Neil Gaiman, InterWorld

We can't control the weather, but it's always a perfect seventy-two degrees in our central-air controlled worlds.”
Brian Krans

“His life is worth so much more than he believes. His life means the world to me, and I want this world to know that I'm not afraid to love him. I want this world to know that he's going to be the death of me because THAT'S HOW I WANT IT. I don't care what the rules are because I've made my own, and in my rules it says 'Love the one you do, for he'll forever love you.' So this life can go kick a can for all I care! I'm gonna love him even if people don't approve. I've been through so much, but he's been through more, so as I said, GO KICK A CAN, because, yes, I Love Him.”
Lillian Michelle Frazier

Anthony Doerr
“As she [Anna] sweeps the workroom floor, as she lugs another roll of fabric or another bucket of charcoal, as she sits in the workroom beside Maria, fingers numb, breath pluming over the silk, she practices her letters on the thousand blank pages of her mind. Each sign signifies a sound, and to link sounds is to form words, and to link words is to construct worlds.”
Anthony Doerr, Cloud Cuckoo Land

Stephen King
“Worlds don't GROW, Roland."
"Don't they? When I was a boy, Eddie, there were maps. I remember one in particular. It was called the Greater Kingdoms of the Western Earth. It showed my land, which was called by the name Gilead. It showed the Downland Baronies, which were overrun by riot and civil war in the year after I won my guns, and the hills, and the desert, and the mountains, and the Western Sea. It was a long distance from Gilead to the Western Sea--a thousand miles or more--but it had taken me over twenty years to cross that distance."
"That's impossible," Susannah said quickly, fearfully. "Even if you WALKED the whole distance it couldn't take twenty years."
"Well, you have to allow for stops to write postcards and drink beer," Eddie said, but they both ignored him.
"I didn't walk but rode most of the distance on horseback," Roland said. "I was--slowed up, shall we say?--every now and then, but for most of that time I was moving. Moving away from John Farson, who led the revolt which toppled the world I grew up in and who wanted my head on a pole in his courtyard--he had good reason to want that, I suppose, since I and my compatriots were responsible for the deaths of a great many of his followers--and because I stole something he held very dear."
"What, Roland?" Eddie asked curiously.
Roland shook his head. "That's a story for another day...or maybe never. For now, think not of that but of this: I've come MANY thousands of miles. Because the world is growing."
"A thing like that just can't happen," Eddie reiterated, but he was badly shaken, all the same. "There'd be earthquakes...floods...tidal waves...I don't know what all..."
"LOOK!" Roland said furiously. "Just look around you! What do you see? A world that is slowing down like a child's top even as it speeds up and moves on in some other way none of us understand. Look at your kills, Eddie! Look at your kills, for your father's sake!”
Stephen King, The Waste Lands

Sarah J. Maas
“Perhaps she'd never stop seeing them. Perhaps she alone in this wold and all others knew what lay beyond the invisible walls separating them.
How much life dwelled and thrived. loved and hated and struggled to claw out a living.”
Sarah J. Maas, Kingdom of Ash

John Keats
“I hope I shall never marry. Though the most beautiful Creature were waiting for me at the end of a Journey or a Walk; though the Carpet were of Silk, the Curtains of the morning Clouds; the chairs and Sofa stuffed with Cygnet's down; the food Manna, the Wine beyond Claret, the Window opening on Winander mere, I should not feel - or rather my Happiness would not be so fine, as my Solitude is sublime. Then instead of what I have described, there is a sublimity to welcome me home - The roaring of the wind is my wife and the Stars through the window pane are my Children. The mighty abstract Idea I have of Beauty in all things stifles the more divided and minute domestic happiness - an amiable wife and sweet Children I contemplate as a part of that Beauty, but I must have a thousand of those beautiful particles to fill up my heart. I feel more and more every day, as my imagination strengthens, that I do not live in this world alone but in a thousand worlds”
John Keats, The Letters of John Keats, 1814-1818, Volume One

Thoughts rule the world.”

Kara Swanson
“Yeah, just be aware. London is pretty far away . . .” An odd note comes into his voice. “It’s practically another world.”
Another world . . .
The thought and his hesitant tone should unnerve me, but all I can do is shrug.
“Well, maybe a new world is just what I need.”
After all, I’ve never quite fit into this one.”
Kara Swanson, Dust

Alix E. Harrow
“Thresholds are dangerous places, neither here nor there, and walking across one is like stepping off the edge of a cliff in the naive faith that you'll spread wings halfway down. You can't hesitate, or doubt. You can't fear the in-between.”
Alix E. Harrow, The Ten Thousand Doors of January

Anne Elisabeth Stengl
“What are their rights?" he asked at last. He could scarcely hear himself speak. But whoever stood beside him in the dark seemed to have no difficulty.
"To choose their own paths," it replied. "To live their lives without obligation. To be gods of their own worlds."
Once more Eanrin considered. Then he asked, "Why are their voices so small?"
"Because I have given them what they demanded. I have allotted them worlds in which they may reign divine. And those worlds are small."
"How small?"
"Very small.”
Anne Elisabeth Stengl, Starflower
