Sue Grafton
“I love being single. It's almost like being rich.”
Sue Grafton, D is for Deadbeat

Susanna Clarke
“I have been quite put out of temper this morning and someone ought to die for it.”
Susanna Clarke, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell

J.R.R. Tolkien
“It was at this point that Bilbo stopped. Going on from there was the bravest thing he ever did. The tremendous things that happened afterward were as nothing compared to it. He fought the real battle in the tunnel alone, before he ever saw the vast danger that lay in wait.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

Kate DiCamillo
“There are those hearts, reader, that never mend again once they are broken. Or if they do mend, they heal themselves in a crooked and lopsided way, as if sewn together by a careless craftsman. Such was the fate of Chiaroscuro. His heart was broken. Picking up the spoon and placing it on his head, speaking of revenge, these things helped him to put his heart together again. But it was, alas, put together wrong.”
Kate DiCamillo, The Tale of Despereaux
