1. "Nuori tyttö, mörkö, hirviö, taiteen murhaaja.Nuori tyttö niin kuin hän todellisuudessa on.Pieni hölmö ja pikku paskiainen; kertakaikkisen typeryyden ja kertakaikkisen turmeltuneisuuden sekoitus.Nuoressa tytössä on kaikki sakilaisen ja koulupojan viheliäiset piirteet."
Author: Charles Baudelaire
2. "She reached for his wrist, clutched it. "How do I look?""Hurt. Pained. Destroyed.""If I could look into your eyes, what would I see in them, Iain?""Devastation. Shame for what I was.

Tears," he said, and pressed his face to hers so she could "see" them. "Because I know it is truly over now that the truth is out, and I don't know how I'm going to live without you. Forgive me," he whispered, then stole a kiss from her lips. "Forgive me, and the boy I was, and the man I turned out to be."

"Isabelle is my sister-in-law," he snapped. "I'll show Judith the way."Iain had opened the door, and stood there listening to the argument.

Author: Julie Garwood

Author: Julie Garwood

17. "No one had Ramsey's patience, Brodick thought to himself. Gideon obviously didn't know his laird well, for if he did, he would have known that under that thin layer of civility and diplomacy beat the heart of a savage warrior whose temper put Brodick's to shame. Unlike Brodick, Ramsey was slow to ignite, but once he had reached his limit or had been prodded too far, his reaction was explosive and most impressive. He could be far more brutal than Brodick, and perhaps that was one of the reasons they had become such good friends. They trusted each other. Aye, Brodick trusted and admired Ramsey as much as he trusted and admired the man who had trained them to be leaders, Iain Maitland."
Author: Julie Garwood

Though the superstitions of the heathen were a thousand times stronger than they are, and the example of the Europeans a thousand times worse; though I were deserted by all and persecuted by all, yet my faith, fixed on the sure Word, would rise above all obstructions and overcome every trial. God's cause will triumph. (William Carey, quoted in Iain Murray, The Puritan Hope, Banner of Truth 1971, p 140.)"
