“He said focus. The word focus. I hear angels singing. Everything goes dark except for a light that beams down on Sean.

Something I see every day but never really see because it's been there forever. Since the first day of third grade.

Cornelia Funke
“Der Name klang immer noch so vertraut. Vermutlich hatte sie ihn öfter ausgesprochen, als den ihres Sohnes. Warum schlug ihr albernes Herz schneller? Hatte es schon vergessen, wie viel Schmerz diese Besucherin ihm bereitet hatte? Ihr Vater hatte recht. Das Herz war ein schwaches, wandelbares Ding, auf nichts als Liebe aus und nichts war verhängnisvoller, als es zu seinem Meister zu machen. Der Verstand musste der Meister sein. Er tröstete über Narrenheiten des Herzens hinweg, fand Spottlieder für die Liebe, verhöhnte sie als eine Laune der Natur, vergänglich wie Blüten. Warum nur folgte sie dennoch immer wieder ihrem Herzen?”
Cornelia Funke, Inkdeath
