1. "Dollars to doughnuts there's no fruit dip," he murmured behind me.Would Mo do that to me not five minutes after I asked her not to push me at anything?Fucking A. Of course she would. I was the fruit dip, apparently.I backed out of the fridge, hanging my head with a sigh. "For Mo, that was extremely subtle.""She's got a gift." Jace leaned against the counter beside the fridge and crossed his arms over his chest, looking me over. "How are you, Topher?""Good. Good. Fine. How have you been?" I retreated a few paces, mirroring his posture against the island chopping block opposite him."I've been good. Really good, in fact, though I'm wondering if you would rather I weren't here.""What?" I blinked rapidly. "Why would I— Why would you think that?"The corner of his mouth quirked up in a wry smile. "Because this is the first time you've met my eyes since I arrived, and if I were a vampire, you'd be thrusting garlic and a cross at me right now."

2. "During the persecutions under the Emperor Domitian, John was summoned to Rome, where he was tortured by immersion in a pot of boiling oil and subsequently banished to the island of Patmos in the Aegean sea. It was there he wrote his Apocalypse. It was only after the death of Domitian, in A.D. 96, that he returned to Ephesus, where he was still living during the reign of the Emperor Trajan (A.D. 98-117). He became so old and frail that he could no longer walk and had to be carried to meetings and services. All he could manage to say was, "My little children, love one another." He repeated this over and over."

4. "As you go down the water,' he said, ‘you will find that the trees will fail, and you will come to a barren country. There the River flows in stony vales amid high moors, until at last after many leagues it comes to the tall island of the Tindrock, that we call Tol Brandir. There it casts its arms about the steep shores of the isle, and falls then with a great noise and smoke over the cataracts of Rauros down into the Nindalf, the Wetwang as it is called in your tongue. That is a wide region of sluggish fen where the stream becomes tortuous and much divided. There the Entwash flows in by many mouths from the Forest of Fangorn in the west. About that stream, on this side of the Great River, lies Rohan. On the further side are the bleak hills of the Emyn Muil. The wind blows from the East there, for they look out over the Dead Marshes and the Noman-lands to Cirith Gorgor and the black gates of Mordor."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

8. "Shadows are created all around us whenever something blocks the light. And so it is with the shadow of doubt. When we focus on how inadequate we feel, or what others are thinking about us, we cast a shadow of doubt in our minds by blocking the light of God's truth in our hearts. Yet we were not designed to block the light or to be the light. We were created to live in the light, by finding our confidence in what God thinks about us."
Author: Renee Swope
9. "I took everybody, including the dog, for a ride, and we went around the block four or five times, congratulating one another upon our new mobility. I discovered that my former casual attitude of timid acquiescence was not consistent with someone who could drive a car, so I fell gradually into a new personality, swashbuckling and brazen, with a cigarette usually hanging out of one corner of my mouth because I had to keep both hands on the wheel."
Author: Shirley Jackson
