The Wishmonger's voice was so deep it seemed almost the shadow of sound: a dark sonance that lurked in the lowest resister of hearing.“I don't know many rules to live by,' he'd said. 'But here's one. It's simple. Don't put anything unnecessary into yourself. No poisons or chemicals, no fumes or smoke or alcohol, no sharp objects, no inessential needles--drug or tattoo--and...no inessential penises either.'
'Inessential penises?' Karou had repeated, delighted with the phrase in spite of her grief. 'Is there any such thing as an essential one?'
'When an essential one comes along, you'll know,' he'd replied.
"Stop squandering yourself,child. Wait for love."
Gosh. I love her adopted father Brimstone (the Wishmonger) and this makes me want so scream this particular quote (especially at the end) to everyone... This quote --- so true. Also, if you haven't read the book, do so. It was one of my Top Ten of 2011.
