Catherine Lacey
“I realized that even if no one ever found me, and even if I lived out the rest of my life here, always missing, forever a missing person to other people, I could never be missing to myself, I could never delete my own history, and I would always know exactly where I was and where I had been and I would never wake up not being who I was and it didn't matter how much or how little I thought I understood the mess of myself, because I would never, no matter what I did, be missing to myself and that was what I had wanted all this time, to go fully missing, but I would never be able to go fully missing—nobody is missing like that, no one has ever had that luxury and no one ever will.”
Catherine Lacey, Nobody Is Ever Missing

Bernard Cornwell, The Pale Horseman

Robin Hobb
“Gankis lifted an arm to point at the distant shale cliffs. "And in the face of it there were thousands of little holes, little what-you-call-'ems..."
"Alcoves," Kennit supplied in an almost dreamy voice. "I call them alcoves, Gankis. As would you, if you could speak your own mother tongue.”
Robin Hobb, Ship of Magic

“Marry me, Rachel.'

'Not yet.'

'Tomorrow, Rachel. Marry me.'

'Maybe tomorrow.'

'There is no common blood between us,' murmurs Rachel.

'I am not your brother.'

'I know.'

He traces her face with his swollen fingers, across the brow bones and down the zygomatics, and along the jaw from earlobe to chin, sweeping away the brine as he goes.

'I am your Wolff,' he says.

'And I am your Wolff,' she replies.

Let the day begin.”
Emma Richler, Be My Wolff

“But you'd hope anyone would feel sympathy if they actually saw someone face to face, pleading for a chance.”
Olivia Sudjic, Sympathy

“From watching Silvia, I'd learned that one of the worst things about being ill is that most people find your suffering opaque. With this sadness it was different. I felt that I needed to nurture and protect it from people's understanding. I wanted Susy's sympathy because I wanted comfort and to feel less alone, and yet I also didn't want it—I didn't want my personal grief to be part of something universal right then.”
Olivia Sudjic, Sympathy

“I was worried that if I told her the story, she would identify with it too much. That her sympathy, however well-meaning, would make me possessive, angry again. She was always making things personal, seeing only their relationship to her rather than what was complex about them.”
Olivia Sudjic, Sympathy

Sarah Addison Allen
“I just don't know where home is. There's this promise of happiness out there. I know it. I even feel it sometimes. But it's like chasing the moon- just when I think I have it, it disappears into the horizon. I grieve and try to move on, but then the damn thing comes back the next night, giving me hope of catching it all over again.”
Sarah Addison Allen, The Girl Who Chased the Moon

Beth Harbison
“I put a big slab of butter into the pan. The Olekseis didn't give one damn about health, which made them refreshing to cook for, and my motto was pretty much, 'When in doubt, add butter.'
Right now, I was definitely in doubt.
I added more butter.”
Beth Harbison, When in Doubt, Add Butter

Lisa Kleypas
“We’re still poor,” Amelia had told her brother after poring over the solicitor’s letter describing the estate and its affairs. “The estate is small, the servants and most of the tenants have left, the house is shabby, and the title is apparently cursed. Which makes the inheritance a white elephant, to say the least. However, we have a distant cousin who may arguably be in line before you—we can try to throw it all off on him. There is a possibility that our great-great-great-grandfather may not have been legitimate issue, which would allow us to apply for forfeiture of the title on the grounds of—”
“I’ll take the title,” Leo had said decisively.
“Because you don’t believe in curses any more than I do?”
“Because I’m already so damned cursed, another one won’t matter.”
Lisa Kleypas, Mine Till Midnight

T.F. Hodge
“Loyalty may be extended to a personality or to the position. To which we value speaks volumes about original intent. Be mindful.”
T.F. Hodge

T.F. Hodge
“God' is a title, not a name - so be clearly mindful which (spirit) 'gods' you invite into your soulful experience.”

Deyth Banger
“I don't feel good anymore with this skin... probably a new title... a new chapter.. something new will be more okay than that... to much honesty... I am not on this... After all if you don't know this fact, I am going to point it to you...
Marriage is successful if it's build on a lie...”
Deyth Banger, The Life of One Kid 1
