Book Quotes #4 - April

I haven't found that many quotes in the books I have read this month, and the majority of the quotes for this month come from Jane Steele which was a great read full of dark humour: 

 
1) "Isn't that what stories do, make real things fake and fake things real?"
The Winners Curse by Marie Rutkoski
 
2) “I hope that the epitaph of the human race when the world ends will be: Here perished a species which lived to tell stories.
We tell stories to strangers to ingratiate ourselves, stories to lovers to better adhere us skin to skin, stories in our heads to banish the demons. When we tell truth, often we are callous; when we tell lies, often we are kind. Through it all, we tell stories, and we own an uncanny knack for the task.”
  
Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye
 
3)“There is no practice more vexing than that of authors describing coach travel for the edification of people who have already travelled in coaches. As I must adhere to form, however, I will simply list a series of phrases for the unlikely reader who has never gone anywhere:”  
Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye
