being brave doesn’t mean you aren’t scared. Being brave means you are scared, really scared, badly scared, and you do the right thing anyway.

Now, you people have names. That’s because you don’t know who you are. We know who we are, so we don’t need names.

Her mother made her come back inside for dinner, and for lunch; and Coraline had to make sure she dressed up warm before she went out, for it was a very cold summer that year; but go out she did, exploring, every day until the day it rained, when Coraline had to stay inside.

“Calling cats,” it confided, “tends to be a rather overrated activity. Might as well call a whirlwind.”

“Cats don’t have names,” it said.
“No?” said Coraline.
“No,” said the cat. “Now, you people have names. That’s because you don’t know who you are. We know who we are, so we don’t need names.”

CORALINE DISCOVERED THE DOOR a little while after they moved into the house.

It was a very old house—it had an attic under the roof and a cellar under the ground and an overgrown garden with huge old trees in it.

Coraline’s family didn’t own all of the house—it was too big for that. Instead they owned part of it.

There were other people who lived in the old house.

Miss Spink and Miss Forcible lived in the flat below Coraline’s, on the ground floor. They were both old and round, and they lived in their flat with a number of ageing Highland terriers who had names like Hamish and Andrew and Jock. Once upon a time Miss Spink and Miss Forcible had been actresses, as Miss Spink told Coraline the first time she met her

CORALINE a descoperit ușa puțin după ce s-au mutat în casă.

Era o casă foarte veche - avea un pod sub acoperiș și o pivniță sub pământ și o grădină prea mare cu copaci uriași și bătrâni în ea.

Familia lui Coraline nu deținea toată casa, era prea mare pentru asta. În schimb, au deținut o parte din ea.

Mai erau și alți oameni care locuiau în vechea casă.

Dra Spink și Dra Forcible locuiau în apartamentul de sub Coraline, la parter. Erau amândoi bătrâni și rotunzi, și locuiau în apartamentul lor cu un număr de Terrieri Din Highland îmbătrâniți care aveau nume ca Hamish, Andrew și Jock. A fost odată ca niciodată, Dra Spink și Dra Forcible au fost actrițe, așa cum i-a spus Dra Spink lui Coraline prima dată când a întâlnit-o.

It is astonishing just how much of what we are can be tied to the beds we wake up in in the morning, and it is astonishing how fragile that can be.

It wasn’t the kind of rain you could go out in—it was the other kind, the kind that threw itself down from the sky and splashed where it landed. It was rain that meant business, and currently its business was turning the garden into a muddy, wet soup.

Fairy tales are more than true: not because
they tell us that dragons exist, but because
they tell us that dragons can be beaten.
