Quotes by Noor Al-Shanti  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“he did not seem to have any actual training with a weapon, but there was something frightening about the way he fought. Something wild and uncontrolled seemed to have possessed him.”
Noor Al-Shanti, Children of the Dead City

“and the uniform jacket he wore was so tattered and dirty that there could only be one reason he still had it. It must mean something to him, hold some particular importance.”
Noor Al-Shanti, Children of the Dead City

“The fiend had the head of a wolf, but the skin was scaly and serpent-like and the eyes bore an intelligence that far exceeded a wolf's.”
Noor Al-Shanti, Wanderer

J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“Don’t you understand? Life is a journey. We Travelers choose to decide our paths, instead of desperately clinging to one place and letting the world hurt us by pushing us around.”
Noor Al-Shanti, Nyarai: Traveler of the Circle

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.”
Albert Einstein

“The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.”
Tom Clancy

J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
