„Navštěvují ji starší, osaměle působící muži, a když jim vaří, domem se šíří octový zápach. Napadlo mě, že je možná zaživa nakládá, pěkně jednoho po druhém.“

„Skutečné tragédie nejsou sporem mezi dobrem a zlem, ale mezi dvěma dobry.“ Vytržení


„Everyone said that one day I was going to have a big accident, an accident to end all accidents. One day you might look up and see a kid falling from the sky. That would be me.“ The Ninth Life of Louis Drax

„Hangovers are a vivid form of vengeance. Last night my apartment became the venue for a small, introverted chardonnay festival. A melancholy choir of Bulgarians provided the entertainment, via a set of headphones that ended up irredeemably tangled beneath the bed. Part of me just watched. The other part was in charge.“ The Rapture

„A mixture of feelings- love, distaste, revulsion, pity- rose in my throat…There was an eternity to that moment, that see-sawing split- second when adoration clung and then lurched, spilling into chaos, rage, hate, anger: the desire to smash and embrace, love and destroy. Betrayal does that…Shows you how worthless love is, when its object is indifferent, ruthless, no more than a machine for surviving.“ The Ninth Life of Louis Drax

„The thought of losing him again kills me. This is of course a figure of speech, I will remain alive, but I will not know happiness.“ The Uninvited

„Lord, What a terrible shame. You're so attractive!'
I know, I want to tell her. It should have happened to someone really ugly. And then it wouldn't have mattered.“
The Rapture

„To some extent. Men want to think the best of women, especially if they’re attractive. Isn’t there some truth in that? That we attribute moral goodness to attractive people? And to those who present themselves as victims? Natalie“ The Ninth Life of Louis Drax


„Carpe Dium, I say. Seize the day. Grab it by the throat and rattle its bollocks“ Ark Baby

„Men let women down. Over and over again. I'ts what they're programmed to do.“

„Outside, the moon is a thin, luminous scrape and the stars throb weakly above the sea.“ The Uninvited

„In my sleepwalking years, I learned the existence of another dimension. I do not inhabit it any longer. But somehow, it continues to inhabit me.“ The Ninth Life of Louis Drax


„I think we make a big mistake about ghosts,’ he said suddenly. ‘We think they are from the past. We think they are all dead. But they are alive. And some of them are not even born yet. They are travellers.’ ‘Travellers?“ The Uninvited

„You plant a seed thinking it's love. It's only when the thing starts putting down roots that you realise it's not growing the way it should. But by then it's too late. It has sprouted foliage, blossomed and borne demented fruit.
What do you do with the sickness in you?“
The Ninth Life of Louis Drax

„I’ve thought a lot about hope and come to the conclusion that either it’s there or it isn’t. No in between. You“ The Ninth Life of Louis Drax

„Will it take the rest of my life to process what has happened? I don't know.

If Freddy were here, he would say, 'Yet', as per the rules of a playful accord we have concerning unacquired knowledge, whereby if one of us said they didn't know something, the other had to say 'Yet'. And then the other one--usually me--would provide the missing information, or we'd look it up, or just speculate.“
The Uninvited
