„I'm one of those people who has to write.“

—  Libba Bray
Twenty-One Things You Don't Know About Me, Context: I'm one of those people who has to write. If I don't write, I feel itchy and depressed and cranky. So everybody's glad when I write and stop complaining already.

„My favorite word is "redemption." I like both its meaning and the sound.“

—  Libba Bray
Twenty-One Things You Don't Know About Me, Context: My favorite word is "redemption." I like both its meaning and the sound. My least favorite word is "maybe." "Maybe" is almost always a "no" drawn out in cruel fashion.

„These are hard times. The world hurts.“

—  Libba Bray, Going Bovine
Going Bovine (2009), Context: These are hard times. The world hurts. We live in fear and forget to walk with hope. But hope has not forgotten you. So ask it to dinner. It's probably hungry and would appreciate the invitation. p. 428

„You’ve been assigned an identity since birth.“

—  Libba Bray, Going Bovine
Going Bovine (2009), Context: You’ve been assigned an identity since birth. Then you spend the rest of your life walking around in it to see if it really fits. You try on all these different selves and abandon just as many. But really it’s about dismantling all that false armor, getting down to what’s real. p. 253

„And just like that, something in the cosmos shifts. A butterfly flaps its wings in South America. Snow falls in Chicago. You give an idiot a stupid magic screw and it turns out to be a necessary part after all.“

—  Libba Bray, Going Bovine
Going Bovine (2009), Context: Marisol does a silly dance with Balder and the screw, one in each hand, so that nobody gets the idea that she takes tins — or anything else, for that matter — seriously. And just like that, something in the cosmos shifts. A butterfly flaps its wings in South America. Snow falls in Chicago. You give an idiot a stupid magic screw and it turns out to be a necessary part after all. p. 389

„People always think they know other people, but they don’t. Not really.“

—  Libba Bray, Going Bovine
Going Bovine (2009), Context: People always think they know other people, but they don’t. Not really. I mean, maybe they know things about them, like they won’t eat doughnuts or they like action movies or whatever. But they don’t know what their friends do in their rooms alone at night or what happened to them when they were kids or if they feel fucked up and sad for no reason at all. p. 178
