“He raised his eyes. "Sister. See. This time I knew you."
Asha's heart skipped a beat. "Theon?"
His lips skinned back in what might have been a grin. Half his teeth were gone, and half those still left him were broken and splintered. "Theon," he repeated. "My name is Theon. You have to know your name.”
George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

Stephen King
“King looked back at Roland. "As The Man With No Name--a fantasy version of Clint Eastwood--you were okay. A lot of fun to partner up with."

"Is that how you think of it?"

"Yes. But then you changed. Right under my hand. It got so I couldn't tell if you were the hero, the antihero, or no hero at all. When you let the kid drop, that was the capper."

"You said you made me do that."

Looking Roland straight in the eyes--blue meeting blue amid the endless choir of voices--King said, "I lied, brother.”
Stephen King, Song of Susannah

Stephen King
There’s a young man with a gun.
Young man lost his honey
When she took it on the run.

She took it on the run!
Left her baby lonely
But he baby ain’t done.

The wind’ll blow ya through.
Ya gotta go where ka’s wind blows ya
Cause there’s nothin else to do.

Nothin else to do!
Gotta go where ka’s wind blows ya
Cause there’s nothin else to do.

Can you tell me what ya see?
Is it ghosts or just the mirror
That makes ya wanna flee?

I beg ya, tell me!
Is it ghosts or just your darker self
That makes ya wanna flee?

Whatcha doin at my do’?
If ya doan tell me now, my friend
I’ll lay ya on de flo’.

I can lay ya low!
The things I’ve do to such as you
You never wanna know.

Ain’t it grand to be alive?
To look out on Discordia
When the Demon Moon arrives.

Even when the shadows rise!
To see the world and walk the world
Makes ya glad to be alive.

You’re in a nasty fix!
To take a hand in traitor’s glove
Is to grasp a sheaf of sticks!

Nothing there but thorns and sticks!
When your find your hand in traitor’s glove
You’re in a nasty fix.

They go to hell or up to heaven!
The the guns are shot and the fires hot,
You got to poke em in the oven.

Salt and yow’ for leaven!
Heat em up and knock em down
And poke em in the oven.

You’re in the hands of fate.
No matter if it’s real or not,
The hour groweth late.

The hour groweth late!
No matter what shade ya cast
You’re in the hands of fate.

You have to walk the line.
When you finally get the thing you need
It makes you feel so fine.

It makes ya feel fine!
But if you’d have the thing you need
You have to walk the line.

It’s the other one again.
You may know her name and face
But that don’t make her your friend.

She is not your friend!
If you let her get too close
She’ll cut you up again!

We hail the one who made us all,
Who made the men and made the maids,
Who made the great and small.

He made us great and small!
And yet how great the hand of fate
That rules us one and all.

There’s a time to live and one to die.
With your back against the final wall
Ya gotta let the bullets fly.

Let the bullets fly!
Don’t ‘ee mourn for me, my lads
When it comes my day to die.

The child has come at last!
Sing your song, O sing it well,
The child has come to pass.

The worst has come to pass.
The Tower trembles on its ground;
The child has come at last.

The battle’s now begun!
And all the foes of men and rose
Rise with the setting sun.”
Stephen King, Song of Susannah

Stephen King
“I hate the assumption that you can’t write about something because you haven’t experienced it, and not just because it assumes a limit on the human imagination, which is basically limitless. It also suggests that some leaps of identification are impossible. I refuse to accept that, because it leads to the conclusion that real change is beyond us, and so is empathy. The idea is false on the evidence. Like shit, change happens.”
Stephen King, The Bazaar of Bad Dreams

Stephen King
“Dad-a-jum, dad-a-jiggers, goddam lobsters bit off your fingers," King said, and actually laughed.”
Stephen King, Song of Susannah
