Chris Lester Quotes

"Misty bit her lip — or at least that was what it looked like with the glamour. Kate could only imagine what she was doing with that mouth full of fangs. How do I know I can trust him? Or you?Kate rose to her feet. You dont. You never do, with people. Some things, you have to take on faith. She turned and headed for the door, then paused and looked back. I dont know how much you know about humans. Im just guessing here, but we probably seem like a bunch of violent, paranoid, back-stabbing monkeys. ‘Cause we are. But the thing is … sooner or later, we all find ways to trust each other, even though we might get burned doing it.Mistys lip curled into a sneer. Because deep down inside, humans are all noble creatures that want to rise above their natures, right?Oh, hell no, Kate said. Its just better than facing the darkness alone.Then she turned and walked out, leaving the dumbstruck Misty behind her."

Will Wiles Quotes

"My sensitive soul was no longer held down by heavy chains of duty and distraction -- it would now (I had theorized) take wing. But I was gripped by a kind of dull horror.

Myrtle Reed Quotes

"The hearts seasons seldom coincide with the calendar. Who among us has not been made desolate beyond all words upon some golden day when the little creatures of the air and meadow were life incarnate, from sheer joy of living? Who among us has not come home, singing, when the streets were almost impassable with snow, or met a friend with a happy, smiling face, in the midst of a pouring rain?"

Matthew Pearl Quotes

Quotes About Speaking In Tongues

"I nevertheless understood at that second the ancient obsession of the God-fearing for another kind of fear: the thrill of exorcism, the mindless whirl of Dervish possession, and the almost erotic surrender of seance, speaking in tongues, and Zen Gnostic trance. I realized at that instant just how surely the affirmation of demons or the summoning of Satan somehow can affirm the reality of their mystic antithesis -the God of Abraham." - Author: Dan Simmons
