“In case you think I’m not a true daughter of Aphrodite,” Piper said, “don’t even look at Jason Grace. He may not know it yet, but he’s mine. If you even try to make a move, I will load you into a catapult and shoot you across Long Island Sound.”
Drew turned around so fast, she ran into the doorframe. Then she was gone.”
Rick Riordan, The Lost Hero

“Shut up, me,” Leo said aloud.
“What?” Piper asked.
“Nothing,” he said. “Long night. I think I’m hallucinating. It’s cool.”
Sitting in front, Leo couldn’t see their faces, but he assumed from their silence that his friends were not pleased to have a sleepless, hallucinating dragon driver.
“Just joking.” Leo decided it might be good to change the subject.”

John Piper
“Have you ever wondered what it feels like to have a love for the lost? This is a term we use as part of our Christian jargon. Many believers search their hearts in condemnation, looking for the arrival of some feeling of benevolence that will propel them into bold evangelism. It will never happen. It is impossible to love “the lost”. You can’t feel deeply for an abstraction or a concept. You would find it impossible to love deeply an unfamiliar individual portrayed in a photograph, let alone a nation or a race or something as vague as “all lost people”.

Don’t wait for a feeling or love in order to share Christ with a stranger. You already love your heavenly Father, and you know that this stranger is created by Him, but separated from Him, so take those first steps in evangelism because you love God. It is not primarily out of compassion for humanity that we share our faith or pray for the lost; it is first of all, love for God.”
John Piper

Rick Riordan

Antony John
“COOL·NESS [KOOL-NIS] -noun
CATCHING your mom gazing at the crazy crowd like she finally gets it
WATCHING your dad head-banging like he’s Finn’s twin brother
LEARNING that your new friends Tash and Kallie are a thousand times more complicated than you realized, and loving them for it
FEELING every one of your boyfriend’s pounding drumbeats, and thinking it’s the most romantic music ever written
REALIZING you’re completely unique . . . even in a crowd”
Antony John, Five Flavors of Dumb

Fisher Amelie
“Ask yourself something. Have you ever thought about why guys want you gone the next day? It’s not because they’ve got things to do, though I’m sure there are a few assholes who think like that, either because they repeated the folly so often they learned to bury the guilt or because they didn’t have a conscience to begin with but, truthfully, it’s because they can’t stand to look at the reason they feel a hole in their chest. They don’t like reminders of who helped put that sick feeling in the pits of their stomachs. As long as they had a decent mama, the guilt is always substantial. Always. If they say differently, they’re liars." - Spencer Blackwell, GREED”
Fisher Amelie, Greed

Brent Weeks

John Piper
“The "war" is being fought along the line between sin and righteousness in every family. It is being fought along the line between truth and falsehood in every school... Between justice and injustice in every legislature... Between integrity and corruption in every office... Between love and hate in every ethnic group... Between pride and humility in every sport... Between the beautiful and the ugly in every art... Between right doctrine and wrong doctrine in every church... Between sloth and diligence between coffee breaks. It is not a waste to fight the battle for truth and faith and love on any of these fronts.”
John Piper, Don't Waste Your Life

Rick Riordan
“Being a hero doesn't mean you're invincible. It just means that you're brave enough to stand up and do what's needed.
And if I don't know what's needed?
That's what your friends are for. We've all got different strengths. Together, we'll figure it out.”
Rick Riordan, The Mark of Athena

Cornelia Funke

Melina Marchetta
“Worse still, he doesn’t know how to follow the piper anymore because it’s a path Tom has lost faith in.
And the piper knows it. Tom can see it in his father’s eyes now. And the more he stares, the clearer it becomes.”
Melina Marchetta, The Piper's Son

Rick Riordan
“The thing about being everyone's source of strenght: sometimes you forget that you need to draw strenght from others.”
Rick Riordan, The Blood of Olympus

Pauline Fisk
“Bonnie saw ropes hanging loose, poles falling away, tree-tops sinking beneath her. As they rose, the sun rose with them. Its warmth turned the dark skin of the fiery balloon midnight blue. They flew straight up. Above them, the sweet, clear music of the lonely pipe called to them. Then the smooth sky puckered into cloth-of-blue and drew aside. They passed straight through...”
Pauline Fisk, Midnight Blue

Piper Lawson
“Endings always suck, and I can’t decide which are worse. The kind where you’re ripped apart, where nothing but evil forces could keep you separated? Or the kind that happens when you’re an adult and you have to walk away on your own steam.”
Piper Lawson, Wicked Girl

“When it is pleasant enough – or at minimum if remaining yet hopeful – one's unfolding fate might be received as effortlessly as a slice of freshly baked Dutch apple pie just prior to nibbling upon its point. If you did not know it, it is the one crowned with streusel – a crumbly topping of flour, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon – all offsetting an underlayer of relatively crisp, tart apple slices; rather than the simple pastry lid which lies atop a sweeter variety.

An encounter with a previously unthinkable misfortune is quite another matter.

Despite the inherent foresight that each of us possess regarding the inevitable calamities awaiting every passage along life's journey, the willingness to cherish a destiny in its totality across one’s lifetime not only necessitates the wisdom of reflection but even then, acquiring the foolishness to trust an incomprehensible unknown.

This may begin with the simple acknowledgment that rats are far better swimmers than nearly any child and a significantly higher number of the latter than you’d surely wish to recognize have suffered the very same misery which befell Hamelin’s rodents in the later sanitized adaptations of the reportedly based-upon-fact piper legend.”
Monte Souder (Rat Luck)
