Libba Bray Quotes

"I just read this great quote by Junot Diaz, he was talking about true intimacy, and he was saying that it was the willingness to be vulnerable and to be found out. Thats what I felt that YA did. It wasnt pretentious, and it wasnt hiding its heart. It wanted to be found out...It felt like those moments when you go to a party and youre standing around for a long time, going, I dont fit in here, what am I going to talk to these people about? And everybodys getting drunk, and then you find this one person, and you end up sitting in some corner talking about all these arcane things.And then before you know it youre having a conversation about the meaning of life and its four oclock in the morning. That kind of feeling, that kind of intimacy — I felt like thats what I got from YA."

Billy Collins Quotes

Li Young Lee Quotes

"A door jumpsout from shadows,then jumps away. Thisis what Ive come to find:the back door, unlatched.Tooled by insular wind, itslams and slamswithout meaningto and without meaning."

Quotes About Intangible Things

"The unreal is more powerful than the real. Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on. If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. Thats the only lasting thing you can create." - Author: Chuck Palahniuk

He tends to wear hats with feathers in. You will discover he is very vain. But, if you can avoid smacking him, you will come to tolerate if not love him. He will contrive, in some cowardly way, to play a major part in saving the world." - Author: Diana Wynne Jones
