Ashly Lorenzana
“It's okay to disagree with the thoughts or opinions expressed by other people. That doesn't give you the right to deny any sense they might make. Nor does it give you a right to accuse someone of poorly expressing their beliefs just because you don't like what they are saying. Learn to recognize good writing when you read it, even if it means overcoming your pride and opening your mind beyond what is comfortable.”
Ashly Lorenzana

Rachel Caine, Glass Houses

Gregory Maguire
“They'd never been lovers, of course, not in the physical sense. But they'd been lovers as most of us manage, loving through expressions and gestures and the palm set softly upon the bruise at the necessary moment. Lovers by inclination rather than by lust. Lovers, that is, by love.”
Gregory Maguire, Out of Oz

“That was the thing about her. When you told her about an incident where you so badly screwed up, half expecting her to laugh at you in amusement, half anticipating a smirk of disgust, she would hardly express her pity or maybe she did express what she felt, for she would just nod her head, gesturing you to go on... As if it's normal... As if you're normal.”
Sanhita Baruah

What word or expression do you most overuse? Re-reading a collection of my stuff, I was rather startled to find that it was 'perhaps.”
Christopher Hitchens, Hitch 22: A Memoir

Amaka Imani Nkosazana
“Do not allow your happiness to be controlled by the thoughts of others. People are happy for you one minute and then the next they are looking down their noses at you.

Amaka Imani Nkosazana, Heart Crush

(meltdown of oceanic kisses)
when the purple light
whispers to the moon
in silent moonlit clarity”

You may not be where you want to be. But if you continue pushing forward and striving at a steady pace, you'll get there. All things take time.”
Amaka Imani Nkosazana, Sweet Destiny

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“The only thing I can recall is that it rained all day and all night, and that when I asked my father whether heaven was crying, he couldn't bring himself to reply. Six years later my mother's absence remained in the air around us, a deafening silence that I had not yet learned to stifle with words.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

“I'm not the first one to point out that George Lucas used plastic helmets to cover the faces of the storm troopers in Star Wars, in order to make them more inhuman, as their eyes and faces were not visible. In our times, we are getting a more modern version of Lucas's Stormtroopers, thanks to the popular nerve toxin Botox. This is something more and more people who are past their middle age are happily injecting into themselves - more specifically, into their faces. Botox causes local paralysis (it is a nerve toxin, after all), which smoothes out wrinkles. Unfortunately, it also means you can no longer use some of your facial muscles, as you are paralyzed. This means you're not only getting the skin of a Barbie doll, you're getting its range of facial expressions too.”
Henrik Fexeus, The Art of Reading Minds

“Carrie Underwood, take the wheel-I was not okay.”
Goldy Moldavsky, Kill the Boy Band

Paige Shelton
“Good gravy on biscuits, girlfriend, you are in the middle of more messes than a platter of scrambled eggs. What's going on? Are the planets aligned funny? Or is that unaligned? Shoot, I have no idea. But I need to know what's going on. You and I will be going out for coffee in about thirty seconds.”
Paige Shelton, Bookman Dead Style

“Landscapes, even when their general type is similar, are capable of as many expressions as the same type of human face, and, without our being able fully to tell why, affect our spirits as we look at them with as many moods and meanings.”
William Hurrell Mallock, In An Enchanted Island: Or A Winter's Retreat In Cyprus
