Quotes from Tumblr
Some quotes from my tumblr:
“Sometimes fiction is a way of coping with the poison of the world in a way that lets us survive it.”
- Neil Gaiman
"I met a wonderful new man. He’s fictional, but you can’t have everything."
- The Purple Rose of Cairo
“Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.”
- Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
"How I wished I lived in a Jane Austen novel!"
- Dodie Smith, I Capture The Castle
"Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they’ve all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe."
- Neil Gaiman, A Game of You
“I like the stars. It’s the illusion of permanence, I think. I mean, they’re always flaring up and caving in and going out. But from here, I can pretend…I can pretend that things last. I can pretend that lives last longer than moments. Gods come, and gods go. Mortals flicker and flash and fade. Worlds don’t last; and stars and galaxies are transient, fleeting things that twinkle like fireflies and vanish into cold and dust. But I can pretend…”
- Neil Gaiman, The Sandman
"People that like to read are always a little fucked up."
- Pat Conroy, The Prince of Tides
"Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise."
- Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“I like nonsense — it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope… and that enables you to laugh at all of life’s realities.”
- Dr. Seuss
“Life isn’t finding shelter in the storm. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”
- Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Life is what you make it. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. You can’t change the past, but the future isn’t set in stone. You can effect a change there. Move forward not with hatred or love. Move forward with purpose.”
- Sherrilyn Kenyon, Dream Chaser
“It’s good to have mysteries. It reminds us that there’s more to the world than just making do and having a bit of fun.”
- Charles de Lint
