„Děti. Musíte je mít rádi. Já se jich nemůžu nabažit. Trošku soli, pokapat citronem - dokonalé.“ Storm Front

„Cítil jsem, že ze mě Mab nespouští oči. Já Tweetie, ona Sylvester. To přirovnání mi zvedlo náladu. Obecně vzato, Tweetie nakonec vždycky Sylvestrovi nakope prdel.“


„When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching -- they are your family.“

„Are you always a smartass?'

Nope. Sometimes I'm asleep.“
Blood Rites

„Paranoid? Probably. But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean there isn't an invisible demon about to eat your face.“ Storm Front

„I don't care about whose DNA has recombined with whose. When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching--they are your family.“ Proven Guilty

„Evil isn’t the real threat to the world. Stupid is just as destructive as Evil, maybe more so, and it’s a hell of a lot more common. What we really need is a crusade against Stupid. That might actually make a difference.“ Vignette

„Sure, we'd faced some things as children that a lot of kids don't. Sure, Justin had qualified for his Junior de Sade Badge in his teaching methods for dealing with pain. We still hadn't learned, though, that growing up is all about getting hurt. And then getting over it. You hurt. You recover. You move on. Odds are pretty good you're just going to get hurt again. But each time, you learn something.

Each time, you come out of it a little stronger, and at some point you realize that there are more flavors of pain than coffee. There's the little empty pain of leaving something behind - gradutaing, taking the next step forward, walking out of something familiar and safe into the unknown. There's the big, whirling pain of life upending all of your plans and expecations. There's the sharp little pains of failure, and the more obscure aches of successes that didn't give you what you thought they would. There are the vicious, stabbing pains of hopes being torn up. The sweet little pains of finding others, giving them your love, and taking joy in their life they grow and learn. There's the steady pain of empathy that you shrug off so you can stand beside a wounded friend and help them bear their burdens.

And if you're very, very lucky, there are a very few blazing hot little pains you feel when you realized that you are standing in a moment of utter perfection, an instant of triumph, or happiness, or mirth which at the same time cannot possibly last - and yet will remain with you for life.

Everyone is down on pain, because they forget something important about it: Pain is for the living. Only the dead don't feel it.

Pain is a part of life. Sometimes it's a big part, and sometimes it isn't, but either way, it's a part of the big puzzle, the deep music, the great game. Pain does two things: It teaches you, tells you that you're alive. Then it passes away and leaves you changed. It leaves you wiser, sometimes. Sometimes it leaves you stronger. Either way, pain leaves its mark, and everything important that will ever happen to you in life is going to involve it in one degree or another.“


„Life is a journey. Time is a river. The door is ajar“ Dead Beat

„Laugh whenever you can. Keeps you from killing yourself when things are bad. That and vodka.“ Changes

„Anger is just anger. It isn't good. It isn't bad. It just is. What you do with it is what matters. It's like anything else. You can use it to build or to destroy. You just have to make the choice."

Constructive anger," the demon said, her voice dripping sarcasm.

Also known as passion," I said quietly. "Passion has overthrown tyrants and freed prisoners and slaves. Passion has brought justice where there was savagery. Passion has created freedom where there was nothing but fear. Passion has helped souls rise from the ashes of their horrible lives and build something better, stronger, more beautiful.“
White Night

„We are not going to die."

Butters stared up at me, pale, his eyes terrified. "We're not?"

"No. And do you know why?" He shook his head. "Because Thomas is too pretty to die. And because I'm too stubborn to die." I hauled on the shirt even harder. "And most of all because tomorrow is Oktoberfest, Butters, and polka will never die.“
Dead Beat


„I had to smile at the man. I mean, you have to smile at idiots and children.“ Fool Moon

„There is a primal reassurance in being touched, in knowing that someone else, someone close to you, wants to be touching you. There is a bone-deep security that goes with the brush of a human hand, a silent, reflex-level affirmation that someone is near, that someone cares.“ White Night

„We have now left Reason and Sanity Junction. Next stop, Looneyville.“ Grave Peril

„Sleep is God. Go worship.“ Death Masks
