V.E. Schwab
“What she needs are stories.
Stories are a way to preserve one's self. To be remembered. And to forget.
Stories come in so many forms: in charcoal, and in song, in paintings, poems, films. And books.
Books, she has found, are a way to live a thousand lives—or to find strength in a very long one.”
V.E. Schwab, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

“As always, words fail when you most want to say the right thing.”
Glendy Vanderah, Where the Forest Meets the Stars

Pip Williams
“Some words are more than letters on a page, don't you think? They have shape and texture. They are like bullets, full of energy, and when you give one breath you can feel its sharp edge against your lip.”
Pip Williams, The Dictionary of Lost Words

“Words define us, they explain us, and, on occasion, they serve to control or isolate us.”
Pip Williams, The Dictionary of Lost Words

“You can justify anything if you do it poetically enough.”
