Quotes Challenge: Diana Wynne Jones

Milae from LifeExperimentalBlog has challenge me with the 3 Day Quote Challenge. Head on over to Milae’s blog for some great quotes for this time of month, and for some really cool ideas for you to experiment with.

Here’s how the quote challenge works:

There are 3 Challenge rules:

You need to post for 3 days in a row
You must pick 1-3 quotes daily
In each post, you must challenge 3 bloggers

Today, I nominate:

The Drawing Page
Miss Sixteen
DRandomgirl

I’m terrible at remembering quotes from classic texts and such, but having been an avid bookworm during my most formative years and beyond, I’ve decided to quote the wise words of one of my favourite authors.

Diana Wynne Jones’ fantasy books are what got me through what would have been a painfully boring and unmagical childhood otherwise. Her words have stuck with me through holidays, physics classes, and a heart-break or two. And like so many of us who grew up on Eight Days of Luke, and Fire and Hemlock, I still run over to Ingary or smirk through Witch Week when I get my hands on them.

There’s much that I could share, but here are three of my all-time favourites:
