Rick Riordan, The Blood of Olympus

Laura Pritchett, Sky Bridge

Sara Wolf
“The view was, to say the least, incredible. And the feeling of it all - of being so small and insignificant - was a lot like the feeling I got when Burn and I would stand on the cliff in the mornings and watch the sun kiss the world awake.
I felt...unimportant. I felt light, and airy, and free. I felt like nothing mattered - not my grades, not my college future, not my awful spying on the Blackthorns - nothing. I'd done nothing wrong up here. I had no responsibilities up here - not to Dad, not to Mom, not even to myself. For a few minutes, I felt untouchable.
Nothing could get me in the sky, not even my problems. I watched the sun as I fell. So what, I thought, if Mom and Dad divorced? Would it really be the end of the world? This was the world - this huge thing below me, reduced to nothing more than toy-like dioramas of forests and towns. There were a hundred million problems waiting for me when I landed, but when you got high enough, all those problems seemed so small and insignificant. The sun didn't care about divorce. The sky didn't care about grades. No one cared, except me and the people in the below-world. I wasn’t a scholarshipper up here; I wasn’t a teacher’s pet, a wannabe psychologist, a girl who left her friends behind, or an attempted good-daughter. I
was just…me.”
Sara Wolf, Burn Before Reading

“In six years, this was not the first time they had found themselves in
such a compromising position but in six years, this was the first time it looked like she
wanted to compromise, compromise this friendship and meet him half-way.”
Jacqueline Francis - Wanting to Remember, Trying to Forget

Renée Vivien
“Friendship is more dangerous than love, since its roots are stronger and go deeper than the roots of love. The anguish of friendship is more bitter than the anguish of love. Certain souls love friendship as others love love; they suffer through friendship as others through love, They have in their lives only one friendship as others have but a single love. It is when they lose friendship that they despair hopelessly.”
Renée Vivien, A Woman Appeared to Me

Rebecca Wells
“Caro remembered how it was to lie so unself-consciously next to her best friends. Her aging body recalled the singular comfort of just being in bed next to Vivi's and Teensy's and Necie's bodies. It had been like no comfort she had ever taken from a man, not from her husband, or from the two lovers she'd had during her marriage. As she thought of her friends, she wished they could sprawl like that once more, their old-lady bodies touching, their varicosed legs thrown over one another's, toes touching, their scents mingling. The tribe, together again.”
Rebecca Wells

Jackie Castle
“DezPierre glowered up at Olden but graciously bowed as he introduced himself.
"At your service, father of Sir Tarek. I am DezPierre of the Okbold clan. Head liason of Jolly Orchard and caretaker of Miss Alyra of Belluvita. If you cannot treat my mistress with the respect she deserves, you will deal with my swift vengeance.”
Jackie Castle, Ignited: Book Five

“One's soul/character is divided into pieces and seeded in different people, which we are destined to find; find the piece of our puzzle in them, for our self to be complete.”

“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out”
Walter Winchell

Nicholas Sparks
“Friendship isn't about how long you know someone. It's about who walks into your life, says 'I'm here for you,' and then proves it.”
Nicholas Sparks, See Me

“True friendship is when you can allow and accept each other without conditions, ultimatums, expectations, demands or hidden agendas.”
Hazel Butterworth
