Terry Pratchett
“Whatever happens, they say afterwards, it must have been fate. People are always a little confused about this, as they are in the case of miracles. When someone is saved from certain death by a strange concatenation of circumstances, they say that's a miracle. But of course if someone is killed by a freak chain of events -- the oil spilled just there, the safety fence broken just there -- that must also be a miracle. Just because it's not nice doesn't mean it's not miraculous.”
Terry Pratchett, Interesting Times

Jane Goodall
“In what terms should we think of these beings, nonhuman yet possessing so very many human-like characteristics? How should we treat them? Surely we should treat them with the same consideration and kindness as we show to other humans; and as we recognize human rights, so too should we recognize the rights of the great apes? Yes.”
Jane Goodall

Benjamin Franklin

Shannon L. Alder
“When you let go of control and commit yourself to happiness, it is so easy to offer compassion and forgiveness. This propels you from the past, into the present. People that are negative, spend so much time trying to control situations and blame others for their problems. Committing yourself to staying positive is a daily mantra that states, “I have control over how I plan to react, feel, think and believe in the present. No one guides the tone of my life, except me!”
Shannon L. Alder

Chuck Palahniuk
“And it's funny how when somebody saves you, the first thing you want to do is save other people. All other people. Everybody. The kid never knew the man's name. But he never forgot that smile. "Hero" isn't the first word, but it's the first word that comes to mind.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Choke

J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Rosamund Hodge
“Shade caught my hand, slid his fingers through mine. The touch felt like lightning up my arm.

“He’s right about one thing,” he said. “This house has many dangers. I cannot save you from most of them.”

I clenched my hand until I felt the bones of his fingers.

Then I let go and forced a smile. “I wasn’t born to be saved.”
Rosamund Hodge, Cruel Beauty

Allen R. Hunt
“You and I are part of the colony of heaven. Right now, we may reside here on earth, but our passport indicates that our citizenship is in heaven. We are on the earth, but not of the earth.”
Allen R. Hunt, Confessions of a Mega Church Pastor: How I Discovered the Hidden Treasures of the Catholic Church

“Think about this: You don't know when these people are going to die. They could get into a car today and be killed on the way home. Did they ever hear about Jesus? God has put you in their lives to be His ambassador. You're His megaphone, through which He wants to call out to them to come to Him and be saved.”
Ryan Dobson, Be Intolerant: Because Some Things Are Just Stupid

Jeanette Winterson
“There was a man here, lashed himself to a spar as his ship went down, and for seven days and seven nights he was on the sea, and what kept him alive while others drowned was telling himself stories like a madman, so that as one ended another began. On the seventh day he had told all the stories he knew and that was when he began to tell himself as if he were a story, from the earliest beginnings to his green and deep misfortune. The story he told was of a man lost and found, not once, but many times, as he choked his way out of the waves. And the night fell, he saw the Cape Wrath light, only lit a week it was, but it was, and he knew that if he became the story of the light, he might be saved. With his last strength he began to paddle towards it, arms on either side of the spar, and in his mind the light became a shining rope, pulling him in. He took hold of it, tied it round his waist, and at that moment, the keeper saw him, and ran for the rescue boat.”
Jeanette Winterson, Lighthousekeeping

William Golding
“Wave after wave, Ralph followed the rise and fall until something of the remoteness of the sea numbed his brain. Then gradually the almost infinite size of this water forced itself oh his attention. This was the divider, the barrier. On the other side of the island, swathed at midday with mirage, defended by the shield of the quiet lagoon, one might dream of rescue; but here, faced by the brute obtuseness of the ocean, the miles of division, one was clamped down, one was helpless, one was condemned, one was-”
William Golding, Lord of the Flies

H.D.
“I have tasted words, I have seen them. Never had her hands reached out in darkness and felt the texture of pure marble, never had her forehead bent forward and, as against a stone altar, felt safety. I am now saved. Her mind could not then so specifically have seen it, could not have said, "Now I will reveal myself in words, words may now supercede a scheme of mathematical-biological definition. Words may be my heritage and with words...A lady will be set back in the sky....there was hope in a block of unsubstantiated marble, words could carve and set up solid altars...Thought followed the wing that beat its silver into seven-branched larch boughs.”
H.D., HERmione

Melissa Marr

Melissa Marr, Graveminder

Richelle E. Goodrich
“When a soul is saved, raised up out of the black abyss of despair, it never means as much to anyone else as it does to the one rescued.”

“When we arrived at the Lodz ghetto, I was sixteen years old and Ruth was five. My mother was forty-six, my father forty-eight.

When I left the Lodz ghetto, I was seventeen years old and Ruth was five. My mother was forty-six, my father forty-eight.

When I die, I will be an old man...But even then I will always know that my sister is five. She will always be five.”
Katherine Locke

Chelsea McDonald, Save Me

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Without God, I am living in an endless desert forever wondering and never figuring out why it’s so hot, and why there’s no water, and why I’m dying. And although the desert seems to stretch to endless horizons in every direction, God’s coolness and water and life is but a single step right in front of me.  And if I'd just take a step, the 'wondering' and 'figuring out' would be all but figured out.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Craig D. Lounsbrough
