"In one aspect, yes, I believe in ghosts, but we create them. We haunt ourselves."
Laurie Halse Anderson, Wintergirls.
"Such lonely, lost things you find on your way. It would be easier, if you were the only one lost. But lost children always find each other, in the dark, in the cold. It is as though they are magnetized and can only attract their like. How I would like to lead you to brave, stalwart friends who would protect you and play games with dice and teach you delightful songs that have no sad endings. If you would only leave cages locked and turn away from unloved Wyverns, you could stay Heartless."
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making
