“It is absolutely necessary, for the peace and safety of mankind, that some of earth’s dark, dead corners and unplumbed depths be left alone; lest sleeping abnormalities wake to resurgent life, and blasphemously surviving nightmares squirm and splash out of their black lairs to newer and wider conquests.”
“I think about Lenaya and Hugh. Will they know how much I’ve changed this year? Will they have changed too? I’ll wait until tomorrow to find out. And then it’s possible I won’t find out after all. Because some changes happen deep down inside of you. And the truth is, only you know about them. Maybe that’s the way it’s supposed to be.”
Judy Blume, Tiger Eyes
Thanks for the submission! :)

“Others may write from the head, but he writes from the heart, and the heart will always understand him.”
“Deryn felt brilliant, rising through the air at the center off everyone’s attention, like an acrobat aloft on a swing. She wanted to make a speech: ‘Hey, all you sods, I can fly and you can’t! A natural airman, in case you haven’t noticed. And in conclusion, I’d like to add that I’m a girl and you can all get stuffed!’”
I started listening to this book and then ran out of time! I definitely want to read it, though- and I’ll be sure to look for quotes for it!
