Kevin Hearne
“There are many perks to living for twenty-one centuries, and foremost among them is bearing witness to the rare birth of genius. It invariably goes like this: Someone shrugs off the weight of his cultural traditions, ignores the baleful stares of authority, and does something his countrymen think to be completely batshit insane. Of those, Galileo was my personal favorite. Van Gogh comes in second, but he really was batshit insane.”
Kevin Hearne, Hounded

J.R.R. Tolkien
“And some things that should not have been forgotten were lost. History became legend. Legend became myth. And for two and a half thousand years, the ring passed out of all knowledge.”
Galadriel in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings

Kevin Hearne
“Monty Python is like catnip for nerds. Once you get them started quoting it, they are constitutionally incapable of feeling depressed.”
Kevin Hearne, Hounded

A.S. Byatt
“I cannot let you burn me up, nor can I resist you. No mere human can stand in a fire and not be consumed.”
A.S. Byatt, Possession

Alan Bradley
“I remembered a piece of sisterly advice, which Feely once gave Daffy and me:
"If ever you're accosted by a man," she'd said, "kick him in the Casanovas and run like blue blazes!"
Although it had sounded at the time like a useful bit of intelligence, the only problem was that I didn't know where the Casanovas were located.
I'd have to think of something else.”
Alan Bradley, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie
