“In the evening, the brilliant yellow pumpkin blossoms will close, drunk on sunshine, while the milky white jasmine will open their slender throats and sip the chill Himalayan air.

At night, low hearths will send up wispy curls of smoke fragrant with a dozen dinners, and darkness will clothe the land.

Except on nights when the moon is full. On those nights, the hillside and the valley below are bathed in a magical white light, the glow of the perpetual snows that blanket the mountaintops. On those nights I lie restless in the sleeping loft, wondering what the world is like beyond my mountain home.”
Patricia McCormick, Sold

Patricia McCormick, Sold

“Let truth be told. The more we allow water to be controlled, bottled and sold — the more we sell the security of our sons, daughters and souls. He who controls the water, controls us all. Water is the true gold.”

“Ama wipes her hands on her apron, looks up at our old roof with new eyes, and lifts the baby from his basket. She twirls him in the air, her skirts flying around her ankles the way the clouds swirl around the mountain cap--her laughter fresh and strange and musical to my ears.”
Patricia McCormick, Sold

Andrew    Wilson
“Early in 1967 Highsmith's agent told her why her books did not sell in paperback in America. It was, said Patricia Schartle Myrer, because they were 'too subtle', combined with the fact that none of her characters were likeable. 'Perhaps it is because I don't like anyone,' Highsmith replied. 'My last books may be about animals'.”
Andrew Wilson, Patricia Highsmith, ζωή στο σκοτάδι

Deyth Banger
“Mind", can't make differences between real and not..., (OFF NOW THAT..., then that...), you are saying lie after lie..., then believing in false stuff. And thinking in positive sides so to scream not much as the other do, but as always you one moment scream you can't stop it... Now putting against me a knife and saying "Go away... give me my daughter... give me her back"..., don't you see the people laugh at you, don't you see it. Look their faces, with so many smiles, but they aren't people, they are from the army, off, off for god sake they are soldiers which have guns. Have killed few people, have taken your daughter and they are many as a number than you and your whole family... Probably this part as an General I must skip it, because it's logical however look it and from this side, nobody will sacrifice so you to be happy... you will die.. O, o, the poor little girl crying in front of the people, she just saw her mother pointing with a knife against the soldiers and now she is killed by one of the soldiers.”
Deyth Banger

“Mein ganzes Handeln, mein Leben, wurde von der Jagd bestimmt.
Nicht wegen der Liebe zum Beruf, wegen des Solds oder des Ruhmes, innerhalb der Gilde aufzusteigen, sondern aus einem ganz anderen Grund – Rache. Diese Rache glühte, seit ich sechs Jahre alt war, siedend heiß in mir und mit jedem getöteten Ungeheuer wurde sie nicht weniger, sondern brannte noch heller.”
May Raven, Die Gefahr in den Wäldern

Awdhesh Singh
“The profit-oriented print and electronic media have made news itself a commodity which is sold on the basis of demand and supply. They sell what people want. The government can ban drugs and intoxicants which are harmful to society, but there is no such mechanism to ban media from selling harmful news. People have become so addicted to negative news nowadays that they don’t want to see good news at all.”
Awdhesh Singh, Myths are Real, Reality is a Myth

Richie Norton
“My amazing client! Reached out to me about a year and a half ago or so and told me he was working 80 hours a week at his job. We chatted and worked a way to start a new 'stupid idea' on his own. A year later he sold it for 7 figures. Woot! We are working together again.”
