9. "I looked anxiously around me: the present, nothing but the present. Furniture light and solid, rooted in its present, a table, a bed, a closet with a mirror-and me. the true nature of the present revealed itself: it was what exists, and all that was not present did not exist.

Now I knew: things are entirely what they appear to be-and behind them... there is nothing."

Involuntary urination is common, I grant, but it properly flows from a sense of terror, not an ecstatic sense of hero worship."

You'll probably end up on a book tour, or bagging an honorary degree or two."
Author: N.D. Wilson

Fiery and sweet, all at the same time. A flame in the dark, lighting my way." His voice... his words... I recognized one of his spirit-driven moments. It should've unnerved me, but there was something sensual about the way he spoke, something that made my breath catch. A flame in the dark. He swapped out the silver paintbrush for a black one. Before I could stop him, he wrote over the heart: AYE. Underneath it, in smaller letters, he added: HONORARY MEMBER."
Author: Richelle Mead
