"Only the phoenix rises and does not descend. And everything changes. And nothing is truly lost."
"When I was a child, adults would tell me not to make things up, warning me of what would happen if I did. As far as I can tell so far, it seems to involve lots of foreign travel and not having to get up too early in the morning."
"Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you. And sometimes, when you fall, you fly."
"And if there's a moral there, I don't know what it is, save maybe that we should take our goodbyes whenever we can."
"It is astonishing just how much of what we are can be tied to the beds we wake up in in the morning, and it is astonishing how fragile that can be."
"Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up."
"Most books on witchcraft will tell you that witches work naked. This is because most books on witchcraft were written by men."
"He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it."

"So many things to see, people to do."
"To absent friends, lost loves, old gods, and the season of mists; and may each and every one of us always give the devil his due."
"Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot."
