Caribbean Blue Quote I

If every man says all he can,
If every man is true.
Do I believe the sky above
Is Caribbean blue?

If all you told was turned to gold,
If all you dreamed was new.
Imagine sky high above
In Caribbean blue.

-Caribbean Blue by Enya

Step with care and great tact
And remember that Life's
A Great Balancing Act.

Robinson Crusoe Quote I

From whence I have often since observed, how incongruous and irrational the common temper of mankind is, ecspecially of youth, to that reason which ought to guide them in such cases, viz., that they are not ashamed to sin, and yet are ashamed to repent; not ashamed of the action, for which they ought justly to be esteemed fools; but are ashamed of the returning, which only can make them be esteemed wise men.

-Robinson Crusoe, Daniel Defoe

Song of the Ghost Quote I

When all were dreaming
But Pastheen Power,
A light went streaming
From out of her bower;
And on the morrow,
When they awoke,
They knew that sorrow
Her heart had broke.

-Song of the Ghost, Alfred Percival Graves

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane Quote V

"I don't care if anyone comes for me," said Edward.
"But that's dreadful," said the old doll. "There's no point in going on if you feel that way. No point at all. You must be filled with expectancy. You must be awash in hope. You must wonder who will love you, whom you will love next."
"I’m done with being loved," Edward told her. "I’m done with loving. It’s too painful."
"Pish," said the old doll. "Where is your courage?"
"Somewhere else, I guess," said Edward.
"You disappoint me," she said. "You disappoint me greatly. If you have no intention of loving or being loved, then the whole journey is pointless."

-The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, Kate DiCamillo

The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma Quote I

This was yet another reason for her bitterness. Few things infuriated Constance more than being ignored, and having her existence denied struck her as the worst insult imaginable.
