Something to re-read over and over

"“Love her, love her, love her! If she favours you, love her. If she wounds you, love her. If she tears your heart to pieces – and as it gets older and stronger, it will tear deeper – love her, love her, love her!” "

Creepy Characters That Will Make You Shudder (10 books items)

"Dolge Orlick. He works at Joe's forge, he is rude, crude, and spends his time ogling Biddy from afar. He also happens to be dangerous as after a fight with Pip's older sister he tries to kill her by hitting her in the back of the head with a pair of rusty manacles. She survives only to become a drooling, non-sensible vegetable. "
