But if you really looked, Rhan thought. If you looked beyond the powers and the villains and the plots to take over the universe. There was just a guy. Somebody who was alone, who'd been cut off from other people by disaster or birth. There was just a guy who wanted so bad to make things right.

 an Anti-Valentine quote:

A.A. Milne - The House at Pooh Corner
"What did you say it was?" he asked.
"Ah!" said Eeyore.
"He's just come," explained Piglet.
"Ah!" said Eeyore again.
He thought for a long time and then said:
"When is he going?"

This is the opening line to Stormbreaker, the first novel in the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz:

"When the doorbell rings at three in the morning, it's never good news."

I totally agree!--  Sherrie Petersen

This submission was GREAT, but longish-- almost the whole story-- but I trimmed it to this wonderful concluding verse--Donna Farley)
Here's a quote from a Debi Gliori picture book, she writes and illustrates and is based in Edinburgh - my hero!
"No Matter What" by Debi Gliori

'Small, look at the stars - how they shine and glow, but some of those stars died a long time ago.
still they shine in the evening skies
love, like starlight, never dies.'
Makes me well up, every - single - time. :-)
