But isn’t that hazardous—messing with events?
Lawhead quotes
His last thought, as sleep overtook him, was that it was true what Cosimo had said: the universe was far stranger than anyone imagined, or could imagine.
Lawhead
These dimensions impinge on one another. They touch. They interpenetrate. And where one dimension touches or passes through another, it forms a line of force on the landscape.




Lawhead Stephen R. quotes
Alea iacta est. The die has been cast.
Lawhead Stephen R.
Even well-known words were often pronounced differently and could have unfamiliar meanings; connotations were not fixed, but fluid. Definitions drifted. He was constantly brought up short by the sudden realization that what he thought he had said was not at all what he meant—at least as it had been understood by his hearers. Still, he was coming to grips with the slippery speech, and his confidence was growing.
Stephen R. Lawhead quotes
You’re changing the course of history. I thought that sort of thing was strictly forbidden.
Stephen R. Lawhead
A favourite saying in China—which she had heard on occasion from her own grandmother—was that the threads of life are easy to weave, but difficult to untangle.
Lawhead Stephen R. quotes
Getting lost is the least of your worries.
Lawhead
“None of us ever knows what impact we have on the world around us.”
Lawhead Stephen R.
If her hunch was right, the earl’s explorations were connected in some way to ley travel: that peculiar phenomenon that had plucked her from the twenty-first century and dropped her so rudely into the seventeenth.
Stephen R. Lawhead
You see, this universe we inhabit is made up of billions of galaxies—literally beyond counting—and this is only one universe.




Stephen R. Lawhead quotes
We in our present generation stand on the cusp of a new and glorious dawn when mastery of these energies lies fully within our grasp as secret yields to inquiry, which yields to experimentation, which leads to verification and duplication, which, in the final course, leads to knowledge.
Stephen R. Lawhead
You really don’t want to get lost.
Lawhead quotes
“Contrary to what many may think, immortality is not a fairy tale invented to compensate for an unhappy life.”
Lawhead Stephen R.
Early man recognised these lines of force and marked them out on the landscape with, well, any old thing, really—standing stones, ditches, mounds, tumps, sacred wells, and that sort of thing. And, later on, with churches, market crosses, crossroads, and whatnot.
Lawhead Stephen R. quotes
See here, if a simple act of kindness or generosity, such as buying a loaf of bread for some poor working women, can mean that wholesale death and destruction will be avoided—why, a man would be a monster who had it in his power to alleviate all that suffering yet stood by and did nothing.
Stephen R. Lawhead
A ley line is what might be called a field of force, a trail of telluric energy. There are hundreds of them, perhaps thousands, all over Britain, and they’ve been around since the Stone Age.
Stephen R. Lawhead quotes
You spend too much time alone, too much time watching television, and too little time cultivating the inner man. You live in a squalid little flat in what is referred to as a no-go zone from which your friends, of whom you see less and less, have all fled for the suburbs long ago with wives and sprogs in tow. You are exceedingly unlucky in love, having invested years in a romantic relationship which, as you know only too well, is neither romantic nor much of a relationship. In short, you have all the social prospects of a garden gnome.
Stephen R. Lawhead
Jump blind and you might find yourself on the rim of a raging volcano, or smack in the middle of a battlefield during a savage war, or on a swiftly tilting ice floe in a tempest-tossed sea.
Lawhead Stephen R.
The air crackled with the presage of lightning, and a heavy mist descended around them.
