Susanna Clarke
“She preferred those occupations that require no companion. She walked alone, rad alone, sat alone in the sittingroom or in the ray of faint sunshine which sometimes penetrated the little courtyard ab about one o'clock. She was less open-hearted and confiding than before; it was as if someone -- not necessarily Jonathan Strange -- had disappointed her and she was determined to be more independent in future.”
Susanna Clarke, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell

Susanna Clarke
“No, indeed!" she cried, all indignation. "I have no notion of asking people to perform services for me which I can do perfectly well for myself. I do not intend to go, in the space of one hour, from the helplessness of enchantment to another sort of helplessness!”
Susanna Clarke, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell

“How are you supposed to know what you want?” […]

“I think that when you don’t know, you should just wait until you do.”
Rebecca Stead

Robin Brande
“Remember I told you I’ve taken a vow of chastity. You understand what that means, right?
Yeah,” he said. “You’re very generous. I think that’s cool.”
I didn’t quite get his answer, but I didn’t want to prolong the conversation. [...]
That’s when it dawned on me what Greg had meant. [...] Um, that’s charity, Greg, not chastity.
He is so not the right guy for me.(137-138)”
Robin Brande, Fat Cat

Seymour Papert
“Every maker of video games knows something that the makers of curriculum don't seem to understand. You'll never see a video game being advertised as being easy. Kids who do not like school will tell you it's not because it's too hard. It's because it's--boring”
Seymour Papert
