Rachel Hawkins
“I heard the man and woman cry a warning as I frantically racked my brain for some sort of throat-repairing spell, which I was clearly about to need. Of course the only words that I actually managed to yell at the werewolf as he ran at me were, 'BAD DOG!'

Then, out of the corner of my eye, I caught a flash of blue light on my left. Suddenly, the werewolf seemed to smack into an invisible wall just inches in front of me....

"You know," someone said off to my left, "I usually find a blocking spell to be a lot more effective than yelling 'Bad dog,' but maybe that's just me.”
Rachel Hawkins, Hex Hall

Munia Khan
“All shadows of clouds the sun cannot hide
like the moon cannot stop oceanic tide;
but a hidden star can still be smiling
at night's black spell on darkness, beguiling”
Munia Khan

Miguel Ruiz
“Whenever we hear an opinion and believe it, we make an agreement, and it becomes part of our belief system.”
Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements

Cassandra Clare
“Stripping the protection wards off the ship was bad enough—it's a strong, strong enchantment, demon-based—but when you fell, I had to put a fast spell on the truck so it wouldn't sink when I lost consciousness. And I will lose consciousness, Alec.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Ashes

Erik Pevernagie
“The timeless moments between ‘being in the nick of time’ and ‘missing out’ may captivate our thinking and arouse a spell of time traveling. Those moments may be unsuspected anchor points in our lives, confer an astounding depth to our daily experiences and throw a stunning light on the history of our being. ("All the words he always wanted to tell her." )”
Erik Pevernagie

Erik Pevernagie
“If we are capable of recognizing that the highlights of our destiny can be found in the spell of a happy moment, we needn’t worry all the time about the hurly-burly of the future. ("Lost dreams")”
Erik Pevernagie

Erik Pevernagie
“If we cannot flap with the butterflies of “happiness,” we must bring to life the cascades of “joy,” conjuring up the spell of its enchantment and rolling cheerfully on the splashing waves of the future. ("Waiting for Mr. Out-placer")”
Erik Pevernagie

Charlotte Eriksson
“I was free with every road as my home. No limitations and no commitments. But then summer passed and winter came and I fell short for safety. I fell for its spell, slowly humming me to sleep, because I was tired and small, too weak to take or handle those opinions and views, attacking me from every angle. Against my art, against my self, against my very way of living. I collected my thoughts, my few possessions and built isolated walls around my values and character. I protected my own definition of beauty and success like a treasure at the bottom of the sea, for no one saw what I saw, or felt the same as I did, and so I wanted to keep to myself.
You hide to protect yourself.”
Charlotte Eriksson, Another Vagabond Lost To Love: Berlin Stories on Leaving & Arriving

Rachel Hawkins
“I told you, I suck at this. It's like any time I try to do a spell, it goes all big and scary and explodey...”
Rachel Hawkins, Demonglass

Erik Pevernagie
“We never come out untouched from the spell of beauty. While we break away from the commonplace, upscaling and veering from the trodden path, it challenges the ordinary. On the broken pieces of the humdrum of our lives, beauty conjures up poetry and infinity.( "Absence of beauty was like hell")”
Erik Pevernagie

“Of course the fall semester didn’t start for another eight weeks or so. There was always a chance we were both being overly optimistic in thinking I’d be alive when it rolled around.”

“It doesn't really matter if you are left behind the back, but what matters is your capacity to pull and push everyone by your way to get to the front.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Tim Pratt
“A body is a body." Viscarro shrugged his bony shoulders. "Dead, alive, alive, dead. I fail to see the importance of the distinction."
Yeah? So you'd just as soon fuck a living person as a dead one? What's the point of the distinction? Oh, right-one's normal, and one's called necrophilia."
Viscarro sighed. "Touche, I suppose.”
T.A. Pratt

“B looked down the shaft, at a metal ladder and darkness beyond. "Me first?"
Of course. You're the apprentice, so you always go first into the unknown. If anyone's going to be eaten by a grue, it should be you."
Tough job. But at least the hours are terrible.”
T.A. Pratt, Spell Games

“We did the usual beauty, grace, anti-dirt spell, voice of a songbird, the works…it is never that kind of beauty that we gift. It is a spell. You are the most beautiful woman in the world to your true love. To everyone else, well… that’s up to nature. But, you are decently pretty. I don’t know why you are complaining.”
T.T. Escurel, The House of Rose

Sasha Graham
“Magic is based on the tapestry of interconnectivity between you and the natural world.”

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Then Turin sprang about, and strode against him, and the edges of Gurthang shone as with flame; but Glaurung withheld his blast, and opened wide his serpent-eyes and gazed upon Turin. Without fear Turin looked into them as he raised upon the sword; and straightway he fell under the binding spell of the lidless eyes of the dragon, and was halted moveless. Then for a long time he stood as one graven of stone; and they two were alone, silent before the doors of Nargothrond. But Glaurund spoke again, taunting Turin, and he said: 'Evil have been all they ways, son of Hurin. Thankless fosterling, outlaw, slayer of thy friend, thief of love, usurper of Nargothrond, captain foolhardy, and deserter of thy kin. As thralls thy mother and thy sister live in Dor-lomin, in misery and want. Thou art arrayed as a prince, but they go in rags; and for thee they yearn, but tho carest not for that. Glad may thy father be to learn that he hath such a son; as learn he shall.' And Turin being under the spell of Glaurung hearkened to his words, and he say himself as in a mirror misshapen by malice, and loathed that which he saw.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion

Vasile Alecsandri
“Voi, ielelor, măiestrelor,
Duşmane oamenilor,
Stăpânele vântului,
Doamnele pământului,
Ce prin văzduh zburaţi,
Pe iarbă lunecaţi,
Şi pe valuri călcaţi,
Vă duceţi în locuri depărtate În baltă, trestie, pustietate,
Ca spuma la soare,
Iar capul cel deocheat
Sa ramâie luminat,
Curat, de boală scăpat,
Ochii cei vătămători
Şi de foc săgetători Înveliţi să fie cu perdele albe,
Să nu mai privească la obraze dalbe.
Descântece de iele
Unde popa nu toacă,
Unde fata nu joacă,
Vă duceţi în gura vântului
Să va loviţi de toarta pământului,
Ieşiţi din mână, trup, picior,
Şi să pieriţi sus într-un nor,
Daţi omului sănătate
Că sabie de foc vă bate!”
Vasile Alecsandri, Legende și pasteluri

Alissa J. Zavalianos
“No surging wind
Can find its mark
Though oft it does try—
It will not destroy
Who seeks to protect
All that Darkness
Has sought to wreck”
Alissa J. Zavalianos, The Earth-Treader

“It's my magic. I say what my intention is and who or what it's for, no one else.”
Wendy Wildcraft

Julie Abe
“I lean against the counter, biting into the delicate macaron. It feels like I'm drinking a lightly sweetened, warm cup of green tea, sprinkled with a tiny contentment spell, one of Mom's specialties.”
Julie Abe, The Charmed List

Ana Claudia Antunes
“If you speak French, and so well,
you are already a great musician.
Good French is so the same spell
has the music to a fine magician.”
Ana Claudia Antunes, The Witches Of Avignon

Stewart Stafford
“To Spell A Sentence by Stewart Stafford

Spell conjured and created,
A magnum opus bittersweet,
The sinister minister at work,
His face reddened from heat.

A leading light's shady grasp,
Blood pacts with monstrosities,
Freefalling drunk into darkness,
On trade winds of pomposity.

Battering ram breaches discovery,
A beaming grin breaks the sweat,
Dark entities screech their claim,
Swept down to Hell as a new pet.
