J.M. Barrie
“Stars are beautiful, but they must not take an active part in anything, they must just look on forever. It is a punishment put on them for something they did so long ago that no star now knows what it was.”
J.M. Barrie

Junot Díaz
“That’s life for you. All the happiness you gather to yourself, it will sweep away like it’s nothing. If you ask me I don’t think there are any such things as curses. I think there is only life. That’s enough.”
Junot Díaz, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

Lois McMaster Bujold
“The gods' most savage curses come upon us as answers to our own prayers. Prayer is a dangerous business.”
Lois McMaster Bujold, The Curse of Chalion

Pat Frayne
“Favorite Quotations.
I speak my mind because it hurts to bite my tongue.
The worth of a book is measured by what you carry away from it.
It's not over till it's over.
Imagination is everything.
All life is an experiment.
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls the butterfly.”
Pat Frayne, Tales of Topaz the Conjure Cat: Part I Topaz and the Evil Wizard & Part II Topaz and the Plum-Gista Stone

J.K. Rowling
Moody jerked his wand, and the spider rose onto two of its hind legs and went into what was unmistakably a tap dance.
Everyone was laughing — everyone except Moody.
“Think it’s funny, do you?” he growled. “You’d like it, would you, if I did it to you?”
The laughter died away almost instantly.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Nicholas A. Basbanes
“For him that stealeth, or borroweth and returneth not, this book from its owner,
Let it change into a serpent in his hand and rend him.
Let him be struck with palsy and all his members blasted.
Let him languish in pain crying out for mercy,
Let there be no surcease to his agony till he sink in dissolution.
Let bookworms gnaw his entrails in token of the worm that dieth not.
When at last he goeth to his final punishment,
Let the flames of Hell consume him forever.
[attributed to the Monastery of San Pedro in Barcelona, Spain]”
Nicholas A. Basbanes, A Gentle Madness: Bibliophiles, Bibliomanes, and the Eternal Passion for Books

“Seriously, who curses you with their dying breath and says, I hope your eye twitches!”
Rick Riordan

“Some of the best things that have ever happened to us wouldn’t have happened to us, if it weren’t for some of the worst things that have ever happened to us.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Louis Sachar
“A lot of people don't believe in curses.
A lot of people don't believe in yellow-spotted lizards either, but if one bites you, it doesn't make a difference whether you believe in it or not.”
Louis Sachar, Holes

Brandon Sanderson, Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians

Gary D. Schmidt
“A southwest blow on ye and blister you all o'er!'
'The red plague rid you!'
'Toads, beetles, bats, light on you!'
'As wicked dew as e'er my mother brushed with raven's feather from unwholesome fen drop on you.'
'Strange stuff'
'Thou jesting monkey thou'
'Apes with foreheads villainous low'
'Pied ninny'
'Blind mole...'
-The Caliban Curses”
Gary D. Schmidt, The Wednesday Wars

Christopher Hitchens
“One notorious apikoros named Hiwa al-Balkhi, writing in ninth-century Persia, offered two hundred awkward questions to the faithful. He drew upon himself the usual thunderous curses—'may his name be forgotten, may his bones be worn to nothing'—along with detailed refutations and denunciations by Abraham ibn Ezra and others. These exciting anathemas, of course, ensured that his worrying 'questions' would remain current for as long as the Orthodox commentaries would be read. In this way, rather as when Maimonides says that the Messiah will come but that 'he may tarry,' Jewishness contrives irony at its own expense. If there is one characteristic of Jews that I admire, it is that irony is seldom if ever wasted on them.”
Christopher Hitchens, Hitch 22: A Memoir

Lawren Leo
“Jagged needle, wicked lies
From under the skin, pluck evil eyes.
Destiny change from pain and cold
Now that you pay in blood and soul.”
Lawren Leo, Love's Shadow: Nine Crooked Paths

Zelda Gin
“(fairy tale).
i wanna tell you a joke
but it will be like the frog finds the princess
says she's not enough
then jumps out of window
i wanna show you
a bit of snow on fingertips
so it will speak why the beauty is not for the ugly
and dwarves cannot run after white horse
i wanna tell you
how much a kiss costs
that sways both lives away
so that you may
remain us.
but you see, fairy tales start with curses
and so do we.”
Zelda Gin

Tana French
“If I believed in curses, I would believe that this is mine: when it matters most, in the moments when I know with the greatest clarity exactly what needs to be done, everything I say comes out wrong.”
Tana French, Broken Harbour

Ursula K. Le Guin
“I bid your voice be dumb until the day you find a word worth speaking.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Farthest Shore

Melika Dannese Lux
“ 'I’ve seen its other side. I know what lives here, what’s been slumbering for so long.”
 A hollow pit opened up where Roger’s heart was supposed to be. “How would you know that?”
 “I woke it up.”
Melika Dannese Lux, Deadmarsh Fey

“Hentzau saw the Jade Goyl just as clearly as the Fairy had in her dreams. The pale green stone ran through his human skin like a promise.”
Cornelia Funke, Reckless

Bobby F. Kimbrough Jr.
“Never speak ill against someone else. You can't know what life holds for you. The ill you speak against someone else may find you sooner than you think. Speak blessings not curses. It's what I told my son. It's what I'm telling you.”
Bobby F. Kimbrough Jr.

Lailah Gifty Akita
“GOD can turn every curse into a blessings.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

Anupama Garg, The Tantric Curse

Mehmet Murat ildan

Tim Westover
“Pharaoh’s Flour promises the full fidelity of your husband and the eternal good behavior of your children—not only because the delicacies that you create with it can never be forgotten, but also because Pharaoh’s Flour bakes into every cake and pie the ancient spells and curses with which the pharaohs guarded their undisturbed homes and descendants into Eternity. And the ancient spells and curses, once guarded by the wise and wealthy, are now available in your kitchen. Pharaoh’s Flour!”
Tim Westover, Auraria

Astrid Lindgren
“I'm going to bed now, Lovis! Not to sleep. But to think and to curse, and woe better anyone who disturbs me!”
Astrid Lindgren, Ronia, the Robber's Daughter

“Magic is not always formed from words, from cauldrons brewing sides or black cats strolling down dark alleys. Some curses are manifested from desire or injustice.”
Shea Ernshaw, The Wicked Deep

Mindy Mejia
“Curses. Jesus. It took all kinds. There wasn't anything to a curse but words. Just like blessings and prayers and all the rest of it. People used words to try to change what they should be changing with their own two hands. And if the problem was too big to fix, no words called up into the air would make a lick of difference.”
Mindy Mejia, Everything You Want Me to Be
