"You will live in this world as though it is real, and then you will know, as I do, that all your adventures and all your possessions, and all your losses, and what you have loved--this gold, this bread, the green glass sea--were things you dreamed as surely as you dreamed of buffalo and watercress."
--J Winterson, The Power Book
"...for love is the mortal enemy of death. Love is death's twin, born in the same moment, each fighting for mastery, and if death takes all, love would do the same. Yet it is easier to die than to love."
"Death will shatter me, but in love's service I have been shattered many times." --J Winterson, The Power Book
