“Tears welled in her eyes. Tears for the girl torn from her home; tears for the isolation she’d suffered as the only female in a world of men; tears for the doubts circling her heart.
I am alone.”
Christopher Mannino, Daughter of Deaths

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.”
William Shakespeare, As You Like It

“Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.”
Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time
