An Abundance of Quotes Part 18

"There is nothing...quite like the moral absolutism of the young. It's easy, as a child, to believe in good and evil, in light and dark.  Valentine never lost that-- neither his destructive idealism nor his passionate loathing of anything he considered 'nonhuman.'" - Cassandra Clare, City of Bones

“It is a curious thing, the death of a loved one. It’s like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark and thinking there is one more stair than there is. Your foot falls down through the air and there’s a sickly moment of dark surprise.” - Lemony Snicket

“You’re an interesting species. An interesting mix. You’re capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you’re not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we’ve found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other.” - Carl Sagan

"Never let your sense of morals get in the way of doing what's right." - Isaac Asimov

"If life had a second edition, how I would correct the proofs." - John Clare
