Jonathan Barnes Quotes

"The city defeated him. It refused to be bent into shape; it stayed a willful, sprawling, sinful place. It even told him as much.

When he got to his feet and dusted himself down he saw that it read, in Latin, Resurgam -- I Will Rise Again."

Quotes About Selfhood

"The event of falling in love is of such a nature that we are right to reject as intolerable the idea that it should be transitory. In one high bound it has overleaped the massive of our selfhood; it has made appetite itself altruistic, tossed personal happiness aside as a triviality and planted the interests of another in the centre of our being. Spontaneously and without effort we have fulfilled the law (towards one person) by loving our neighbour as ourselves. It is an image, a foretaste, of what we must become to all if Love Himself rules in us without a rival. It is even (well used) a preparation for that." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Circle Getting Smaller

"Peter sighed into the water, and his breath sent a small circle of it into tiny ripples. "It seems cowardly, getting old. Dont you think?" She rolled onto her side to look at him, pillowing her ear with her right arm, and letting her fingers dangle in the water beyond her head. "How is it cowardly?"Peter kept his eyes on his reflection. "You just curl up around yourself, and sit by the fire, and try to be comfortable. When you get old, you just get smaller inside, and you try not to pay attention to anything but your blankets and your food and your bed.""Being comfortable is not a bad thing."Peter shrugged and turned his head to look at her as if it was a matter of fact. "Of course it is. Old people lock out all the scary, wild things. Its like they dont exist." She wanted to say that she would have liked for those things not to exist, either, but she held her tongue, because she didnt want to sound like a coward." - Author: Jodi Lynn Anderson

Quotes About Recovering From A Broken Heart

"She had told Erstwhile too much in the past, and thus he knew that occasionally she did go crazy. Sometimes it was when she felt particularly trapped or hopeless, or when the tunnels were unusually dark or stuffy, or when she got stuck in a crawl-through. Sometimes it happened for no obvious reason at all. She would feel a terrible panic tightening her chest and giving her heart a queasy lollop, she would be fighting for breath . . . and then she would be recovering somewhere, shuddering and sick, devastation around her and her fingernails broken from clawing at the rock walls and ceilings." - Author: Frances Hardinge
