“And they lived happily (aside from a few normal disagreements, misunderstandings, pouts, silent treatments, and unexpected calamities) ever after.”
Jean Ferris, Twice Upon a Marigold
“I'm starting to believe that happily ever after includes people doing things that upset each other. We all get cranky, or impatient, or worried, or careless enough to do or say things that hurt someone else. Like it or not, that's normal. We can't blame it all on Olympia's bad energy. The important part is that we feel sorry about what we've done and make up for it. That's something Olympia never did.”
Jean Ferris, Twice Upon a Marigold

"Olive...ooh. I love you, too," he said, figuring it out. "You can tell me that one anytime you like." He folded her into his arms.”
Jean Ferris, Twice Upon a Marigold
“You should work extra hard to be your best selves. True evil has a hard time operating in the face of strenuous manifestations of good. Especially if you act right away. The longer you let evil hang around and get a grip on you, the harder it is to get rid of it.”
Jean Ferris, Twice Upon a Marigold
“We'll burn that bridge when we come to it!”
Jean Ferris, Twice Upon a Marigold
“It was good, too, to remember how hard a lot of people had to work to keep a kingdom running well, and that it was simply good manners to let them know, from time to time, how valued they were.”
Jean Ferris, Twice Upon a Marigold
“But it's tempting, isn't it, to give somebody like Olympia or Fenleigh a taste of their own medicine? To get even?'
I agree it's tempting. *Really* tempting. But it doesn't solve anything. It just perpetuates the problem by making us as bad as them. And we don't need any more of them, do we?”
Jean Ferris, Twice Upon a Marigold
“Christian looked at her fondly. When she was happy, so was he.”
Jean Ferris, Twice Upon a Marigold
“Some just wanted to be on the side of the good cookies.”
Jean Ferris, Twice Upon a Marigold
