“So, what’s it like being so…”

Cassie: “So, what’s it like being so wise?”
Azazeal: “Well…obviously, it makes normal life difficult.  The trouble is, you see everything before everyone else, and then you have to wait for them to catch up.”
Cassie: “That must be very frustrating.”
Azazeal: “You’ve no idea.”
–Cassie Hughes (played by Christina Cole) to Azazeal (Michael Fassbender)

This is one in a series of quotations.

I’ve been working, from time to time, on a book of quotations for many years.  I call it, “The Mind Boggles”, from one of my favorite quotations.  I do source quotations a bit differently from a lot of people.  In the case of a work of a fiction, I consider that the character said the line…not the author.  As a bit of an author myself (in a minor way), I can tell you…my characters definitely say things that I would never say.  These are all quotations that I’ve collected myself: I’ve read the book, seen the TV episode, and so on. 

Hope you enjoy them!
