Good heavens, I LOVE Diana Wynne Jones. Love her! She was hilarious, and brilliant, and a COMPLETE GENIUS. Please go read the Castle series if you haven't. Please.

(And btw, Disney: again. Castle in the Air is clearly the origin of the animated motion picture Aladdin - pay the woman's family! Give her credit!)

Diana Wynne Jones
“I am a believer in free will. If my dog chooses to hate the whole human race except myself, it must be free to do so.”
Diana Wynne Jones, Castle in the Air

Diana Wynne Jones
“It's just as I thought," she said. "I prefer you to every single one of these. Some of these look far too proud of themselves, and some look selfish and cruel. You are unassuming and kind. I intend to ask my father to marry me to you, instead of to the Prince in Ochinstan. Would you mind?”
Diana Wynne Jones, Castle in the Air

Diana Wynne Jones
“You cannot rob robbers with a kitten in your hat!”
Diana Wynne Jones, Castle in the Air

Diana Wynne Jones
“The soldier was like that. He was an expert in getting other people to do what he wanted. The only creature that could make the soldier do something he did not want was Midnight, and Midnight did things she did not want only when Whippersnapper wanted something. That put the kitten right at the top of the pecking order. A kitten!”
Diana Wynne Jones, Castle in the Air
