[But The Boy Protected Yorda From The Shadows-that-walk-alone. He Took Her Hand, Defended Her, Swung His Thin Arm, And Fought With His Tiny Frame, Driving Them Back. If The Shades Dragged Her Into Their Realm, She Would Once Again Become A Prisoner, And The Boy Would Turn To Stone, A Sad Adornment In The Castle. Yorda Knew This. But The Boy Did Not--even As He Did Not Know That Yorda Was The Property Of The Queen Of The Castle--and He Protected Her.]

"Not specifically. "Demons have been on Earth as long as we have. Theyre all over the world, in their different forms – Greek daemons, Persian daevas, Hindu asuras, Japanese oni.

Quotes About Discussing Religion

"{Wells discussing his experiences with Christianity}I realised as if for the first time, the menace of these queer shaven men in lace and petticoats who had been intoning, responding, and going through ritual gestures at me. I realised something dreadful about them. They were thrusting an incredible and ugly lie upon the world and the world was making no such resistance as I was disposed to make to this enthronement of cruelty. Either I had to come into this immense luminous coop and submit, or I had to declare the Catholic Church, the core and substance of Christendom with all its divines, sages, saints, and martyrs, with successive thousands of believers, age after age, wrong....I found my doubt of his essential integrity, and the shadow of contempt it cast, spreading out from him to the whole Church and religion of which he with his wild spoutings about the agonies of Hell, had become the symbol. I felt ashamed to be sitting there in such a bath of credulity." - Author: H.G. Wells

Quotes About Feeling Free And Happy

"The fatal combination of indulgence without feeling disgusts me. Strange to be both greedy and dead. For myself, I prefer to hold my desires just out of reach of appetite, to keep myself honed and sharp. I want the keen edge of longing. it is so easy to be a brute and yet it has become rather fashionable. Is that the consequence of leaving your body to science? Of assuming that another pill, another drug, another car, another pocket-sized home-movie station, a DNA transfer, or the complete freedom of choice that five hundred TV channels must bring, will make everything all right? Will soothe the nagging pain in the heart that the latest laser scan refuses to diagnose? The doctors surgery is full of men and women who do not know why they are unhappy. "Take this", says the Doctor, "youll soon feel better." They do not feel better, because, little by little, they cease to feel at all." - Author: Jeanette Winterson
