Susanna Clarke
“And how shall I think of you?' He considered a moment and then laughed. 'Think of me with my nose in a book!”
Susanna Clarke, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell

Oscar Wilde
“How you can sit there, calmly eating muffins when we are in this horrible trouble, I can’t make out. You seem to me to be perfectly heartless."

"Well, I can’t eat muffins in an agitated manner. The butter would probably get on my cuffs. One should always eat muffins quite calmly. It is the only way to eat them."

"I say it’s perfectly heartless your eating muffins at all, under the circumstances.”
Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest

Dorothy Dunnett
“Jerott, for God’s sake! Are you doing this for a wager?’ said Lymond, his patience gone at last. ‘What does anyone want out of life? What kind of freak do you suppose I am? I miss books and good verse and decent talk. I miss women, to speak to, not to rape; and children, and men creating things instead of destroying them. And from the time I wake until the time I find I can’t go to sleep there is the void—the bloody void where there was no music today and none yesterday and no prospect of any tomorrow, or tomorrow, or next God-damned year.”
Dorothy Dunnett, The Disorderly Knights

Dorothy Dunnett
“… Jerott?’ Two steps away, Jerott stood perfectly still.

‘I hear you.’

‘You sound like a schoolmaster,’ said Lymond’s voice at his ear, with a trace of its usual lightness. ‘It doesn’t matter. Go on.’ Jerott did not move.

‘What were you going to say?’

‘Something regrettable. I’ll say it; and then we can both forget it,’ said Lymond. ‘You put up with a lot, you know. More than you should. More than other people can be expected to do.… I find I need a sheet anchor against Gabriel. However much I try—don’t let me turn you against me.”
Dorothy Dunnett, Pawn in Frankincense

Alice Oseman
“Give your friendships the magic you would give a romance. Because they're just as important. Actually, for us, they're way more important.”
Alice Oseman, Loveless
