Popular Quotes

“Anything designed to be inoffensive isn’t worth your time — life itself is pretty offensive, ending as it does with death.”
― Holly Lisle

 “Race doesn’t exist.

Skin color exists. Hair and eye color are real. Body type varies from individual to individual, as does tooth shape and color, the form of fingernails, and the amount and texture of body hair. But ‘race’ is a phantom conjured up by people no different from each other than purebred Cocker spaniels are. Race is a lie, and the people who conjure by it, no matter their color or their politics, are liars.”
― Holly Lisle, Hunting the Corrigan’s Blood

“I had come to discover that “safe” was an illusion, a pretense that adults wrapped around their children- and sometimes themselves- to make the world seem comfortable. I had discovered that under that thin cover of let’s-pretend, monsters and nightmares lay, and that not all of them came from places like the moonroads or the nightling cities. Some of the monsters were people we knew. People we thought we could trust.”
― Holly Lisle, The Silver Door

 “How did you do it?” he wanted to know. “Enchanted arrows? Spell of exploding flesh? Rain of fire? No, not that. The worm would be cooked and we would be eating it. Wand of destruction? Oh, a wand of destruction would be a find, fine thing.” He turned to me. “Speak up, girl.”
I hit him with your skillet. A lot.”
― Holly Lisle, The Ruby Key

 “Guilt is a good friend, isn’t it? It will stand at your back when every other friend has abandoned you, and in the face of all reason it will stay by your side, and even when you tell it, “I am moving on now,” it will say, “I shall never leave you; never.”
If only I could find a lover as faithful as guilt.”
― Holly Lisle, Talyn

 “Adventures are only interesting once you’ve lived to see the end of them. Before that, they are nothing but fear, and being too cold or too hot or too wet or too hungry, and getting hurt.”
― Holly Lisle, The Silver Door

“If you have dreams you want to pursue, the time is now. There is no perfect time, and there is no better time. There is only the time you lose while you’re making excuses.”
― Holly Lisle, Gods Old and Dark

 “I have never yet figured out what to do about good advice that you get, and that you know right away would help you, but that you cannot follow.”
― Holly Lisle, The Silver Door

“Willful ignorance and endless laws become the replacement for self-education and self-restraint, because ignorance and laws are easy.”
― Holly Lisle, Diplomacy of Wolves

“A voice speaks to each of us in the still silent places – a voice that tells us to stand, to have courage, to do what is right.”
― Holly Lisle, Diplomacy of Wolves

One Final Bonus – Holly Lisle Quote 

“Fiction—good fiction, anyway—is dream made flesh, given purpose and drive, and set on a quest to show us the best in us and to give us the power and the tools to dream beyond reality’s ‘merely good enough’ to a vision of what is truly great…

…and then to give us the stories of men and women of character who in turn inspire those of us who dare to reach for the truly great within ourselves.

THAT is why you write fiction.”
― Holly Lisle
