Literary Lines–July 9

“After all, words are what remain when all the deeds have been done.  Words can shatter faith, start a war, change the course of history.  A story can make your heart beat faster, topple walls, scale mountains–Hey, a story can even raise the dead.  And that’s why the King of Stories ended up being King of the gods, because writing history and making history are only the breadth of a page apart.”

–from page 27 of Joanne M. Harris’s The Gospel of Loki
