. Davies

Erik Pevernagie
“Reality may not always be a happy companion. If we learn to trust ourselves and fully put through our paces, we can discover something like a winner's soul ignoring itself and passing with flying colors. The future can be an open space with a range of surprises. ("What after bowling alone?" )”
Erik Pevernagie

Kevin Ansbro
“Though soulmates aren't looking for you, they will find you.”
Kevin Ansbro

Vera Nazarian
“Snowflakes swirl down gently in the deep blue haze beyond the window. The outside world is a dream.

Inside, the fireplace is brightly lit, and the Yule log crackles with orange and crimson sparks.

There’s a steaming mug in your hands, warming your fingers.

There’s a friend seated across from you in the cozy chair, warming your heart.

There is mystery unfolding.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

“Part of me wanted this more than anything else in the world—to have someone to hang out with, be like everyone else for a while. The rest of me screamed to get the hell out of there, not to get sucked in.”
Rachel Ward, Numbers

Ranulph Fiennes
“It is a truism to say that the dog is largely what his master makes of him: he can be savage and dangerous, untrustworthy, cringing and fearful; or he can be faithful and loyal, courageous and the best of companions and allies.”
Ranulph Fiennes

Helen Fox
“The man was staring directly at him now, a curious expression on his face, half smiling, half quizzical. Instantly Eager had a sense of certainty far deeper than anything he had experienced so far. "I have it too!" he exclaimed. "I am a part of this Earth, aren't I? Just like the birds and the trees and the people - I am."
"Om." said his companion.
Unseen by them, a blossom fell.”
Helen Fox

“It is not easy to be a man with growing feminism. It is ideal if women who are very successful in their careers can find a man to complement their strengths and work as a team. I think we should interview the men behind all the successful women, and find out the qualities of good men behind successful women. “Behind every successful woman is a great man.” Finding the right companion on the onset is like striking the jackpot in life.”
Fanny Lai

Jayita Bhattacharjee
“Sometimes allowing another to enter your soul and feel your feeling is the beginning of a relatedness. Sometimes opening the door and quivering in another's ache is the beginning of a companionship.....”
Jayita Bhattacharjee

Emiko Jean
“Good Lord, your dog stinks."
I cuddle against Tamagotchi close to my chest. "It's not his fault." My terrier mix has a rare glandular condition for which there is no cure or medication. He also has a you're-so-ugly-you're-cute face and a gross fetish for his own feet. He sucks his toes.
Pretty sure I was put on this earth to love this canine.”
Emiko Jean, Tokyo Ever After

“The Saviour, Christ Jesus is my sacred companion.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

Yuval Noah Harari
“[once artificial intelligence goes beyond human level intelligence], we will become intolerable to humans who don't understand us the way computers understand us”
Yuval Noah Harari

Mary Lanza
“Acceptance is a beautiful companion
Without it, we would all be lonely.”
Mary Lanza, Losing the Boomer Blues

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Most people usually start a conversation when they are sick and tired of not having something to say.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

“These are the best companions
for an intelligent woman:
a good book and a good glass of wine.”
Augusto Branco

Charles Dickens
“I had not been mistaken in my fancy that there was a simple dignity in him. The fashion of his dress could no more come in its way when he spoke these words, that it could come in its way in Heaven. He touched me gently on the forehead, and went out. As soon as I could recover myself sufficiently, I hurried out after him and looked for him in the neighbouring streets; but he was gone.”
Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

“If you have loyal companion, that is all there is in this life.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

Stewart Stafford
“Samaritan's Path by Stewart Stafford

On a solo trek on a dusty road,
A volunteer picked up my load,
Heavy things of weight and idea,
Hoisted aloft, a relaxing panacea.

We ran the clock down without ennui,
With songs, jokes, and inflated history,
Scenery and animals to comment upon,
Stones kicked as the sun still shone.

In dusk's bowing light, a reticent parting,
A trip over, happy memories restarting,
With a last handshake, wave, and smile,
We headed for home on the closing mile.

Louisa Morgan
“I needed the puppy. More to the point, I needed that puppy. Willow kept me connected to the world when I was tempted to give up on it. She seemed to know what I was thinking or was about to think. She followed me everywhere, her tail eager to wag, her pink tongue quick to loll with doggy laughter. If I went out without her, she knew the moment I turned for home, and waited by the door for me to appear. She filled the empty spaces of my life with her bright spirit and lively presence. I came to feel that she reflected me, in an uncanny way, as if she were the canine version of myself.”
Louisa Morgan, The Witch's Kind

Arto Paasilinna
“When, that evening, Vatanen slowly ski’d back from Vittumainen Ghyll to Laahkima Gorge, accompanied by his hare, he no longer thought about Kaartinen’s strange world. There was a half-moon, and the stars were glimmering faintly in the frozen evening. He had his own world, this one, and it was fine to be here, living alone in one’s own way. The hare ambled silently along the trail ahead of the skier, like a pathfinder. Vatanen sang to it.”
Arto Paasilinna, The Year of the Hare

Louisa Morgan
“Robbie said he never saw a horse take so easily to a rider, but Annis wasn't surprised. Bits always understood what she wanted, from a slow walk to a trot, from a canter to a gallop. He was as eager as she for their more daring rides, the ones they made when no one could see them. He loved to run, and they both loved jumping. He sailed effortlessly over fallen trees, mane and tail rippling. He popped over rows of shrubs as easily as a leaping deer, making Annis feel as if she could fly.”
Louisa Morgan, The Age of Witches

Heather Fawcett
“Shadow continues his search outside for a door to the mortal realm. I have faith in him, my oldest, most loyal friend---if there is a way out, he will find it.”
Heather Fawcett, Emily Wilde's Encyclopaedia of Faeries

“We are, What We are WITH. ”

“To know Christ is to have an extraordinary companion”
Lailah Gifty Akita

Elisa Rae
“Was this mark in the service of a magus?”
“Yes.” She frowned. “My master, Warlord Grimore, does all he can to oppose the magus plague.”
“Grimore, you say?” Troy’s gaze slid over to me. “I thought you called her companion.”
“She is.”
She tensed at Troy’s tone. “I misspoke. Grimore is my former master. Master Whispier is now my master.”
“Companion,” I corrected. She lifted her face and met my gaze across the table. “You are my companion, and I am yours. We are equals in this bond.”
The depths of her dark eyes flashed with sudden, intense emotion. Troy moved to speak, but I lifted my hand to stop him. “You wish to say something, Avril?”
“There is nothing equal about our bond. I agreed to spend time in your presence. What have I received in return?”
“Safety, security, food, rest—”
“And no freedom.”
“Hardly. You can come and go as you please. Just return by nightfall.” I purposefully picked up my glass with a careful movement. “I told you that you were free to do anything short of attacking me.”
A biscuit bounced off my head with such force that it rebounded across the room and struck the far wall.”
Elisa Rae, The Elven Spymaster's Thief

Nozer Kanga
“The soul grows spiritually when we follow, act on, and implement the higher voice of our conscience, which guides us in our day-to-day lives, every second and every minute. It is our constant companion throughout our lives and linked to us for eternity.”
