Jonathan Auxier, Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes

J.R.R. Tolkien
“How do you move on? You move on when your heart finally understands that there is no turning back.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

Paolo Bacigalupi
“Mahlia… understood Doctor Mahfouz and his blind rush into the village. He wasn’t trying to change them. He wasn’t trying to save anyone. He was just trying to not be part of the sickness. Mahlia had thought he was stupid for walking straight into death, but now, as she lay against the pillar, she saw it differently. She thought she’d been surviving. She thought that she’d been fighting for herself. But all she’d done was create more killing, and in the end it had all led to this moment, where they bargained with a demon … not for their lives, but for their souls” (p. 403)”
Paolo Bacigalupi, The Drowned Cities

N.D. Wilson
“Your life is your own, your glory is your glory, but you will lose it if you keep it for yourself. Grasp it for the sake of others...”
