 “You know that feeling,” she [Tessa] said, “when you are reading a book, and you know that it is going to be a tragedy; you can feel the cold and darkness coming, see the net drawing tight around the characters who live and breathe on the pages. But you are tied to the story as if being dragged behind a carriage and you cannot let go or turn the course aside.”

― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess

“A smile is the best way to get oneself out of a tight spot, even if it is a fake one. Surprisingly enough, everyone takes it at face value. I read that in a book.”

― Masashi Kishimoto, Naruto

Floating thoughts over at my book blog: The Quote Hoarder: Learning to Smile

Your Highness—

It has come to my attention that your library isn’t a library, but rather a personal collection for only you and your esteemed father to enjoy. As many of your million books seem to be present and underused, I must beg you to grant me permission to borrow a few so that they might receive the attention they deserve. Since I am deprived of company and entertainment, this act of kindness is the least someone of your importance could deign to bestow upon a lowly, miserable wretch such as I.

Yours most truly,
Celaena Sardothien

(by Sleeping At Last)

The years wore on and changed my heart,
The leading role for a smaller part.

Now I bear little resemblance to the king I once was.
I bear little resemblance to the king I could become.

I set out to rule the world
With only a paper shield and a wooden sword.

When words leave offmusic begins.” – Heinrich Heine

“We are going to be a dread triumvirate. That means thrice the adventure.” 

“Warlocks lived forever, which meant they saw the intimate, terrible cycle of birth, life and death over and over again. It also meant that they had all been witness to literally millions of failed relationships.”
