“Ox, at an early age a Chinese genius gazes at the path that lies ahead and reaches for a wine jar," Master Li said. "Is it any wonder that our greatest men have lurched rather than walked across the landscape as they hiccuped their way into history?”
Barry Hughart, The Story of the Stone: A Master Li Novel

George R.R. Martin
“They can keep their heaven. When I die, I’d sooner go to Middle Earth. ”
George R.R. Martin

Joe Abercrombie
“It always amazes me, how swiftly problems can be solved, once you start cutting things off people.”
Joe Abercrombie, Last Argument of Kings

Tobias S. Buckell
“Just stories? Stories can build up an empire, or strike down a people. You can spell the most powerful spell, ease a friend’s hurt, or break an enemy. Stories make you believe.”
Tobias S. Buckell, Tides from the New Worlds

Ursula K. Le Guin
“My mother was mad, but I was not. My father was old, but I was young. Like Spartan Helen, I caused a war. She caused hers by letting men who wanted her take her. I caused mine because I wouldn’t be given, wouldn’t be taken, but chose my man and my fate.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, Lavinia
