Charles Beaumont Quotes

"A cold wind raced across the surrounding fields of wild grass, turning the land into a heaving dark-green ocean. It sighed up through the branches of cherry trees and rattled the thick leaves. Sometimes a cherry would break loose, tumble in the gale, fall and split, filling the night with its fragrance. The air was iron and loam and growth. He walked and tried to pull these things into his lungs, the silence and coolness of them.But someone was screaming, deep inside him. Someone was talking. ("Hunger")"

Quotes About Stealing My Heart

"Cocky little king. You assume youre the only one that gives me satisfaction?"His smile widens as he lifts one of my arms and kisses the sensitive skin of my wrist. "If there is something in this world that can please you more than me," he says, his warm breath caressing my skin, "then Ill be extra diligent in my duties tonight, my queen. Indulge me with every sensation that gives you pleasure, and I will match it and more."Whatever retort was on my tongue vanishes, his heated words stealing all reason from my mind. Only one lingers: queen. Hearing him refer to me as his intended opens my heart like the sea opens to the sky, and I am his." - Author: Trisha Wolfe

Quotes About Cheia

"Era uma vez um rapaz. Vivia numa aldeia que já não existe, numa casa que já não existe, na orla de um campo que já não existe, lugar de todas as descobertas e onde tudo era possível. Um pau podia ser uma espada. Uma pedra podia ser um diamante. Uma árvore um castelo.Era uma vez um rapaz que vivia numa casa do outro lado do campo onde vivia uma rapariga que já não existe. Inventavam mil jogos. Ela era a Rainha e ele o Rei. Na luz do Outono, o cabelo dela brilhava como uma coroa. Bebiam o mundo em pequenas mãos-cheias. Quando o céu escurecia, apartavam-se com folhas nos cabelos." - Author: Nicole Krauss

Quotes About Belgariad

"Operating by trial and error mostly, weve evolved a tacitly agreed upon list of the elements that make for a good fantasy. The first decision the aspiring fantasist must make is theological. King Arthur and Charlemagne were Christians. Siegfried and Sigurd the Volsung were pagans. My personal view is that pagans write better stories. When a writer is having fun, it shows, and pagans have more fun than Christians. Lets scrape Horaces Dulche et utile off the plate before we even start the banquet. Were writing for fun, not to provide moral instruction. I had much more fun with the Belgariad/Malloreon than you did, because I know where all the jokes are.All right, then, for item number one, I chose paganism. (Note that Papa Tolkien, a devout Anglo-Catholic, took the same route.)" - Author: David Eddings
