Sea Witch and Song of the Faerie Prince Favourite Quotes

Sea Witch

“The sea is a fickle witch. She is just as likely to bestow a kiss as to steal the breath from your lips. Beautiful and cruel, and every glimmering wrinkle in between. Filling our bellies and our coffers when she is generous. Coolly watching as we don black and add tears to her waters when she is wicked. Only the tide follows her moods—giving and taking at the same salty rate. Still, she is more than our witch—she’s our queen.”

Mother. The land that gives us bounty. The sea that brings us our supper as much as coins in our pocket. She is more than a goddess—she is us. Havnestad. And all the people within it. Without her, we are nothing. No magic can trick her. No words can ply her. No will can sway her. She is queen, and we are simply her subjects.”

“when everything is as you hoped, you are blind to the imperfections.”

“though magic can shape life and death, love is the one thing it cannot control.

The Song of the Faerie Prince

“Life’s more fun when you’re weird.”

“I know what if feels like to constantly fight with yourself, to feel like the world’s going to invalidate your existence the second you step outside. It hurts a little to watch you go through it too. You shouldn’t have to wait to just live until you’re some arbitrary definition of ‘right.’ Live and do what you can as you are. That’s what I try to do, anyway. I don’t know what else to tell you past that.”

“No, if you just let yourself live, you’d be happy. You’re in charge of that. Not a bunch of stupid standards, not people who aren’t bringing anything into your life. You. It’s hard, yeah, but it’s better than making yourself miserable all the damn time.”

“You’re going to encounter a lot of different titles and labels in your life. They are yours to control, regardless of how you come by them. The minute you let them control you is the minute you let people control you, and they’re not the right kind of people either. They’re people who don’t care how you see yourself in the world; they’re people who are more interested in their own comfort. You can’t live for them, Gia. You’ll just make yourself miserable. You being happy, safe, and extending that respect to others is more important.”
