Neil Gaiman
“Oh, monsters are scared," said Lettie. "That's why they're monsters.”
Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“When I saw my friend kissing the woman he loved it occurred to me that this moment, this instant stolen from time and from God, was worth all the days of misery that had brought us to this place and the many others that were doubtless waiting for us on our return to life. And that everything that was decent and clean and pure in this world and everything for which it was worth living and breathing was in those lips, in those hands and in the look of that fortunate couple who, I know, would be together for the rest of their lives.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Prisoner of Heaven

Rebecca Makkai
“I believed that books might save him because I knew they had so far, and because I knew the people books had saved.”
Rebecca Makkai

Neil Gaiman
“. . . I lay on the bed and lost myself in the stories.
I liked that. Books were safer than other people anyway.”
Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Ta-Nehisi Coates
“You may have heard the talk of diversity, sensitivity training, and body cameras. These are all fine and applicable, but they understate the task and allow the citizens of this country to pretend that there is real distance between their own attitudes and those of the ones appointed to protect them. The truth is that the police reflect America in all of its will and fear, and whatever we might make of this country’s criminal justice policy, it cannot be said that it was imposed by a repressive minority. The abuses that have followed from these policies—the sprawling carceral state, the random detention of black people, the torture of suspects—are the product of democratic will. And so to challenge the police is to challenge the American people who send them into the ghettos armed with the same self-generated fears that compelled the people who think they are white to flee the cities and into the Dream. The problem with the police is not that they are fascist pigs but that our country is ruled by majoritarian pigs.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates, Between the World and Me
