„Balder holds up a completely blank rune. Wyrd. The beginning and the end. Fate.“

—  Libba Bray, Going Bovine

Quelle: Going Bovine (2009), p. 338

I don't know what that means, but it's not doing anything to uncreep me.

„Here is our favorite equation: Us plus Them equals All of Us. It is very simple math. Try it sometime.“

—  Libba Bray, Going Bovine

Quelle: Going Bovine (2009), p. 428
Kontext: In our travels, we have come across many equations — math for understanding the universe, for making music, for mapping stars, and also for tipping, which is important. Here is our favorite equation: Us plus Them equals All of Us. It is very simple math. Try it sometime. You probably won’t even need a pencil.

„People always think they know other people, but they don’t. Not really.“

—  Libba Bray, Going Bovine

Quelle: Going Bovine (2009), p. 178
Kontext: People always think they know other people, but they don’t. Not really. I mean, maybe they know things about them, like they won’t eat doughnuts or they like action movies or whatever. But they don’t know what their friends do in their rooms alone at night or what happened to them when they were kids or if they feel fucked up and sad for no reason at all.

„My favorite word is "redemption." I like both its meaning and the sound.“

—  Libba Bray

Twenty-One Things You Don't Know About Me
Kontext: My favorite word is "redemption." I like both its meaning and the sound. My least favorite word is "maybe." "Maybe" is almost always a "no" drawn out in cruel fashion.

„And just like that, something in the cosmos shifts. A butterfly flaps its wings in South America. Snow falls in Chicago. You give an idiot a stupid magic screw and it turns out to be a necessary part after all.“

—  Libba Bray, Going Bovine

Quelle: Going Bovine (2009), p. 389
Kontext: Marisol does a silly dance with Balder and the screw, one in each hand, so that nobody gets the idea that she takes tins — or anything else, for that matter — seriously. And just like that, something in the cosmos shifts. A butterfly flaps its wings in South America. Snow falls in Chicago. You give an idiot a stupid magic screw and it turns out to be a necessary part after all.
