November 17: Top Ten Quotes I Loved From Books I Read In The Past Year Or So.
1. Welcome to Night Vale; Jeffrey Cranor & Joseph Fink. “…the problem with fair questions is that they are asked about an unfair world.”
2. You’re Never Weird on the Internet; Felicia Day. “…don’t chase perfection for perfection’s sake, or for anyone else’s sake at all. If you strive for something, make sure it’s for the right reasons. And if you fail, that will be a better lesson for you than any success you’ll ever have. Because you learn a lot from screwing up. Being perfect . . . not so much.”
3. Fragile Things & Short Fictions; Neil Gaiman. “Hearts may break, but hearts are the toughest of muscles, able to pump for a lifetime, seventy times a minute, and scarcely falter along the way. Even dreams, the most delicate and intangible of things, can prove remarkably difficult to kill.”
4. Ancillary Mercy; Ann Leckie. “Everything ending is from another angle, not really an ending.”
5. A Red-Rose Chain; Seanan McGuire. “Change sucks. No one’s going to argue about that. Change is hard and painful and sometimes we wind up losing things we wanted to keep forever.”
6. Dumplin‘; Julie Murphy. “I guess sometimes the perfection we perceive in others is made up of a whole bunch of tiny imperfections, because some days the damn dress just won’t zip.”
7. The Shepherd’s Crown; Terry Pratchett. “…YOU HAVE LEFT THE WORLD MUCH BETTER THAN YOU FOUND IT, AND IF YOU ASK ME, said Death, NOBODY COULD DO ANY BETTER THAN THAT. . .”
8. Carry On; Rainbow Rowell. “You have to pretend you get an endgame. You have to carry on like you will; otherwise, you can’t carry on at all.”
9. The Emperor’s Soul; Brandon Sanderson. “You can’t always write what you know—not exactly what you know. You can, however, write what you see.”
10. Seveneves; Neal Stephenson. “Fighting isn’t about knowing how. It’s about deciding to.”
