Brent Weeks, The Blinding Knife

Charlotte Brontë
“Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field for their efforts, as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, to absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer; and it is narrow-minded in their more privileged fellow-creatures to say that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags. It is thoughtless to condemn them, or laugh at them, if they seek to do more or learn more than custom has pronounced necessary for their sex.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Dawn Keable
“Stop worrying about people who see your path as a rejection of theirs, 'Cause that ain't your problem.”
Dawn Keable, Settling Down

Roman Payne
“She was free in her wildness. She was a wanderess, a drop of free water. She belonged to no man and to no city. (by Roman Payne, from “The Wanderess.”

How this quote became so popular, I have no idea. I wrote it about one woman: The heroine of “The Wanderess,” Saskia; yet I wrote these lines to describe Saskia at her best—praising the qualities of a heroine that all women should strive to have, or keep if they have them. I wrote these lines to make Saskia be like a statue of Psyche or Demeter. The masculine sculptor doesn’t see rock when he carves Aphrodite. He sees before him the carving of the perfect feminine creature.

I was creating my ‘perfect feminine creature’ when I wrote about Saskia. She is completely wild and fearless in her dramatic performance of life. She knows that she may only have one life to live and that most people in her society wish to see her fail in her dream of living a fulfilled life. For if a woman acts and lives exactly as society wants her to live, she will never be truly happy, never fulfilled. For societies do not want girls and women to wander.

I am surprised that this quote became so famous, since I didn’t spend more than a few seconds writing it. It was written merely as three sentences in a novel. I didn’t write it to be a solitary poem. This quote that touches so many people is no more than an arrangement of twenty-four words in a book of three-hundred pages.
What touches me the most is when fans send me photos of tattoos they’ve had done of this quote—either a few words from it or the whole quote. The fact that these wonderful souls are willing to guard words that I’ve written on their precious skin for the rest of their lives makes me feel that what I am writing is worth something and not nothing. When I get depressed and feel the despair that haunts me from time to time, and cripples me, I look at these photos of these tattoos, and it helps me to think that what I am doing is important to some people, and it helps me to start writing again.
Am I a masculine version of the wanderess in this quote? Of course I am! I am wild and fearless, I am a wanderer who belongs to no city and to nobody; I am a drop of free water. I am—to cite one of my other quotes—“free as a bird. King of the world and laughing!”
Roman Payne, The Wanderess

Margarita Engle
“I enjoy peaceful moments when the whole world seems to be flowing river of verse and all I have to do is learn how to swim.”
Margarita Engle, The Lightning Dreamer: Cuba's Greatest Abolitionist

Kate Morton
“Jellemző papára. Reméli, hogy Miss Prince jóvoltából unalmas alakok unalmas feleségei leszünk, tűrhetően beszélünk franciául, tűrhetően zongorázunk, és udvariasan veszítünk, ha néha-néha leülünk bridzselni. Így senkinek sem okozunk majd gondot.”
Kate Morton, The House at Riverton

Kate Morton
“Mi sem ronthat többet egy fiatal hölgy báján, mint az orcátlan értelem.”
Kate Morton, The House at Riverton

Lori Nelson Spielman
“Whatcha got for us today, Miss?" the oldest one asks.
"I want you to move everything out of unit four."
"Everything?"
"Yes. Except the brown chair in the living room." I open the door to the building. "On second thought, leave the mattress, too”
Lori Nelson Spielman, The Life List
