Text Quotes
I want a simple, ordinary life . . . like humans enjoy  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) I’m a storyteller, and I have really good material to work with: I’ve been studying magic and the occult since about 1983.  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) Within days they’d formed an unholy alliance with a foppish young French vampire in the Garden District who had implausibly golden hair and a streak of ruthlessness as wide as the Mississippi  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed (Albert Einstein)  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) I’d studied 16th century science and magic. I thought it was strange that people were interested in the same kinds of things my research was about. The more I thought about it, the more intriguing it became and pretty soon I was writing a novel about a reluctant witch and a 1500-year-old vampire  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) Witches are the kind of more traditional, home and family, craft people - so they’re the ones who are making things; crocheting shawls and things like that. But then they also have that slightly confident, dangerous, edge. I always see them as having very extreme hair, either amazingly beautiful straight hair or kind of wild.  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) If the butterfly wings its way to the sweet light that attracts it, it’s only because it doesn’t know that the fire can consume it.  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) Cheap wine is defined by its price, and it depends on personal spending limits. So for me, any wine under $10 is cheap.  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) My niece was very much caught up in the vampire craze for young adults, and she thought having a vampire boyfriend would be a cool thing. What do you do on a first date? The more I thought about it, the more fun I had imagining what you’d serve a vampire for dinner.  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) There were no vampires of note in Western literature until about the 18th century. But they tell us where we park our anxieties, whether its over-powerful women, death or damnation. We make our own monsters.  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) For me, a $20 wine that drinks like a $40 wine in terms of complexity and interest is a value, while a $5 wine that is not very good is not a value at all in my opinion.  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) A lot of our assumptions of the world are fairly cynical, fairly negative, and assume the worst. What our reading tastes show - in this rush to fantasy, romance, whatever - is that we actually still want to believe in a world of possibility, in a world of mystery.  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) Memories were short and history unkind. It was the way of the world  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) Sorry, we’ve got ghosts  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) I want a simple, ordinary life... like humans enjoy  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) Her bark is worse than her bite  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) Just because something seems impossible doesn’t make it untrue  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) And happiness is always louder than sadness  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) The first requirement of war: allies must not kill each other  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) As fast as I can tell there are only two emotions that keep the world spinning year after year... One is fear. The other is desire  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) If the butterfly wings its way to the sweet light that attracts it, it’s only because it doesn’t know that the fire can consume it  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) My ideas about vampires may by romantic, but your attitudes toward women need a major overhaul  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) We kissed each other, long and deep, while my legs opened like the covers of a book  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) You persist in this romantic vision of what it is to be a vampire, but despite my best efforts to curb it I have a taste for blood  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) Yes, I see that you are behaving like a prince but that doesn’t mean you won’t behave like a devil at the first opportunity  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) These days vampires gravitated toward particle accelerators, projects to decode the genome, and molecular biology. Once they had flocked to alchemy, anatomy, and electricity. If it went bang, involved blood, or promised to unlock the secrets of the universe, there was sure to be a vampire around  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) I saw the logic that they used, and the death of a thousand cuts as experimental scientists slowly chipped away at the belief that the world was an inexplicably powerful, magical place. Ultimately they failed, though. The magic never really went away. It waited, quietly, for people to return to it when they found the science wanting  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) She was like a camera that had been chronically out of focus until someone came by and twisted the lenses into alignment  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) That evening, rowing on the quiet river as sunset turned to dusk, I saw an occasional smoky smudge on the towpath, always slightly ahead of me, like a dark star guiding me home  (Deborah Harkness Quotes) It begins with absence and desire. It begins with blood and fear. It begins with a discovery of witches  (Deborah Harkness Quotes)
