I too sail on myriad voyages in the ocean of my life. And your love holds my ship steady on those turbulent waters of life when the moon even does not show her face to me!”

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Now if you'll excuse us, all this talk of your son’s loyalty and fidelity has made me feel a sudden urge to go riding.

His father scowled. "You shouldn't ride in your condition. You could fall from the horse and lose or injure the babe you carry."

Holding Styxx’s hand in hers, she paused to smile graciously at him. "I never said anything about horse, Majesty. It’s your son I intend to mount and ride. Good day.” With Styxx in tow, she headed for the door.

Styxx didn't make a sound until they were out in the hall then he burst into laughter.”

Astrid Lindgren, Mio, My Son
