Nenia Campbell

They would be irresistible.”
Nenia Campbell, Horrorscape

He brought his face toward mine. “You are to me.”

And somehow, against all reason, we were kissing. I closed my eyes, and the world around me faded.”
Richelle Mead, The Indigo Spell

Becca Fitzpatrick
“He was abominable...and the most alluring, tortured soul I'd ever met.”

“Oh, he did look like a deity – the perfect balance of danger and charm, he was at the same time fascinating and inaccessible, distant because of his demonstrated flawlessness, and possessing such strength of character that he was dismaying and at the same time utterly attractive in an enticing and forbidden way.”
Simona Panova, Nightmarish Sacrifice

Anna Godbersen

David Gerrold, A Matter for Men

Karl Lagerfeld
“Fashion is ephemeral, dangerous and unfair.”
Karl Lagerfeld

“The most dangerous people in the world are not the tiny minority instigating evil acts, but those who do the acts for them. For example, when the British invaded India, many Indians accepted to work for the British to kill off Indians who resisted their occupation. So in other words, many Indians were hired to kill other Indians on behalf of the enemy for a paycheck. Today, we have mercenaries in Africa, corporate armies from the western world, and unemployed men throughout the Middle East killing their own people - and people of other nations - for a paycheck. To act without a conscience, but for a paycheck, makes anyone a dangerous animal. The devil would be powerless if he couldn't entice people to do his work. So as long as money continues to seduce the hungry, the hopeless, the broken, the greedy, and the needy, there will always be war between brothers.”
Suzy Kassem

Larissa Ione
“Danger followed in his wake . . . followed, because it wouldn’t dare get in
his way.”
Larissa Ione, Pleasure Unbound

Nenia Campbell

Nenia Campbell, Fearscape

Criss Jami
“Seemingly minor yet persistent things penetrate the mind over time making it difficult to ever realize the impact; hence, though quite unfortunate, the most dangerous forms of corruption are those that are subtle and below the radar.”
Criss Jami, Salomé: In Every Inch In Every Mile

James Baldwin
“No one is more dangerous than he who imagines himself pure in heart: for his purity, by definition, is unassailable.”
James Baldwin, Nobody Knows My Name

Amit Kalantri
“The most dangerous irony is, people are angry with others because of their own incompetence.”
Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words

Madeleine L'Engle
“Two people whose opinion I respect told me that the word "Christian" would turn people off. This certainly says something about the state of Christianity today. I wouldn't mind if to be a Christian were accepted as being the dangerous thing which it is; I wouldn't mind if, when a group of Christians meet for bread and wine, we might well be interrupted and jailed for subversive activities; I wouldn't mind if, once again, we were being thrown to the lions. I do mind, desperately, that the word "Christian" means for so many people smugness, and piosity, and holier-than-thouness. Who today can recognize a Christian because of "how those Christians love one another?”
Madeleine L'Engle, A Circle of Quiet

Harlan Ellison
“It is not merely enough to love literature if one wishes to spend one's life as a writer. It is a dangerous undertaking on the most primitive level. For, it seems to me, the act of writing with serious intent involves enormous personal risk. It entails the ongoing courage for self-discovery. It means one will walk forever on the tightrope, with each new step presenting the possiblity of learning a truth about oneself that is too terrible to bear.”
Harlan Ellison

Shannon L. Alder
“It is not the homeless, mentally ill or extremely cunning people that we have to be afraid of. When someone loses everything that meant something to them is when people should get very afraid. A person that has nothing to lose is the scariest person on earth.”
Shannon L. Alder

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Keep your innocence and ignorance aside, and expose yourself to dangerous situations, and understand the deeper secrets of life.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Anne Bishop
“The Dimwit's Guide to the Female Mind might assist your efforts in understanding human females. But it must be pointed out that this subject can be a dangerous adventure and should be undertaken with extreme caution. After all, human males have been trying to understand their females for generations, and most of the time they come away from these encounters looking like someone stuck their tails into an electric socket.”
Anne Bishop, Marked in Flesh

Nenia Campbell
“You're like a half-tamed creature, still shy of the bridle. 'Except you enthrall me, never shall be free.' But freedom is an illusion, anyway.”
Nenia Campbell, Fearscape

Sophie Jordan
“Ironic. I'm here because of my inherent dangerousness, but it's my inherent politeness that makes me put up with this. With him.”
Sophie Jordan, Uninvited

J.K. Rowling
“They may not look dangerous, but if angered [bowtruckles] will gouge out human eyes with their fingers, which, as you can see, are very sharp and not at all desirable near the eyeballs.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

C.F.
“The deep woods can be very dangerous. Dangerous, dangerous, dangerous and weird. And weird weird.”
C.F., Powr Mastrs 3

Erin Forbes
“There are times when the unseen can be even more dangerous than what our eyes behold.”
Erin Forbes, Fire & Ice: The Elementals

Louis de Broglie
“Many scientists have tried to make determinism and complementarity the basis of conclusions that seem to me weak and dangerous; for instance, they have used Heisenberg's uncertainty principle to bolster up human free will, though his principle, which applies exclusively to the behavior of electrons and is the direct result of microphysical measurement techniques, has nothing to do with human freedom of choice. It is far safer and wiser that the physicist remain on the solid ground of theoretical physics itself and eschew the shifting sands of philosophic extrapolations.”
Louis de Broglie, Nouvelles perspectives en microphysique
