Quotes about bell


1. I have faith that God will show you the answer. But you have to understand that sometimes it takes a while to be able to recognize what God wants you to do. That's how it often is. God's voice is usually nothing more than a whisper, and you have to listen very carefully to hear it. But other times, in those rarest of moments, the answer is obvious and rings as loud as a church bell.
- Nicholas Sparks, The Last Song

2. It's a reflex. Hear a bell, get food. See an undead, throw a knife. Same thing, really.
- Ilona Andrews, Magic Bites

3. After that, the book will fade, the way all books fade in your mind. But I hope you will remember this:A man walking fast down a dark lonely street. Quick steps and hard breathing, all wonder and need. A bell above a door and the tinkle it makes. A clerk and a ladder and warm golden light, and then: the right book exactly, at exactly the right time.
- Robin Sloan, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore
