Words

“There is something about words. In expert hands, deftly manipulated, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic.”

–Margaret Lea
(Diane Setterfield, The Thirteenth Tale)
