“God sits on a blue throne called the vena cava. There is no need for a temple to communicate or pray to him. His truths travel from his seat over a purple bridge in your heart, also known as your conscience. Your conscience is where his wisdom shines. A crystal embedded within a fold of your pulmonary trunk acts as a transmitter and receiver. God is closer than you think. In your heart, is his truth and light.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Will Advise
“Quinns always come at half price, about half the time, and half-naked, even during the colder half of winter. A Quinn is like a queen, but draggier, and cheaper to buy and use for personal gain, unless you’re suspicious that you’re poor and illiterate like Jarod Kintz, in which case Quinns could be the spirits of your dead relatives, come to haunt you until you gather a massive fortune through selling books on the internet, to send some back in time through a portal you bought from the NSA, so they would have lived better lives without having to move a finger for their fortune. Oh, yah, and since they aren’t - they’re blue, like smurfs, yet they turn purple whenever tickled on the belly, which is something they seem to rather dislike, since they start biting and scratching when it happens, for no good reason, I might add.”
Will Advise, Nothing is here...

Ernesto Sabato
“(كان مرتدیا القمیص وحده، ویحمل شیّالات بلون بنفسجي شاحب، ثنى القمیص الى ما فوق الكوع. وكانت الشیّالات تُرى بالكاد على القمیص الأزرق، كانت ممسوحة وضائعة في الزرقة، لكنھ تواضع زائف: إنھا لا تسمح، حقا، بنسیانھا وتثیرني بعنادھا الخروفي كما لو أنھا حین أرادت أن تصیر بنفسجیة اللون توقفت في الطریق، لكنھا لم تتخل عن رغباتھا. المرء تعتریھ رغبة في مخاطبتھا: ھیّا كوني بنفسجیة ولننھِ المسألة. لكن الأمر یبقى كما كان. فھي تستمر في حالة التعلیق، عنودة في جھدھا الذي لم ینتھ، وفي بعض الأحیان تتحرك الزرقة المحیطة بھا وتغطیھا تماما. لا أراھا للحظات. إلا أنھا مجرد موجة واحدة لا غیر، فعن قریب تشحب الزرقة ھنا وھناك وأرى جزر البنفسجي الفاقع المتردد التي تأخذ في الاتساع والاتصال فیما بینھا خالقة الشیّالات من جدید. إبن العم أدولف بدون عینین، فأجفانھ المتورمة المحنیة لا تكشف إلا عن القلیل من البیاض)
- ساباتو يقتبس عن سارتر”
Ernesto Sabato

Shannon Hale
“What a noise we'll make among the drab and dull, how we'll...wait, I want more green. I hope I did not imply I only wanted your colors.

Aimee Bender
“I loved my dish towel. This one was two-toned, and had, on one side, stitchings of fat purple roses on a lavender background, and on the other side, fat lavender roses on a purple background. Which side to use? An optical-illusion namesake with which I could dry our dishes. It was soft and worn and smelled like no-nonsense laundry detergent.”
Aimee Bender, The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

Shannon Hale
