[Let Me Quote Friday] Be a Child again

friday quotes

This week’s quotes are from teen/children books I’ve loved and cherished. Enjoy~

“All the fear in the world, and the violence that comes from the fear, and the hatred that comes from the violence, and the lonliness that comes from the hatred. All the unhappiness, all the cruelty, it gathers like clouds in the air, and grows dark and cold and heavy, and falls like grey snow in thick layers over the land. Then the world is muffled and numb, and no one can hear each other or feel each other. Think how sad and lonely that must be.”

William Nicholson, Firesong

“There are some choices you can only make once. You can’t go back to where you made a choice and then take the other one.”
Mary Hoffman, City of Flowers

“Live in the present, remember the past, and fear not the future, for it doesn’t exist and never shall. There is only now.”

Christopher Paolini, Eldest

“Being a practiced liar doesn’t mean you have a powerful imagination. Many good liars have no imagination at all; it’s that which gives their lies such wide-eyed conviction.”
Philip Pullman, The Golden Compass

“All their life in this world and all their adventures had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on for ever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.”
C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle
