House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
"So there's a definite cult around this book, and I am one of the many who drank the Kool-Aide and never looked back.

Sheri S. Tepper
“With us the inner nature accords with the outer expectation. The body follows the mind, and the mind seeks the soul, which it strives toward but has not yet won. With you it is otherwise. The mind follows the body in pursuit of the soul you have been told you already have. Because you cannot find it, you assume you have lost it somewhere in your past, and this keeps you from achieving it in your future.”
Sheri S. Tepper, Gibbon's Decline and Fall

Vanessa Diffenbaugh
“It wasn't as if the flowers themselves held within them the ability to bring an abstract definition into physical reality. Instead, it seemed that...expecting change, and the very belief in the possibility instigated a transformation.”
Vanessa Diffenbaugh, The Language of Flowers

Charles de Lint
“Most times we only see things for the way we are. But we're good at lying to ourselves. Sometimes we need somebody who's not living in our skin to point out how things really are.”
Charles de Lint, The Mystery of Grace

Charles de Lint
“She wanted to tell him what happened wasn't really his fault, but she knew that wasn't the way this kind of guilt worked. Intellectually, he already knew that. It was his emotions that were tripping him up. The tangle of love and memory and what might have been.”
Charles de Lint, The Mystery of Grace

“It's not what your reproductive organs do that counts, it's what your mind intends before that moment.”
