„А ну брыcь с подушки, Таффи. Тебе что, позволяют валяться на диване?

Прошу прощения! Этот батюшка что, не заметил, с кем разговаривает? И чем я должен заниматься, по его мнению? Полы драить? Печатать на компьютере? Вскапывать грядки?“
The Diary of a Killer Cat

„Yesterday, when we were packing, Julius asked me,

"If you could rub Tulip out of your past life, would you do it?"

And I had to shake my head. I can't regret the times we had together. Sometimes I worry I won't have times like that again, that there will be no lit nights, no incandescent days. But I know it's not true. There can be colour in a million ways. I know I'll find it on my own.“
The Tulip Touch


„People aren't locked doors. You can get through to them if you want.

But no one did. No one reached out a hand to Tulip. Nobody tried to touch her. I hear them whispering and they sicken me. 'Bus seats!' grumbles Mrs Bodell. 'Locker doors!' complain the teachers. 'Chicken sheds!' say the farmers. 'Greenhouses! Dustbins!' moan the neighbours. And Mum says, 'A lovely old hotel!'

But what about Tulip?
I shall feel sorry for Tulip all my life.
And guilty, too.
Guilty.“
The Tulip Touch

„Living your life is a long and doggy business.... And stories and books help. Some help you with the living itself. Some help you just take a break. The best do both at the same time.“ Goggle-Eyes

„Guests stay where you've put them, and carry on doing whatever you suggested they do, until you suggest they stop and do something else. If you leave them drinking a cup of tea and looking through your holiday slides, they're supposed to sit tight till you ask them to come string and beans in your kitchen.“ Goggle-Eyes

„I hate it when people insist on wrangling with you about something, then try to stop as soon as they see the arguments are no longer going all their way.“ Goggle-Eyes

„I'll tell you one thing I learned from studying History, Kitty. As soon as you see your opponents are reduced to insulting you personally, you know you're on the way to victory.“ Goggle-Eyes

„There are all sorts of different families, Katie. Some families have one mommy, some families have one daddy, or two families. And some children live with their uncle or aunt. Some live with their grandparents, and some children live with foster parents. And some live in separate homes, in separate neighborhoods, in different areas of the country - and they may not see each other for days, or weeks, months... even years at a time. But if there's love, dear... those are the ties that bind, and you'll have a family in your heart, forever.“ Madame Doubtfire
