quote SPOILER ALERT! 2014-10-17 23:24
"I see you have found that book," he said, tail flicking backwards and forwards as he spoke. "Take care you do not read too much."

"I've already read it all, anyway," replied Sabriel, shortly.

"Perhaps," remarked the cat. "But it isn't always the same book. Like me, it's several things, not one."

Ursaless, the Queen of the Bears, had said it straight: 'Sometimes I recall oddments without even trying.'
Who knows when memory, unbidden, will burst out and take hostages?
...The future reshapes the memory of the past in the way it recalibrates significance: some episodes are advanced, others lose purchase.

quote 2014-02-08 15:36
Vain as a child, thin as a stork's leg, and, in her black glasses, blind as an owl in daylight. She misses her footing on the social ladder at least three times a week, only to start climbing again, wriggling her pelvis all the while. She clasps her dead, white hands beneath her chin in the high hope of hiding the flatness of her chest.
Gormenghast - Quentin Crisp,Mervyn Peake

Irma Prunesquallor, described by Mervyn Peake at the beginning of the second book of the Gormenghast series.

i had to stop reading and laugh. How perfectly delightful! This quote illustrates how well Fiona Shaw captured the character of man-hungry Prunesquallor.
