Cassandra Clare
“You know," Cecily said, "you really didn't have to throw that man through the window."
"He wasn't a man," Gabriel said, scowling. "He was an Unseelie Court faerie. One of the nasty ones."
"Is that why you chased him down the street?"
"He had no business showing images like that to a lady," Gabriel muttered, though it had to be admitted that the lady in question had hardly turned a hair, and seemed more annoyed with Gabriel for his reaction than impressed by his chivalry.
"And I do think it was excessive to hurl him into the canal."
"He'll float."
The corners of Cecily's mouth twitched. "It was very wrong.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess

Koren Zailckas
“Even years from now, once I've stopped drinking, I will never stop trusting extremes. I will always believe that anything worth having is worth having in excess. The good things are worth hoarding until you have a cookie-fat ass, sex-aching loins, joy that fires through you like popping popcorn, or love, the weakness at the sight of some boy who makes your chest ache like indigestion. If it's good for you, it ought to be good for you in any amount, and you should track down every available bit of it. And if it's toxic, if it turns your liver into a hard little rock of scar tissue, or curls your memory at the edges like something burned in a fire, or makes your stomach flop, or your mind ache, or your personality contorted, you shouldn't buy into the bullshit about temperance.”
Koren Zailckas, Smashed: Story of a Drunken Girlhood

“Excessive want is a form of desperation and a declaration of lack.”
Bryant McGill, Simple Reminders: Inspiration for Living Your Best Life

“Anything done in excess becomes hazardous, not only to the entity, but also to a personage; in that it brings untoward behavior to scrutiny in the hoax of trying to reach out. Even ‘l love you’ mislay the poise of oneness when said over and over again.”

“How can the creation challenge and control the Creator? Oh mortal man, know that there is an immortal God with an immortal power!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Down close to certain flowers
all excesses are sufficiencies”
David Giannini
