Quotes About Sleeping Without You

"Then welcome, you poor things! Im so gald youre here! I never get to talk to anyone except when Im working, and then Im supposed to say things like, Woe is me and Beware and Uncle Rupert is going to die. And then they look at me like I have two heads, which I dont because Im not a troll , and they always say, Oh, no, the banshee is here! Do you know how that makes me feel? Every time I show up, people run screaming and warn everybody else that Im around. Believe me, Ive thought about staying home and sleeping late, but I cant because I care about people. Without me to warn them, people would die unexpectedly, and then where would their relatives be? When I tell them, they have time to make arrangments, say good-bye...you know-important things. Im actually a very nice person; its just that no one gives me a chance to prove it." - Author: E.D. Baker

Quotes About Conjuring

"I felt in my bones; first, that this world does not explain itself. It may be a miracle with a supernatural explanation; it may be a conjuring trick, with a natural explanation. But the explanation of the conjuring trick, if it is to satisfy me, will have to be better than the natural explanations I have heard. The thing is magic, true or false. Second, I came to feel as if magic must have a meaning, and meaning must have some one to mean it. There was something personal in the world, as in a work of art; whatever it meant it meant violently. Third, I thought thispurpose beautiful in its old design, in spite of its defects, such as dragons." - Author: G.K. Chesterton
