A Quote by Neil Gaiman on neil gaiman, coraline, cats, and rats

The cat dropped the rat between its two front paws.  "There are those," it said with a sigh, in tones as smooth as oiled silk, "who have suggested that the tendency of a cat to play with its prey is a merciful one -- after all, it permits the occasional funny little running snack to escape, from time to time.  How often does your dinner get to escape?"

But he didn't understand the price. Mortals never do. They only see the prize. Their heart's desire, their dreams...But the price of getting what you want is getting what you once wanted.

Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts  are dust and ashes, and forgot.

"You mourn, for it is proper to mourn.
But your grief serves you; you do not
become a slave to grief.

You bid the dead farewell,
and you continue."
