Even George, who she's known since her thirteenth summer, is no longer immune to her charms. His interest is different, he knows her and understands her pain and the fragile state of her emotions even while he can’t resist her new look and attitude.

Great Quotes on Writing

"It took me fifteen years to discover I had no talent for writing, but I couldn't give it up because by that time I was too famous."
- Robert Benchley

"I think there are two types of writers, the architects and the gardeners. The architects plan everything ahead of time, like an architect building a house. They know how many rooms are going to be in the house, what kind of roof they're going to have, where the wires are going to run, what kind of plumbing there's going to be. They have the whole thing designed and blueprinted out before they even nail the first board up. The gardeners dig a hole, drop in a seed and water it. They kind of know what seed it is, they know if planted a fantasy seed or mystery seed or whatever. But as the plant comes up and they water it, they don't know how many branches it's going to have, they find out as it grows. And I'm much more a gardener than an architect."
- George R.R. Martin

"I realize that some of you may have come in hopes of hearing tips on how to become a professional writer. I say to you, "If you really want to hurt your parents, and you don't have the nerve to be a homosexual, the least you can do is go into the arts. But do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites, standing for absolutely nothing. All they do is show you've been to college."
- Kurt Vonnegut

The first draft of anything is shit.
- Ernest Hemingway

"And what, you ask, does writing teach us? First and foremost, it reminds us that we are alive and that it is a gift and a privilege, not a right."
- Ray Bradbury
