Susan Hill
“A man may be accused of cowardice for fleeing away from all manner of physical dangers but when things supernatural, insubstantial and inexplicable threaten not only his safety and well-being but his sanity, his innermost soul, then retreat is not a sign of weakness but the most prudent course.”
Susan Hill, The Woman in Black

J.K. Rowling
“You are here to learn the subtle science and exact art of potion-making. As there is little foolish wand-waving here, many of you will hardly believe this is magic. I don't expect you will really understand the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with its shimmering fumes, the delicate power of liquids that creep through human veins, bewitching the mind, ensnaring the senses. . . I can teach you how to bottle fame, brew glory, even stopper death — if you aren't as big a bunch of dunderheads as I usually have to teach.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Ken  O'Neill
“Have you noticed how Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen look nothing alike, and yet they both manage to look exactly like their father, Martin?”
Ken O'Neill, The Marrying Kind

Cory Doctorow
“The difference between reading a story and studying a story is the difference between living the story and killing the story and looking at its guts.”
Cory Doctorow, Eastern Standard Tribe

Lemony Snicket
“You don't spend your life hanging around books without learning a thing or two.”
Lemony Snicket, Shouldn't You Be in School?
