Cassandra Clare
“Whatever you are physically...male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy--all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

Rick Riordan
“The main courtyard was filled with warriors - mermen with fish tails from the waist down and human bodies from the waist up, except their skin was blue, which I'd never known before.Some were tending the wounded. Some were sharpening spears and swords. One passed us, swimming in a hurry. His eyes were bright green, like that stuff they put in glo-sticks, and his teeth were shark teeth. They don't show you stuff like that in "The Little Mermaid.”
Rick Riordan, The Last Olympian

Erin Hunter
“Warriors should suffer their pain silently.”
Erin Hunter, Into the Wild

Dan Millman
“A warrior does not give up what he loves, he finds the love in what he does”
Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives

Pittacus Lore
“I know what I'm capable of; I am a soldier now, a warrior. I am someone to fear, not hunt.”
Pittacus Lore, The Rise of Nine

R.A. Salvatore
“Luck?" Drizzt replied. "Perhaps. But more often, I dare to say, luck is simply the advantage a true warrior gains in excuting the correct course of action.”
R.A. Salvatore, The Halfling's Gem

Criss Jami
“To be heroic is to be courageous enough to die for something; to be inspirational is to be crazy enough to live a little.”
Criss Jami, Venus in Arms

P.C. Cast
“He's waiting for yu, young queen.'

Shocked, I stared at Seoras. 'Heath?'

The Warrior's look was wise and understanding - his voice gentle. 'Aye, yur Heath probably does await you somewhere in the future, but it is of your Guardian I speak.”
P.C. Cast, Awakened

“A warrior acknowledges his pain but he doesn't indulge in it.
The mood of the warrior who enters into the unknown is not one of
sadness; on the contrary, he's joyful because he feels humbled by
his great fortune, confident that his spirit is impeccable, and
above all, fully aware of his efficiency. A warrior's joyfulness
comes from having accepted his fate, and from having truthfully
assessed what lies ahead of him.”
― Don Juan Matus

Chögyam Trungpa
“If you are a warrior, decency means that you are not cheating anybody at all. You are not even about to cheat anybody. There is a sense of straightforwardness and simplicity. With setting-sun vision, or vision based on cowardice, straightforwardness is always a problem. If people have some story or news to tell somebody else, first of all they are either excited or disappointed. Then they begin to figure out how to tell their news. They develop a plan, which leads them completely away from simply telling it. By the time a person hears the news, it is not news at all, but opinion. It becomes a message of some kind, rather than fresh, straightforward news. Decency is the absence of strategy. It is of utmost importance to realize that the warrior’s approach should be simple-minded sometimes, very simple and straightforward. That makes it very beautiful: you having nothing up your sleeve; therefore a sense of genuineness comes through. That is decency.”
Chögyam Trungpa

“When one has nothing to lose, one becomes courageous. We are timid only when there is something we can still cling to.”
Don Juan

George R.R. Martin
“Every man should lose a battle in his youth, so he does not lose a war when he is old.”
George R.R. Martin, A Feast for Crows

“The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is
that a warrior takes everything as a challenge, while an ordinary
man takes everything as a blessing or as a curse.”
― Don Juan Matus

Donna Lynn Hope
“Warriors want a worthy opponent. There is no redress in fighting the pathetic.”
Donna Lynn Hope

C.S. Lewis
“Emeth came walking forward into the open strip of grass between the bonfire and the Stable. His eyes were shining, his face was solemn, his hand was on his sword-hilt, and he carried his head high. Jill felt like crying when she looked at his face. And Jewel whispered in the King's ear, "By the Lion's Mane, I almost love this young warrior, Calormene though he be. He is worthy of a better god than Tash.”
C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle

“The worst that could happen to us is that we have to die, and
since that is already our unalterable fate, we are free; those who
have lost everything no longer have anything to fear.”
― Don Juan Matus

Richard Marcinko
“Pain was their body's way of telling them that they'd pushed themselves to their limits -- which was exactly where they were supposed to be.”
Richard Marcinko, Rogue Warrior

Jarod Kintz
“I have the heart of a lion, and the circulatory system of a lamb.
”
Jarod Kintz, This Book Has No Title

Eiji Yoshikawa
“Fighting isn't all there is to the Art of War. The men who think that way, and
are satisfied to have food to eat and a place to sleep, are mere vagabonds. A
serious student is much more concerned with training his mind and disciplining
his spirit than with developing martial skills.”
Eiji Yoshikawa, Musashi

Tiffany Madison
“[On Female Attraction to Men in Uniform] That male military persona feeds a subconscious, passive-aggressive female desire to dominate the warrior as he is perceived an iconic example of masculinity (particularly amongst traditionally warlike cultures). The damsel in distress theme always struck me as embodying this: the hapless, innocently beautiful woman unwittingly enraptures the heroic male so completely that he would risk all to submit to her at his own peril, and quite in spite of it.”
Tiffany Madison

Tiffany Madison
“As a civilian, I know nothing about combat, the Marine Corps experience or modern man's struggle adjusting to peace after war. I only know what's been shared with me; confidences I would never betray, nor use as details in a novel.”
Tiffany Madison

“It is much easier for warriors to fare well under conditions of
maximum stress than to be impeccable under normal circumstances.”
― Don Juan Matus

“When you don't know what you want and don't know what you're doing, you spin around in circles, looking for excuses. And like a drill, if you spin around enough, you'll dig a pretty big hole.”
― Terry Masters

“Those who lack drama in their lives strive to invent it.”
― Terry Masters

Steven Pressfield
“The hardship of the exercises is intended less to strengthen the back than to toughen the mind. The Spartans say that any army may win while it still has its legs under it; the real test comes when all strength is fled and the men must produce victory on will alone.”
Steven Pressfield, Gates of Fire: An Epic Novel of the Battle of Thermopylae

“Just because you don't like something doesn't mean nobody else will, and just because you can't see something, doesn't mean nobody else can.”
― Terry Masters

Walter de la Mare
“His brow is seamed with line and scar;
His cheek is red and dark as wine;
The fires as of a Northern star
Beneath his cap of sable shine.

His right hand, bared of leathern glove,
Hangs open like an iron gin,
You stoop to see his pulses move,
To hear the blood sweep out and in.

He looks some king, so solitary
In earnest thought he seems to stand,
As if across a lonely sea
He gazed impatient of the land.

Out of the noisy centuries
The foolish and the fearful fade;
Yet burn unquenched these warrior eyes,
Time hath not dimmed, nor death dismayed.”
Walter de la Mare

Suzanne Collins
“You asked why the rate hate Overlanders so deeply. It is because they know one will be the warrior of the prophecy," said Vikus.
"Oh, I see," said Gregor. "So, when's he coming?"
Vikus fixed his eyes on Gregor. "I believe he is already here.”
Suzanne Collins, Gregor the Overlander

Andrew Ashling
“Of course he was afraid of war. Only fools are not. Anaxantis was no fool. He was fully prepared to fight, but only as a last resort.”
Andrew Ashling, The Invisible Hands - Part 1: Gambit
