Helen Rappaport
“Father asks me to tell all who have remained loyal to him and those over who they might have influence, that they should not advenge him, for he has forgiven everyone and prays for them all; that they should not themselves seek revenge; that they should remember that the evil there is now is in the world will become yet more powerful, and that it is not evil that will conquer evil – only love.”
Helen Rappaport, The Romanov Sisters: The Lost Lives of the Daughters of Nicholas and Alexandra

Kazuo Ishiguro
“Don’t you wonder sometimes, what might have happened if you tried?”
Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go

“Happy voices, smiling faces, golden memories of a summer afternoon, of a world that could still laugh and talk of war as something far away.”
Helen Rappaport, The Romanov Sisters: The Lost Lives of the Daughters of Nicholas and Alexandra

Anne Brontë
“To regret the exchange of earthly pleasures for the joys of Heaven, is as if the grovelling caterpillar should lament that it must one day quit the nibbled leaf to soar aloft and flutter through the air, roving at will from flower to flower, sipping sweet honey from their cups, or basking in their sunny petals. If these little creatures knew how great a change awaited them, no doubt they would regret it; but would not all such sorrow be misplaced?”
Anne Brontë, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

Helen Hunt Jackson
“There was the whole world; if she loved him like this, nothing could make them wretched; his love would be enough for her, - and for him hers was an empire.”
Helen Hunt Jackson, Ramona
