Elizabeth Wurtzel
“I mean, if you were to find a shattered mirror, find all the pieces, all the shards and all the tiny chips, and have whatever skill and patience it took to put all that broken glass back together so that it was complete once again, the restored mirror would still be spiderwebbed with cracks, it would still be a useless glued version of its former self, which could show only fragmented reflections of anyone looking into it. Some things are beyond repair. And that was me.”
Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation

Jacqueline Carey
“Your dreaming self seeks to tell you something your waking ears will not hear”
Jacqueline Carey, Kushiel's Chosen

Traci Chee
“But books are curious objects. They have the power to trap, transport, and even transform you if you are lucky. But in the end, books—even magic ones—are only objects pieced together from paper and glue and thread. That was the fundamental truth the readers forgot. How vulnerable the book really was. To fire. To the damp. To the passage of time. And to theft.”
Traci Chee, The Reader

J.K. Rowling
“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all—in which case, you fail by default.”
J.K. Rowling

Traci Chee
“Once there was, and one day there will be. This is the beginning of every story. “Once”
Traci Chee, The Reader
