Ursula K. Le Guin
“But need alone is not enough to set power free: there must be knowledge.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, A Wizard of Earthsea

John Green
“…because nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff… Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.”
John Green

Frank Schaeffer
“It seems to me that a spiritual sensibility is built into human nature. Formal religion may or may not disappear but art, love and a desire to find beauty will remain.”
Frank Schaeffer, Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in God: How to give love, create beauty and find peace

Ursula K. Le Guin
“Ged stood sick and haggard. He said at last, “Better I had died.” “Who are you to judge that, you for whom Nemmerle gave his life?—You are safe here. You will live here, and go on with your training. They tell me you were clever. Go on and do your work. Do it well. It is all you can do.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, A Wizard of Earthsea

“You’re horse is nice too,” Amber said softly.”
