Oscar Wilde
“I am afraid that she is a coquette, for she is always flirting with the wind.”
Oscar Wilde, The Happy Prince

Daniel Woodrell
“The fella had wandered over to where I could totally see him, face on, in decent light, and how he looked—well, it ain’t easy for me to say out loud.

He’s the kind of fella that if he was to make it to the top based only on his looks you’d still have to say he deserved it. Hoodoo sculptors and horny witches knitted that boy, put his bone and sinew in the most fabulous order. Dark-haired, green-eyed, with face bones delicate and dramatic both. If your ex had his lips you’d still be married. His size was somewhat smallish, but he was otherwise for certain the most beautiful boy I ever had seen. I’m afraid “beautiful” is the only word I can make work here, and I’m not bent or nothin’, but beautiful is the truth.”
Daniel Woodrell, Tomato Red

Molly Wizenberg
“While I sobbed into the greens, I wondered how Brandon, standing a few feet away at the pizza oven, could handle the onslaught of tickets. Answer: he's an East Coaster. In a pinch, he has access to such concepts as 'Fuck 'em', and 'Let 'em wait', and 'I'm working as fast as I can here.' I am a people-pleaser from Oklahoma, where life is placid enough that it's considered song-worthy to watch a hawk making lazy circles in the sky.”
Molly Wizenberg, Delancey: A Man, a Woman, a Restaurant, a Marriage

Patrick Rothfuss
“There was a door, but it was terribly bashful, so Auri politely pretended not to see it.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Slow Regard of Silent Things

Deanna Raybourn
“You have always been dazzling - the life of every party, the glamour girl who dances until dawn."

"Well, I am. But I'm dancing on broken glass. I'm Miss Havisham's wedding cake, Kit. A frothy, expensive, mice-eaten confection. I'm the Sphinx's nose, the fallen Colossus. I'm a beautiful ruin, and it's time that has done the deed.”
Deanna Raybourn, A Spear of Summer Grass
