George Orwell
“Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence. In other words, it is war minus the shooting.

(in "The Sporting Spirit", Tribune, GB, London, December 1945)”
George Orwell, The Collected Essays, Journalism and Letters of George Orwell 1903-1950

Steve Toltz
“The game is an analogy for life: there are not enough chairs or good times to go around, not enough food, not enough joy, nor beds nor jobs nor laughs nor friends nor smiles nor money nor clean air to breathe...and yet the music goes on.”
Steve Toltz, A Fraction of the Whole

Joe Abercrombie
“If you want to be a new man you have to stay in new places, and do new things, with people who never knew you before. If you go back to the same old ways, what else can you be but the same old person?”
Joe Abercrombie, Last Argument of Kings

Brandon Sanderson
“A man can only lead when others accept him as their leader, and he has only as much authority as his subjects give to him. All of the brilliant ideas in the world cannot save your kingdom if no one will listen to them.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Well of Ascension

Stephen King
“Symbolism exists to adorn and enrich, not to create an artificial sense of profundity.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
