Robin McKinley | Weekly Quote 26

Mulluane | Thursday, November 06, 2014 | 4 Comments so far

“Cats were often familiars to workers of magic 

because to anyone used to wrestling with 

self-willed, wayward, devious magic

--which was what all magic was--

it was rather soothing to have all the same qualities wrapped

 up in a small, furry, generally attractive bundle that...might,

 if it were in a good mood, sit on your knee and purr. 

Magic never sat on anybody's knee and purred.”

-- Robin McKinley, Spindle's End --

About: This is a weekly feature here in the old belfry. The quote is Robin McKinley's. The background cat line art is by QuincyAllain. (Thank you Quincy for making this free to use!) The remainder of the design, along with any flaws, is mine. 

If you would like to suggest a quote (I prefer it be from a SFF author) let me know in the comments and I'll see what I can do. No promises though. If a quote is too big I may not be able to reproduce it in the space available. I do promise to try though!

    1. LOL, I have 2 indoor cats and three outside farm cats that used to be feral. Note I said used to be :>P When I was searching for quotes I passed this one several times, worried about its length, but I kept going back. This one was just meant to be, lol!
