Jayson
Jayson is 4% done with Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban:

Notes:
(1) Hedwig flew all the way to France, assuming Hermione would have a gift for Harry. A bit presumptuous.
(2) Hermione's letter: "Dear Harry, Ron wrote to me ... Did you see that picture of Ron and his family ... Ron says he's going to be in London ... Ron says Percy's Head Boy ... Ron doesn't seem too happy."
- Ron, Ron, Ron. It's all about Ron.

S.E. Hinton
“I lie to myself all the time. But I never believe me.”
S.E. Hinton, The Outsiders

Jeff Lemire
“They say the city gets in your blood, but that's crap. The city doesn't become part of you... you become part of it. It soaks you up bit by bit, year after year. Until you're just a tiny part of its system... Pumping through its veins, lost in its arteries.”
Jeff Lemire, Essex County, Vol. 2: Ghost Stories

Diana Gabaldon
“I stood still, vision blurring, and in that moment, I heard my heart break. It was a small, clean sound, like the snapping of a flower's stem.”
Diana Gabaldon, Dragonfly in Amber

Craig Ferguson
“The Universe is very, very big.
It also loves a paradox. For example, it has some extremely strict rules.
Rule number one: Nothing lasts forever.
Not you or your family or your house or your planet or the sun. It is an absolute rule. Therefore when someone says that their love will never die, it means that their love is not real, for everything that is real dies.

Rule number two: Everything lasts forever.”
Craig Ferguson, Between the Bridge and the River

Sylvia Plath
“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
