Quotation Marks ...

Because the best quotations seem to sink into our blood in the most vital of places. Via
A few favorite quotes today. I've been deep-cleaning the house one room at a time, and my mind has been turning the pages of my favorites as I muddle along.
"If you take a book with you on a journey," Mo said when he put the first one in her box, "an odd thing happens: The book begins collecting your memories. And forever after you have only to open that book to be back where you first read it. It will all come into your mind with the very first words: the sights you saw in that place, what it smelled like, the ice cream you ate while reading it ... yes, books are like flypaper - memories cling to the printed page better than anything else." Cornelia Funke, Inkheart
"Beyond the Wild Wood comes the Wild World," said the rat. "And that's something that doesn't matter, either to you or to me. I've never been there, and I'm never going, nor you either, if you've got any sense at all." Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
Laura felt a warmth inside her. It was very small, but it was strong. It was steady, like a tiny light in the dark, and it burned very low but no winds could make it flicker because it would not give up. Laura Ingalls Wilder, The Long Winter
There is this weird thing that happens, when you stop worrying so much about what other people think of you ... you suddenly start seeing what you think of you. Adam Gidwitz, In a Glass Grimmly
And last, but certainly not least,
We're all mad here. The Cheshire Cat
Until tomorrow. ~Alice (aka jess)
