There would be no sequel to the sadness.
— Salvador Plascencia, from The People of Paper
(via the-final-sentence)
 
"Any combustion, regardless of intensity, must ultimately extinguish. Some fires last only for the strike of the flint, while others burn for millions of years before the day of their supernova arrives, leaving only embers and cold debris. And so love need not burn forever, just long enough for paper to smolder."
- The People of Paper, Salvador Plascencia

I don’t think the ‘what’ distinguishes a good novel from a bad one but rather the ‘how.’

In the land of Ingary, where such things as seven-league boots and cloaks of invisibility really exist, it is quite a misfortune to be born the eldest of three.

1984 (by LauraJSwindle)
Canadian writers as a whole do not trust Nature. They are always suspecting some dirty trick.
A novel worth reading is an education of the heart. It enlarges your sense of human possibility, of what human nature is, of what happens in the world. It’s a creator of inwardness.
