Hermann Hesse
“I am a star in the firmament
that observe the world, despises the world
and consumed in its heat.

I am the sea by night in a storm
the sea shouting that accumulates new sins
and to the ancient makes recompense.

I am exiled from your world
of pride polite, by pride defrauded,
I am the king without crown.

I am the passion without words
without stones of the hearth, without weapons in the war,
is my same force that make me sick”
Hermann Hesse

Fernando Alegría
“I realized that a new phase of exile was beginning, that from now on there would be other periods, all different, each with its own anxieties, all shattering and overwhelming, and that I would be changing too, passing from one crisis to the next until I reached the moment of truth, unique and definitive — the day on which I would either stop being an exile and return home, or unavoidably, with sadness and resignation, become an immigrant.”
Fernando Alegria

“I exile Jude Duarte to the mortal world. Until and unless she is pardoned by the crown, let her not step one foot in Faerie or forfeit her life.'

'I gasp. 'But you can't do that!'

He looks at me for a long moment, but his gaze is mild, as though he's expecting me to be fine with exile. As though I am nothing more than one of his petitioners. As though I am nothing at all. 'Of course I can,' he replies.
...
Our eyes meet, and the odd smile on his face is clearly meant for me. I remember what it was to hate him with the whole of my heart, but I've remembered too late.”
Holly Black, The Wicked King

Holly Black
“...she speculates about all the aspects of the mortal world she's going to have to explain to Dad. 'Like cell phones,' she says. 'Or self-checkout in the grocery store. Oh, this is going to be amazing. Seriously, his exile is the best present you ever got me.'

'You know that he's going to be so bored that he's going to try to micromanage your life,' Taryn says. 'Or plan your invasion of a neighbouring apartment building.'

At that, Vivi stops smiling.

It makes Oak giggle, though.”
Holly Black, The Queen of Nothing
