I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.”
Emily Dickinson

“In Africa we having a saying, 'If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.' ...Before I go back home, I want you to consider us, Katie. Ponder what it would be like if we went together. Not alone and fast but together and far.”
Robin Jones Gunn, Coming Attractions

Frances Hodgson Burnett
“The robin flew from his swinging spray of ivy on to the top of the wall and he opened his beak and sang a loud, lovely trill, merely to show off. Nothing in the world is quite as adorably lovely as a robin when he shows off - and they are nearly always doing it.”
Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

Karen Marie Moning
“Ryodan says softly, “Holy strawberries, Dani, we’re in a jam.”
I look at him like he’s sprouted two heads. Holy strawberries? In a jam? Even Barrons looks stumped.
He continues, “But don’t worry. Holy priceless collection of Etruscan snoods—you really butchered that one, by the way—I’ve got it in the bag. How about this one: holy borrowing bibliophile, let’s book.”
Karen Marie Moning, Burned

Howard Pyle

Chuck Dixon
“I'm playing 'chicken' with a kid called 'Robin.' I don't know why he's showing off. I don't know why I'm going along with it. I don't even know where we're going. It could be a robbery. Or prison break. A gang war. Or free donuts at Lenny's. He sees that Bat-signal in the sky and takes off. Like a bird out of Hell. And he just expects me to follow him. And I do.”
Chuck Dixon, Batgirl: Year One

«Sometimes I think your secrets have secrets»”
Peter J. Tomasi

“As suddenly as they had reached for each other, they broke apart. Tears were rolling down Robin's face. For one moment of madness, Strike yearned to say, “Come with me”, but there are words that can never be unsaid or forgotten, and those, he knew, were some of them.”
Robert Galbraith, Lethal White

“Her betrothed is a lout, her father is a boor; and now her brother is trailing around looking like a thunderstorm about to burst. Men are not sensible creatures.'

David Levithan, Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List

Denny O'Neil
“You weren't the perfect father but that's okay because -- probably nobody's a perfect father. No family's perfect, either. I was lucky. I was privileged. Not because of the big house and the money, but because you gave me a lot of yourself. You taught me, you showed me, you encouraged me -- you never lied to me and you never demanded that I be anything I’m not. I didn’t imitate you because you insisted that I do so, but because I wanted to. Of all the men I knew, you were most worthy of imitation. Then I blamed you for letting me be who I was. Pretty dumb. You and Alfred gave me a home and you gave me what we don't mention. The L word. You were the best family I could have had. Thanks.”
Dennis O'Neill, Nightwing (1995) #4

Jeph Loeb
“[At his parents' graves] I've brought a young man -- a boy, actually -- to stay at the house. He's … lost his parents at roughly the same age that I … That I lost you. I don't know what will happen. I don't see myself as any sort of father figure. But … I think I can make a difference in his life.”
Jeph Loeb, Batman: Dark Victory

“Robin: I'm a hero, Starfire, and if you don't like it...
Starfire: Robin? I like it more then you will ever know.”
Teen Titans Trouble in Tokyo

“One of the earliest and most vivid memories of Robin’s childhood was of the day that the family dog had been put down. She herself had been too young to understand what her father was saying; she took the continuing existence of Bruno, her oldest brother’s beloved Labrador, for granted. Confused by her parents’ solemnity, she had turned to Stephen for a clue as to how to react, and all security had crumbled, for she had seen, for the first time in her short life, happiness and comfort drain out of his small and merry face, and his lips whiten as his mouth fell open. She had heard oblivion howling in the silence that preceded his awful scream of anguish, and then she had cried, inconsolably, not for Bruno, but for the terrifying grief of her brother.”
Robert Galbraith, The Cuckoo's Calling

Kate Carlisle
“So how's the putrid pile of caca doing?”
Kate Carlisle, Homicide in Hardcover

David Levithan

Patrick Gleason
“-¡Soy Abush! ¡Hijo de un millar de reyes de la antigüedad! ¡Heredero de los sagrados montes y valles y de las gloriosas bestias que los habitan! ¿¡Qué derecho tienes a proferir tan arrogantes exigencias!? ¿¡Quién te crees que eres, niño!?
-Soy Robin. Hijo de Batman. ¡Y no te hace falta saber nada más!”

“-Tu "mano a mano" ha sido acertado.
-¿Te refieres a mi "mano a diente"? No te mentiré, me ha sentado bien.
-TT. No has hecho más que ahorrarme problemas. Llevaba un tiempo medio suelto.
-¿Medio suelto? ¿Por alguna pelea?
-Entonces, ¿qué? Tío. No me digas que aún tienes... ¿dientes de leche?
-La dentición temporal de los humanos...”

“-Todo lo que he hecho en este año de la expiación ha terminado por dejar atrás sólo cenizas. Así que ríete cuanto quieras, chica. Ahora sé que no puedo deshacer lo que he hecho. Lo único que significa esta "R" es "ruina".
-En el fondo sabes que esta "R"no es la de "ruina". Cada vez que te la pones, haces lo mismo que tus hermanos. Luchas por lo correcto y honras el legado de quien te salvó de ti mismo. Esta "R" es la de "redención". Por eso quiero que sepas que... aunque ahora mismo te sientas como si estuvieras solo, y como si hubieras perdido a tu padre y a tus hermanos... has ganado una hermana.”
Patrick Gleason, Robin: Son of Batman, Volume 1: Year of Blood

Glen Weldon
“I couldn't stand boy companions," he [Jules Feiffer] wrote in his 1965 essay " The Great Comic Book Heroes. "Robin was my own age. One need only look at him to see he could fight better, swing from a rope better, play ball better, eat better and live better...He was obviously an A student, the center of every circle, the one picked for greatness in the crowd—God, how I hate him. You can imagine how please I was when, years later, I heard he was a fag.”
Glen Weldon, The Caped Crusade: Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture

“One never knows the idyllic charm of our northern woods who has not seen them in April, when it is all a feast of birds and buds and waking life. Midsummer does not compare with this. This month belongs to the birds and flowers; but most of all to the robin. I cannot tell this story without giving the robins the place which I know they must have had in it, — great husky fellows, as red as blood in the lifting between showers that made a golden sunset,
sitting high in the treetops and splitting their throats with their rain-carol, singing in jubilance at being back again, glad to find once more the corner of the earth that they were born in, and trolling forth such lusty music that all their pertness and swagger and pilfering of a later date is forgiven in advance. Of all the birds of springtime, I would like best to be the robin just getting back to his old home; for it is brave and blithe and bonny that he is, and he is April to all of us in the far north.”
Fannie Hardy Eckstorm, The Penobscot Man

Deyth Banger

(Robin Sharma said this once, in other words which will mean that to be genius or clever you must be curious to learn!)”
Deyth Banger

Deyth Banger
“Reading a book makes a conversation with the author (Robin Sharma on The Cure For Fear - Robin Sharma)”
