Susan Cooper

  • The hope is always here, always alive, but only your fierce caring can fan it into a fire to warm the world.

  • Any great gift of power or talent is a burden ... But there is nothing to be done. If you were born with the gift, then you must serve it, and nothing in this world or out of it may stand in the way of that service, because that is why you were born and that is the Law.

  • So the shortest day came, and the year died, / And everywhere down the centuries of the snow-white world / Came people singing, dancing, / To drive the dark away ...

    • Susan Cooper,
    • "The Shortest Day," Seaward ()
