Whatever will happen will happen, but choose your companions with care. Choose them because you like to look at them and you like the sound of their voices, and they have profound secrets in them that you wish to know. In other words, choose them because you love them. Otherwise you will not be able to bear their company for very long. - Anne Rice, The Vampire Lestat #book #quotes

Otherwise you will not be able to bear their company for very long. (Anne Rice, The Vampire Lestat)

Happy 72nd birthday, Anne Rice!

“None of us really changes over time. We only become more fully what we are.” All Hail the Queen, Anne Rice

Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion.

"The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places. But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater." ~ Tolkien (quote for tattoo)
