Obert Skye
“There are so many impatient people in the world. It seems everyone wants something right this second. We don't want to wait in lines, we get fidgety when our food takes too long to cook, and we have no tolerance whatsoever for anyone who holds us up from doing anything we want to do the moment we want to do it. I'm bothered right now that I'm having to wait till the end of this sentence to see what word I end up on. On, who knew? It's particularly hard to wait for things that are days or weeks or even months away. Calendars mock you, clocks pester you, and the rotation of the earth seems to slow by at least forty percent. I suppose, however, that if you were preparing to take over the world and you needed one final piece to fall into place, but that piece had to be slowly dragged over the dirt so it didn't die, that would be really hard to wait for. I'd feel sorry for whoever that happened to, but then again they were trying to take over the world and all.
So please, no sympathy for Azure.”
Obert Skye, Leven Thumps and the Wrath of Ezra

Nitya Prakash
“Instant gratification is overrated. While it might seem exciting to be able to snap your fingers and have something you want materialize before your eyes, that won't give you the full appreciation or enjoyment that comes from envisioning your dream and making it happen with everything you've got. If there is something you want very much, and you are feeling pretty impatient about getting it, you should resolve to enjoy the process and not look forward only to the goal; you'll get much more out of it this way.”
Nitya Prakash
