Words of Wisdom from Neil Gaiman (2007-09-05 - 4:44 p.m.)

Today, just some interesting quotes from a book I'm reading. Fiction, at that.

I've become a big Neil Gaiman fan of late, and am currently reading his novel, Anansi Boys. The man is obsessed with "pseudo-gods," for lack of a better term. Anansi also has a large role in his earlier book, American Gods, which is much darker.

Anansi Boys is hilarious, much like Gaiman's collaboration with Terry Pratchett, Good Omens.

Anyway, I've run across some lines in the book that are interesting. So, here they are.

"A song can last long after the events and the people in it are dust and dreams and gone. That's the power of songs."--Pg. 2

"Each person who ever was or is or will be has a song. It isn't a song that anybody else wrote. It has its own melody, it has its own words. Very few people get to sing their own song. Most of us fear that we cannot do it justice with our voices, or that our words are too foolish or too honest, or too odd. So people live their songs instead."--Pg 189

"It's easier to say true things in the dark."--Pg. 248

I really like that last one.

Well, that's all for this one.

TTFN, y'all
