Celeste Ng
“He can't know what it was like, not the first time, not the last. He can guess, but he won't ever know, not really. What it was like, what she was thinking, everything she'd never told him.

“Moses found the wises man in this sacred meeting place of the waters. His name is not given in the Koran, but all know him as the aforementioned great immortal Khezr.

There were many Merlins among the Celts in ancient times; so, too, with Khezr.”

Emma Theriault
“I'm the one who's different."

She pinched his arm lightly as the carriage turned onto rue Dauphine. "Not a princess." Belle's refusal to take the title marriage to Lio would have afforded her was a touchy subject between them.
He mercifully let it go. "But certainly not the girl you were then."
She turned her attention to the wallpapered panel of the carriage, tracing the embossed flowers with the tip of her finger, unwilling to let him see her smile falter once more. She didn't know how to explain that she would always be that girl, that no titles or fine clothing would change her. In her bones, she was a poor, provincial peasant who had risen far above her station.”
Emma Theriault, Rebel Rose

Emma Theriault
“She had been adamant that she would never be Princess Belle, eager to avoid the false trappings that came with a title so flimsy in a principality. But queen of a kingdom in its own right? That was no empty title.”
Emma Theriault, Rebel Rose

Arthur Conan Doyle
“I might not have gone but for you, and so have missed the finest study I have ever come across: a study in scarlet, eh? Why shouldn't we use a little art jargon. There's the scarlet thread of murder running through the colorless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it.

-Sherlock Holmes”
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, A Study in Scarlet
