“All stories are about wolves. All worth repeating, that is. Anything else is sentimental drivel…. Think about it. There’s escaping from the wolves, fighting the wolves, capturing the wolves, taming the wolves. Being thrown to the wolves, or throwing others to the wolves so the wolves will eat them instead of you. Running with the wolf pack. Turning into a wolf. Best of all, turning into the head wolf. No other decent stories exist.”—Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin (via lebed)
'I know something that a unicorn cannot know. Whatever can die is beautiful - more beautiful than a unicron who lives forever, and who is the most beautiful creative in the world. Do you understand me?'
'No,' the unicorn said.
The magician smiled wearily. ‘You will. You’re in the story with the rest of us now, and you must go with it, whether you will or no.’
