Shannon L. Alder
“Don't waste your time trying to provide people with proof of deceit, in order to keep their love, win their love or salvage their respect for you. The truth is this: If they care they will go out of their way to learn the truth. If they don't then they really don't value you as a human being. The moment you have to sell people on who you are is the moment you let yourself believe that every good thing you have ever done or accomplished was invisible to the world. And, it is not!”
Shannon L. Alder

“Power resides where men believe it resides. A very small man can cast a very large shadow.”

Martin Luther
“‎What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and work flow.”
Martin Luther

The innkeeper smiled. "I'm sure Martin will be flattered.”
Patrick Rothfuss, Rogues

Guillaume Musso
“- Aimer, c'est toujours dangereux, Martin ! Aimer, c'est espérer tout gagner en risquant de tout perdre, et c'est aussi parfois accepter de prendre le risque d'être moins aimé que l'on n'aime.
- Eh bien tu vois, dit-il en se levant de table, ce risque, je crois que je ne suis plus prêt à le prendre.”
Guillaume Musso, Que serais-je sans toi?

Raymond E. Feist
“- Като дете изпитвах същото по клоните на големите дървета. Да стоиш прилепен до един ствол, толкова древен, че и най-древната човешка памет бледнее пред него, ти внушава същото чувство за място в света.”
Raymond E. Feist, Magician: Master

Scott  Meyer
“The only question that got any traction was when he asked Martin what he did. Martin tersely replied that he was a wizard and was met with a blank stare. “You know, a wizard,” Martin said. “I do magic.” Martin had expected that this would at least impress Ampyx. Martin was wrong. “Why?” Ampyx asked. “Why what? Why do I do magic?” “Yes, why do you do magic?” Ampyx asked, as if it were the most obvious question in the world. Martin looked at Phillip, who shrugged. Finally, Martin answered, “Why wouldn’t I do magic? Wouldn’t you do magic if you could?” “Never,” Ampyx said. “Well, why not?” Ampyx scrunched his face and said, “Magic . . . it is . . . woman’s work.”

“Holland surrendered to the Nazis. Belgium surrendered to the Nazis. The Germans marched into Paris. None of these catastrophes managed to shake the general feeling that war in Europe was not in Martin's business. A peacetime draft got the town's attention.”

“With diversity things I know people are always like, "oh don't force diversity!" I'm of the opinion that if I read your book and at the end of the book I'm like, it's kinda weird that there are no black people in this? Bad world building. The way I find easiest to explain especially to people who are maybe hesitant to change, is that if you took 100 random people off of the earth and were like "here's 100 people!" The chances of every single one of them being pale white and straight are very unlikely. So when I read a book and you introduce me to over a hundred characters and every single one of them is pale white and straight, it's bad world building. It doesn't feel like a real place to me.”

“Nobody should have to put their boxers in a half rotted chest of drawers.”
“Hey. I’ll have you know that the rustic look is very popular in the burbs.”
“Rustic?” Chase snorted. “Is that your way of saying termite infested?”
“This furniture does not have termites. Mice maybe, even moths, but not termites.”
“Great, I can look forward to having a swiss cheese wardrobe.”

“They want to talk to you tomorrow.”
“Tomo…” Chase choked on the word. “As in the day after today?”
“Is there any other kind?”

“If I become a wizard, do I have to be celibate?” This seemed to puzzle Phillip. “No, you don’t have to be celibate. You can be, if that’s your thing.”
Scott Meyer, Off to Be the Wizard
