The Cold Hillside

“….men and fairies both contain within them a faculty of reason and a faculty of magic. In men reason is strong and magic is weak. With fairies it is the other way round: magic comes very naturally to them, but by human standards they are barely sane.”

(Susanna Clarke, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell)

“‘You make us want what we can’t have and what you give us is worth nothing and what you take is everything and all there is left for us is the cold hillside, and emptiness, and the laughter of the elves.’”

(Terry Pratchett, Lords and Ladies)
