Jim Butcher
“Isana laughed. "And you, lady? Are you a woman of conscience or of ambition?"
The lady smiled. "That's a question rarely asked here at court."
"And why is that?"
"Because a woman of conscience would tell you that she is a person of conscience. A woman of ambition would tell you that she is a person of conscience—only much more convincingly.”
Jim Butcher, Academ's Fury

Leo Tolstoy

Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

“I make little account of victory. Nothing is so stupid as to vanquish; the real glory is to convince.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Thomas Henry Huxley
“Wherever sufficiently numerous series of the remains of any given group, which has endured for a long space of time, are carefully examined, their morphological relations are never in discordance with the requirements of the doctrine of evolution, and often afford convincing evidence of it. At the same time, it has been shown that certain forms persist with very little change, from the oldest to the newest fossiliferous formations; and thus show that progressive development is a contingent, and not a necessary result, of the nature of living matter.”
Thomas Henry Huxley, The Advance of Science in the Last Half-Century

A.G. Howard
“I rake my hands across his biceps and down his pecs. Water and sand crumble to shimmery, granular trails along his chest hair in my wake. As I touch him, his breath catches and his long, dark eyelashes close in exquisite agony.
I splay my fingertips and open my palm to match his cigarette burns to my scars. His muscles answer with tiny twitches, every part of him strong where I’m soft.
“Jeb.”
He opens his eyes and we lock gazes.
“This is why we fit. Because we’re both damaged, in a way that can’t be healed.
A.G. Howard, Ensnared

Will Advise
“Imagination is the ability to produce new ideas without the need of time to stop and actually think about it. I'll produce elevator buttons - I bought that business from Jarod Kintz, who was only selling it, because he found a new, more profitable job – male prostitution (he’s selling his grandpa’s services, not his own, because his own are virtually non-existent – he’s a monk now, and monks are sworn to celibacy, you know, or should, by now). Buy now - grieve later. Two 5th floor buttons for your floorless cardboard-built tree house, for the price of one, 7-story tall tree, which, for the purpose of this story we’ll call Nathan. Nathan sends you its best regards and wishes you a happy, silent, well-watered-down life, which, coming from a tree isn’t really that much, however, as you know - trees aren’t regular customers in the land of walking and talking, and it took quite a lot of convincing to make him come over and say that. Meow.”
Will Advise, Nothing is here...

Bryant McGill
“Never let anyone convince you of anything negative about yourself unless it is for your own betterment.”
Bryant McGill, Simple Reminders: Inspiration for Living Your Best Life

“What's the difference between hot and cold cereal? Why can't all cereals get along?”
Ean Rodriguez

Alex Morritt
“Casting a curious gaze down on planet Earth, extra-terrestrial beings could well be forgiven for assuming that we humans are programmed in every move we make, by a palm-sized, oblong, slab of glass. More perplexing than that, who on earth could convince them otherwise ?”

David Wong

Elizabeth Gaskell, Ruth

James C. Dobson
“Given these differences between the sexes, the sexual revolution was the biggest joke men ever played on women. By convincing them that the old rules didn’t apply and that two could play the predator game, men enticed women to do what men have always wanted women to do. But what a price was paid for the new “freedom.” And predictably, women were the ones who got stuck with the bill.”
James C. Dobson, Life on the Edge: The Next Generation's Guide to a Meaningful Future

Amit Kalantri
“People enjoy convincing others, if others are wrong they convince them towards right, if others are already right they still want to convince them towards wrong.”
Amit Kalantri
