Discussable Quotes from The Witch of Maracoor:
"Any witch worth her ginger is at least somewhat immortal", p. 5

"One of the milestones of growing up is when we realize we can be done with living for others. Early on, we pay respect to the parents who gave us life by staying alive and living fully for them. Making their sacrifices worth it. I certainly labored under that belief for decades. But eventually we come round: we owe it to ourselves to live just as much as we owe it to anyone else.", p.166
