Quotes by Gregory Maguire

"People who claim that they're evil are usually no worse than the rest of us... It's people who claim that they're good, or any way better than the rest of us, that you have to be wary of."

"Remember this: Nothing is written in the stars. Not these stars, nor any others. No one controls your destiny."

"Happy endings are still endings."

"Where I'm from, we believe in all sorts of things that aren't true... we call it history."

"Books fall open, you fall in. When you climb out again, you're a bit larger than you used to be."
