Douglas Adams
“And then, one Thursday, nearly two thousand years after one man had been nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be to be nice to people for a change, a girl sitting on her own in a small café in Rickmansworth suddenly realized what it was that had been going wrong all this time, and she finally knew how the world could be made a good and happy place. This time it was right, it would work, and no one would have to get nailed to anything.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Jim Butcher
“You can have everything in the world, but if you don't have love, none of it means crap," he said promptly. "Love is patient. Love is kind. Love always forgives, trusts, supports, and endures. Love never fails. When every star in the heavens grows cold, and when silence lies once more on the face of the deep, three things will endure: faith, hope, and love."

And the greatest of these is love," I finished. "That's from the Bible."

First Corinthians, chapter thirteen," Thomas confirmed. "I paraphrased. Father makes all of us memorize that passage. Like when parents put those green yucky-face stickers on the poisonous cleaning products under the kitchen sink.”
Jim Butcher, Blood Rites

Neil Gaiman
“Rule number one: Don't fuck with librarians.”
Neil Gaiman

Jim C. Hines
“Smudge continued running laps, flames flickering like tiny orange banners on his back. He was never wrong about danger, but he couldn’t tell you if that danger was a meteorite streaking toward the roof or an amorous moose running amok in the parking lot.”
Jim C. Hines, Libriomancer

Terry Pratchett
“The librarians were mysterious. It was said they could tell what book you needed just by looking at you, and they could take your voice away with a word.”
Terry Pratchett, Wintersmith
