Martha Elizabeth "Libba" Bray (March 11, 1964) is an American writer of young adult novels including the Gemma Doyle Trilogy, Going Bovine, and The Diviners.
He loved her. Was in love with her. Had always loved her. And it seemed that she loved him, too. It was funny how the world could change on a dime like that. One minute, you were some poor chump pining after a girl you thought didn't feel the same way about you, and the next, you were lying together, arms entwined, chest to chest, so close you could feel her heartbeat under her soft skin. You were looking into her eyes and seeing your whole future written there.
—Libba Bray in Before the Devil Breaks You
People always think they know other people, but they don't. Not really. I mean, maybe they know things about them, like they won't eat doughnuts or they like action movies or whatever. But they don't know what their friends do in their rooms alone at night or what happened to them when they were kids or if they feel sad for no reason at all.
And that is how change happens. One gesture. One person. One moment at a time.
—Libba Bray in The Sweet Far Thing
Your path will change. Your destiny doesn't.
Once an object has been incorporated in a picture it accepts a new destiny.
The ancient saying is no heresy, hanging and wiving goes by destiny.
