The Graveyard Book quotes

by Sami Bennett

“You’re always you, and that don’t change, and you’re always changing, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”

“If you dare nothing, then when the day is over, nothing is all you will have gained.”

“We who make stories know that we tell lies for a living. But they are good lies that say true things, and we owe it to our readers to build them as best we can. Because somewhere out there is someone who needs that story. Someone who will grow up with a different landscape, who without that story will be a different person. And who with that story may have hope, or wisdom, or kindness, or comfort. And that is why we write.”

“Really, he thought, if you couldn’t trust a poet to offer sensible advice, who could you trust?”

― Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book
