Lev Grossman
“I have a little theory that I'd like to air here, if I may. What is it that you think makes you magicians?" More silence. Fogg was well into rhetorical-question territory now anyway. He spoke more softly. "Is it because you are intelligent? Is it because you are brave and good? Is is because you're special?

Maybe. Who knows. But I'll tell you something: I think you're magicians because you're unhappy. A magician is strong because he feels pain. He feels the difference between what the world is and what he would make of it. Or what did you think that stuff in your chest was? A magician is strong because he hurts more than others. His wound is his strength.

Most people carry that pain around inside them their whole lives, until they kill the pain by other means, or until it kills them. But you, my friends, you found another way: a way to use the pain. To burn it as fuel, for light and warmth. You have learned to break the world that has tried to break you.”
Lev Grossman, The Magicians

Thomas De Quincey

Thomas De Quincey, Confessions of an English Opium Eater

Brandon Sanderson
“Those candle flames were like the lives of men. So fragile. So deadly. Left alone, they lit and warmed. Let run rampant, they would destroy the very things they were meant to illuminate. Embryonic bonfires, each bearing a seed of destruction so potent it could tumble cities and dash kings to their knees.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings

Emily Dickinson
“To see her is a picture—
To hear her is a tune—
To know her an Intemperance
As innocent as June—
To know her not—Affliction—
To own her for a Friend
A warmth as near as if the Sun
Were shining in your Hand.”
Emily Dickinson, The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson

C.S. Pacat, Kings Rising

“Quite, quite,' she thought with a little sigh. 'It's always like this in their adventures. To save and be saved. I wish somebody would write a story sometime about the people who warm up the heroes afterward.”
Tove Jansson, Moominland Midwinter

Vera Nazarian
“Snowflakes swirl down gently in the deep blue haze beyond the window. The outside world is a dream.

Inside, the fireplace is brightly lit, and the Yule log crackles with orange and crimson sparks.

There’s a steaming mug in your hands, warming your fingers.

There’s a friend seated across from you in the cozy chair, warming your heart.

There is mystery unfolding.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

i tasted
the softness of the moon

in the coldest winds
i discovered
my soul's
warmest fireplace

in the roughness
of his stubble
the tenderest love.”

a place where my heart
feels the safest-
underneath his shirt.”

“Where are you?" he asked. "I'm right here" she said. "I know, but it feels like one percent of you is somewhere else, where is that one percent?" he said. "I don't know....I think I'm always like that..." she answered. "I like that." "You do?" "Yes, because that way, I have to always look for the one percent to find it.”
C. JoyBell C.

A.J. Darkholme
“Trust is not a gasoline-soaked blanket that succumbs to the matches of betrayal, never able to be used for its warmth again; it’s a tapestry that wears thin in places, but can be patched over if you have the right materials, circumstances, and patience to repair it. If you don’t, you’re always the one who feels the coldest when winter comes.”
A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

Sanober  Khan
“and the afterglow...
of your gaze...is the only
sweater that I need.”
Sanober Khan, Turquoise Silence

Vera Nazarian
“Ice is most welcome in a cold drink on a hot day.

But in the heart of winter, you want a warm hot mug with your favorite soothing brew to keep the chill away.

When you don’t have anything warm at hand, even a memory can be a small substitute.

Remember a searing look of intimate eyes.

Receive the inner fire.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Dejan Stojanovic
“I enjoy it when the world smiles; the more smiles, the warmer I am.”

in my mother’s arms.”

“The glory of fame isn't in having so many people know you, but in having so many people know you care. Otherwise, it's like being drawn to a fire to find no warmth.”

“To keep a warm heart in winter is the real victory.”

Franny Billingsley
“We laughed a lot and I grew warmer still, lovely and warm. I do realize that some of that warmth was due to the wine, but there was much more to it than that. There are two distinct aspects to Communion wine: one aspect is the wine itself, the other is the idea of communion. Wine is certainly warming, but communion is a great deal more so.”
Franny Billingsley, Chime

Philip Pullman
“Lyra had never seen such a sight, never heard such a bellow; it was like a mountain laughing.”
Philip Pullman, The Golden Compass

Anthony Liccione
“Teeth aren't pearly, until you smile.”
Anthony Liccione

“I am afraid that it will all be ruined. It is like stepping out into the darkness when one has a world of light and warmth behind one.”
Mary Balogh, The Devil's Web

Will Advise
“With all the global warming going around nowadays, it would only take the stubbornness of a mule and the patience of a sitting duck to achieve what no man has ever done before – namely melt the ice in a wax figure’s beaten heart that was chopped off and hidden 50 meters under the polar ice caps in Alaska, to protect it from feeling.”
Will Advise, Nothing is here...

“It is no small thing to feel the warmth of the sun on your skin.”
Marty Rubin
