Seanan McGuire
“The books were in no particular order, and Lundy found the process of sorting them remarkably soothing, involving, as it did, a strange sort of scavenger hunt through the entire shack. Books had been used to prop up tables and level out shelves; they were piled on surfaces where books had no business being and tucked under the edge of the thin mattress of the Archivist's bed. In the case of books that had become load-bearing, Lundy used her school ruler to carefully note their heights and went searching for rocks or pieces of scrap wood that would do the job as well, if not better. In the case of books left too near to water or exposed to the air, she rolled her eyes and whisked them away to literary safety.”
Seanan McGuire, In an Absent Dream

“If you want to help her, you need to help yourself first. No one serves their friends by grinding themselves into dust on the altar of compassion.”

“Sometimes 'fair' is bigger than just you. Sometimes ‘fair’ has to think about what’s best for everyone.”
Seanan McGuire, In an Absent Dream

“I am a genius of infinite potential and highly limited patience. People shouldn’t try me so.”
Seanan McGuire, Every Heart a Doorway

Charlotte Armstrong
“Everyone walks carrying a hoop of his own horizons, large or small (since scales differ) and more or less illuminated by his own understanding. What resemblance or relationship his world has to the real one, none can know. But the one sure-thing bet is this: The world "I really believe in" does not, it cannot, it never will coincide with reality.
Charlotte Armstrong, The Protégé
