Do not stand at my grave and weep,

I am not there, I do not sleep,

I am a thousand winds that blow,

I am the diamond glints on the snow,

I am the sun on ripened grain,

I am the gentle autumn rain,

When you awaken in the morning's hush,

I am the swift uplifting rush…

Of quiet birds in circling flight.

I am the soft starlight at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,

I am not there; I did not die.

~Mary Elizabeth Frye

"The storyteller may fall silent, the music may cease, but the story will not end. Be it tragedy or comedy, as long as there is applause, the story will not end. It is just like the multitude of human lives. Warm blessing to we who were not rewarded, and we who are still on our way. Our travels continue on."

~Fate/stay night: Realta Nua Last Episode Epilogue

"Do not fear the premonitions of the defeated. Though imperfect and difficult, the journey ahead never leads to a dead end."

"The shards of your shattered dreams have not lost their meaning. Make with them a mosaic upon which a brighter tomorrow can be seen."

~Mark Zhang

"Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They're fans, but they're not silent, couch bound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language."

~Lev Grossman

"The Gods envy us. They envy us because we are mortal, because every moment may be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we're doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again."

~Homer (The Iliad)

"I want to swim in both directions at once. Desire success, court failure."

"The point about a great story is that it has a beginning, middle, and an end."

"And it's a human need to be told stories. The more we're governed by idiots and have no control over our destinies, the more we need to tell stories to each other about who we are, why we are here, where we come from, and what might be possible. Or what's impossible? What's a fantasy?"

~Alan Rickman

"I find it helps to see life as being like a book: Just as a book is bounded by its covers, by beginning and end, so our lives are bounded by birth and death, and even though a book is limited by beginning and end, it can encompass distant landscapes, exotic figures, fantastic adventures. And even though a book is limited by beginning and end, the characters within it know no horizons. They only know the moments that make up their story, even when the book is closed. And so the characters of a book are not afraid of reaching the last page. Long John Silver is not afraid of you finishing your copy of 'Treasure Island.'"
