Book cover for The Mauritius Command (Aubrey/Maturin, #4)
but I am extremely averse to appearing in the role of fairy godmother, a purely fortuitous fairy godmother in this case. It can inflict an apparent, though fallacious, burden of obligation, and cause great damage to a relationship.’
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
“In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree:
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.”
Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Complete Poems

Pierce Brown
“That gulf that divided us is still there, filled with questions and recriminations and guilt, but that's only part of love, part of being human. Everything is cracked, everything is stained except the fragile moments that hang crystalline in time and make life worth living.”
Pierce Brown, Morning Star

Wilkie Collins
“God be praised for His mercy! I have seen a little sunshine-- I have had a happy time.”
Wilkie Collins, The Moonstone

John Keats
“Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know”
John Keats, The Complete Poems

Viktor E. Frankl
“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
Viktor E. Frankl
