Marie Lu
“Clouds suit my mood just fine.”
Marie Lu, Champion

Lang Leav
“A bird who hurt her wing,
now forgotten how to fly.

A song she used to sing,
but can't remember why.

A breath she caught and kept -
that left her in a sigh.

It hurts her so to love you,
but she won't say goodbye.”
Lang Leav

Mary E. Pearson
“Ancients pulled metals more precious than gold from the center of the earth - They spun into giant lacy wings that flew them to the stars and back
"Is that what you'd do with wings?"
She shook her head "No, I'd fly to the stars, but I'd never come back”
Mary E. Pearson, The Kiss of Deception

J.R. Rim
“Wings are like dreams. Before each flight, a bird takes a small jump, a leap of faith, believing that its wings will work. That jump can only be made with rock solid feet.”
J.R. Rim

Giorge Leedy

I can't think about you,
Without smiling.
What I wouldn’t give,
To go back there,
Take you in my arms,
Kiss you,
And tell you,
"I still love you."

It's been three decades now,
And still your smile's with me,
Your wave goodbye,
The love in your eyes,
And everything else you gave me,
Before that highway fog swept in,
And stole your spirit away.

Oh- to return by your side again,
Fish beside the Pleasant Hill Dam,
Hike through the Mayer's woods,
Hang out on your big hill,
Sleep naked in your twin bed,
Fill your room with laughter-
And marijuana smoke.

You returned home-
And I traveled on down the road,
Found new loves,
Safely took them under my wing,
And deeply into my heart.

But you know, as I do-
This wasn’t always possible.
I didn’t always have the fire-
The courage to stand tall,
The joy to expand,
Nor the love to give deeply.
These were all your gifts--
To me.

When I close my eyes for good,
And cry out-
"Lord- forgive me for I have sinned-"
I'll joyously return by your side,
Take you into my arms,
Kiss you,
And tell you,
"I still love you.”
Giorge Leedy, Uninhibited From Lust To Love

Kamand Kojouri
“Tell me where the swans go in the winter
I need to know if the mute ones can sing.

Tell me why stars fall from the sky
I need to know if it is luck they bring.

Tell me why feathers land near you
I need to know if you've injured your wing.

Now, tell me where you end, my angel
For I no longer know where I begin.”
Kamand Kojouri

Aaron Sorkin
“Government should be a place where people can come together, and no one gets left behind. No one…gets left behind. An instrument of good.”
Aaron Sorkin

Louis Zamperini
“(On surviving on the raft for 47 days) We had truly made it on a wing and prayer.”
Louis Zamperini, Devil at My Heels

Mark Walden
“I hope you don't snore," Otto said, laughing.
"Like a chainsaw, my friend, like a chainsaw," Wing replied, grinning.”
Mark Walden, H.I.V.E. Higher Institute of Villainous Education

Mark Walden
“Perhaps they never left the island when construction was complete," Otto replied.
Wing raised an eyebrow. "A true job for life."
"Or a life for a job," Otto countered. He wouldn't be at all surprised, given the emphasis on total secrecy, if H.I.V.E. offered an "aggressive" retirement package for lower-level employees. Here, being fired was probably a term that was taken a little too literally.”
Mark Walden, H.I.V.E. Higher Institute of Villainous Education

Ilona Andrews
“Look, it can be fast, good, or cheap. You can have any two but never all three.”
Ilona Andrews, One Fell Sweep

Munia Khan
“Wings are of many kinds. Butterfly's wings, vulture's wings, eagle-wings, spread wings of white swans, dragonfly's serene wings, wings of albatross, lovely wings of humming birds, tiny wings of a fly or a bumble-bee-wings; and when they fly, they fly their best according to their ability of flying. We should not underestimate the size of those heavenly wings.”
Munia Khan

Israelmore Ayivor
“Develop the wings of loyalty and you will fly above the dooms of disappointments. Disloyalty has one whistle; when it’s blown, opportunities take to their heels!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Daily Drive 365

Cyril Wong
“If this turns to friendship, it only means
That one of us will suffer.

That when we meet after the worst of endings,
There will only be this skein of words between us—

Most of them for boredom, fewer for loneliness—
Rising out of our mutual space of breath, leaving

Behind a bluer sky each moment of departure.
And one of us will cling on to its blue,

Hung on partings like a muted cloud, while
The other rides on a wing of word away from here.”
Cyril Wong, Below: Absence: Poems

Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Shannon Hale, Princess Academy

“Don't take me under your wing and tell me that scent is duck sauce”

Mara Amberly
“Feathers layered like dragons’ scales,
their symmetry perfectly fledged,
framing slender shoulders; sublime.
A tumble of red tresses shimmer.
Soft wings arch toward the sky.

Once a cherub, she has grown.
A young woman now, strong and lithe.
Powerful with stormy eyes alight,
windswept in her glory.
An angel in body and spirit.
- Winged Justice”
Mara Amberly, Feathers, Dreams and Faerie Wings: An Art and Poetry Collection

Bernard Cornwell
“The shield wall reeks of shit, and all a man wants is to be home, to be anywhere but on this field that prepares for battle, but none of us will turn and run or else we will be despised for ever. We pretend we want to be there, and when the wall at last advances, step by step, and the heart is thumping fast as a bird’s wing beating, the world seems unreal.”
Bernard Cornwell, The Flame Bearer

Claudia Pavel
“You wonderful falling star,
escaped from the eternal bliss.
You angel of light,
Who carries the sun under his wings.
Why did you descend on Earth?"

(fragment from "An immortal appearance")”
Claudia Pavel, The odyssey of my lost thoughts
