    Markus Zusak
    A small but noteworthy note. I've seen so many young men over the years who think they're running at other young men. They are not. They are running at me.
    Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

    J.R.R. Tolkien
    War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.
    J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers
