James Shapiro Quotes

"[Henry James] essays closing lines can either be read neutrally or as a more purposeful wish that this mystery [of Shakespeares authorship] will one day be resolved by the criticism of the future: The figured tapestry, the long arras that hides him, is always there ... May it not then be but a question, for the fullness of time, of the finer weapon, the sharper point, the stronger arm, the more extended lunge? Is Shakespeare hinting here that one day critics will hit upon another, more suitable candidate, identify the individual in whom the man and artist converge and are one? If so, his choice of metaphor - recalling Hamlets lunge at the arras in the closet scene - is fortunate. Could James have forgotten that the sharp point of Hamlets weapon finds the wrong man?"

"For a moment she was truly terrified. This was Abbadon the Cruel. The Angel of Destruction. He could and would destroy her if he had to. If he felt like it. He had destroyed worlds before. He had decimated Paradise in the name of the Morningstar.She trembled in his grasp.All his gentleness, all his kindness, all the bright shining gorgeousness of his love, he had always given tosomeone else. He had adored Gabrielle, had worshiped her, had written her poems and sang her songs, and for Schuyler there were novels and love notes and sweet kisses and furtive tender meetings by a fireplace.But for his twin, Azrael, he had shown nothing but his anger and violence. His strength and destruction.He saved the best of himself for those who did not deserve it. Never showed his true face to those damnable Daughters of the Light.For Azrael, there was only darkness and annihilation.Rape and carnage.War and pillage.A tear escaped from her eye and glittered in the moonlight." - Author: Melissa de la Cruz

Kind. Loyal. Funny and smart, great in bed but not kinky. A lover in his head and in his body. A man who doesnt think as a dick-obsessed monkey with a brain the size of a testicle, but one who is thoughtful and can hold his emotions in one hand and hug you close with the other. A man who is a hunky, manly man but who can talk to you like your best girlfriend, because thats what he wants to be for you. Your best friend."(Page 44)" - Author: Cathy Lamb
