Which Witch? Quote I

"Hallo!" said a soft and musical voice above his head, and Terence, looking up, saw the most beautiful girl he had ever seen--a girl he would have been frightened of except that her blue eyes looked sad, and sadness was something Terence knew about.

A Twist in My Story Quote I

So you see
This world doesn't matter to me.
I'll give up all I had just to breathe
The same air as you do till the day that I die.
I can't take my eyes off of you.

The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey Quote I

"What's the point of any of this?" Crawlings said irritably. "He can't stop all of us and he knows it."
"He wants to give the children a head start," said McCracken. "But Crawlings's point is well taken, don't you think, Milligan? Really, now. You're wasting everyone's time. What's the use of prolonging the inevitable?"
"Maybe I enjoy it," Milligan said.

The Star of Kazan Quote I

The Viennese really liked to eat. Wonderful cooking smells wafted through the streets--vanilla and freshly ground cofee; cinnamon and sauerkraut. Even cucumber salad, which in other cities hardly smelled at all, had its own scent in Vienna.

A Beginning, a Muddle, and an End Quote II

"What will you write?"
"That's my biggest worry. I'm afraid I've not had an exciting life."
"Then write about what you haven't done."
"Is that allowed?" asked Avon.
"You should know the number one rule about writing is: Write what you know. So if you know what you haven't done, write about that."

-A Beginning, a Muddle, and an End, Avi
