Brandon Sanderson
“It seems a simple task. We all know what water looks like, feels like in our mouth. Water is ubiquitous. Describing a cup of water feels a little like doing a still life painting. As a child I used to wonder: Why do people spend so much time painting bowls of fruit, when they could be painting dragons? Why learn to describe a cup of water, when the story is about cool magic and (well) dragons?

It’s a thing I had trouble with as a teenage writer—I’d try to rush through the “boring” parts to get to the interesting parts, instead of learning how to make the boring parts into the interesting parts. And a cup of water is vital to this. Robert Jordan showed me that a cup of water can be a cultural dividing line–the difference between someone who grew up between two rivers, and someone who’d never seen a river before a few weeks ago.

A cup of water can be an offhand show of wealth, in the shape of an ornamented cup. It can be a mark of traveling hard, with nothing better to drink. It can be a symbol of better times, when you had something clean and pure. A cup of water isn’t just a cup of water, it’s a means of expressing character. Because stories aren’t about cups of water, or even magic and dragons. They’re about the people painted, illuminated, and changed by magic and dragons.”
Brandon Sanderson

“Where there is a will... There is a way...”

George Eliot
“Her finely touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.”
George Eliot

“Nothing is certain. Many ways lead to destruction. You will be tested beyond your capacity to endure. Should you survive the trials ahead, you will be a husband without a wife, a father without a son, a hero without a quest, and a king without a country. But take heart. Some must lose the way to find it. Some must be empty before they are full, weak before they are strong, and blind before they can see.”
Brandon Mull, Seeds of Rebellion

“Life has to be lived fully, experiencing pleasure until you find happiness. It's tricky, but in many cases, it’s only after men experience the pleasures of lust at its fullest that they begin to appreciate love at its best.”
Toffee, Finding Juliet

“Don’t just expect life to be a continuous streak of wins,
Expect it to be a balance of wins and losses,
Expect it to be a roller coaster,
Expect it to be a wild ride,
Expect it to be glorious,
Expect it to be devastating,
Expect good days,
and then expect moments that will test you for everything you have.
Be Strong. Be Patient. Be Compassionate. Be Wild. Be Passionate. Be energetic. Follow your dreams. Believe.”
Mehak Bhalla

“No, non neppure per un attimo. Esercito soltanto i miei diritti di individuo. Ti ho appena detto quello che penso per spiegarti come mai, secondo me, quei salti elefanteschi di Madame Tetralani mi rovinano l'orchestra. Può darsi che tutti gli esperti musicali del mondo abbiano ragione. Ma io sono io, e non ho intenzione di far dipendere i miei gusti dal giudizio concorde dell'umanità. Se c'è una cosa che non mi piace, non mi piace e basta; e non c'è una ragione per cui debba far finta che mi piaccia, soltanto perché buona parte dei miei simili l'apprezza o finge di apprezzarla.”
Martin Eden, Jack London
