Rick Riordan
“You can tell the future?'
'More like the future mugs me from time to time.' Rachel said
'I speak prophecies. The oracle spirit kind of hijacks me once in a while, and speaks important stuff that doesn't make any sense to anybody. But yeah, the prophecies tell the future.”
Rick Riordan, The Lost Hero

Rick Riordan
“Rachel bit her lip. "I hope you're right. I'm a little worried. What if someone asks what's on the next math test and I start spouting a prophecy in the middle of geometry class? The Pythagorean theorem shall be problem two...Gods, that would be embarrassing.”
Rick Riordan, The Last Olympian

Ilona Andrews
“The Oracle rose. As one, the three witches bowed.
"See?" Bran jerked his thumb at the three women. "That's how a woman should treat a man. Next time you see me, I want you to do just like them.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns

Kailin Gow
“I once told someone not to go into business with someone, and a year later, after he didn't listen, he was bankrupt and near divorce. I once told a popular actress, who everyone constantly praised, to not join a certain group. A few years later, that group was accused of heinous acts, and that actress told me she wished she had listened to my advice. Her career tanked. I once told a popular musician to choose relationship over her career for this one person. She didn't, and now 10 years later, she is still single, but her career tank. Her ex had moved on. I believe that I would be an oracle or seer if I lived during the Greek and Roman times. But then again, I believe my insights come from experience, clarity, and the understanding of humankind. And sometimes from a strong sense of knowing. - Strong by Kailin Gow on Following Your Guts, Strong Intuition”
Kailin Gow

Gerald R. Stanek
“It is your omen, only you know the meaning. To me, it is but another star in the night.”
Gerald R. Stanek, The Eighth House

Garon Whited
“...the whole 'know thyself' thing isn’t a journey to a fixed destination. Learning about myself changes me, forcing me to learn more. 'Know thyself' isn’t a goal; it’s a road.”
Garon Whited, Nightlord: Shadows

Charles Frazier
“In his mind, Inman likened the swirling paths of vulture flight to the coffee grounds seeking pattern in his cup. Anyone could be oracle for the random ways things fall against each other. It was simple enough to tell fortunes if a man dedicated himself to the idea that the future will inevitably be worse than the past and that time is a path leading nowhere but a place of deep and persistent threat. The way Inman saw it, if a thing like Fredericksburg was to be used as a marker of current position, then many years hence, at the rate we're going, we'll be eating one another raw.”
Charles Frazier, Cold Mountain

“Hades, Hera, and Hestia!" Flynn curses, pointing up.
"What in the Underworld is that?"
"A She-Dragon." Everyone turns to me, and as much as I love having four handsome men gape at me in stupefaction, right now, I could do without.”
Amanda Bouchet, A Promise of Fire

Amanda Bouchet
“I don’t know why it’s not universally acknowledged that looking back is a terrible idea. It only makes going forward that much harder.”
Amanda Bouchet, Breath of Fire

Sereda Aleta Dailey
“Whenever a time arises where clarity is desired, it is always wise to reflect on the sage within.”
Sereda Aleta Dailey, The Oracle of Poetic Wisdom

Shaun Jeffrey
“He studied the room, looking for the Oracle, but he couldn't see anyone else in attendance - at least not anyone alive.”
Shaun Jeffrey, The Kult

Will Advise
“I'm an oracle of the past. I can accurately predict up to 1 minute in the future, by thoroughly investigating the last 2 years of your life. Also, I look like an old database – flat and full of useless info.”
Will Advise, Nothing is here...

Frank Herbert
“The people who demand that the oracle predict for them really want to know next year’s price on whalefur or something equally mundane. None of them wants an instant-by-instant prediction of his personal life.”
Frank Herbert, Heretics of Dune

Ramon Ravenswood
“Oracle of Delphi Speaks:
In my deep mystery I breathe
your fragrance swirling in
your odourless soul
I return your mystery
revealing your destiny deep in
the seed of your God Self”
Ramon Ravenswood, Icons Speak

Fritz Leiber
“At that instant the hag's noisy breathing stopped and with it all other sound. Her eyes opened, showing only whites - milky ovals infinitely eerie in the dark root-tangle of her sharp features and stringy hair. The gray tip of her tongue traveled like a large maggot around her lips.”
Fritz Leiber, Swords Against Wizardry

Sereda Aleta Dailey
“You are capable of doing everything you are afraid of doing, If only you would energize and motivate the Magical thing would absolutely happen to you!”
Sereda Aleta Dailey, The Oracle of Poetic Wisdom

Amanda Bouchet
“Don’t you get it Cat? You’re the key. I knew it the day I laid eyes on you.”
Amanda Bouchet, Breath of Fire

Stephen Baxter
“The ColU, sitting on its tabletop, seemed to Stef to twinkle. ‘I’m Colius the Oracle now.”
Stephen Baxter, Ultima

Elaine  White
“The tears were there, waiting to make their escape. But she wouldn’t let them. Not this time. She couldn’t. Because if there was one thing she had to do now, it was be strong and brave. She just had to be strong and brave for one week. That was no time at all. And when the week was over and Milo had found his true mate, she would disappear.”
Elaine White, The Alpha and the Oracle

Cristina Smith
“Many of us have had Oracle experiences, though we may not have called them that.
Have you had the feeling there’s a guardian angel looking out for you? Or heard an inner
voice that is not your own? Gotten a profound insight that you would not have otherwise
considered? Had your prayers answered? Especially in an unexpected way? These are a
few of the ways that the invisible world guides us.”
Cristina Smith, The Word Search Oracle- Yoga for the Brain

Euripides
“Apollo, Apollo—but he is my lord. I will keep silence. He is wise forever, though his oracle spoke brutal words. We are bound to acquiesce. And you must do now as Fate and Zeus ordain.”
Euripides, Electra

Gwen Mitchell
“The first thing you need to learn is that an Oracle must choose very carefully how they influence the future. Sometimes a tiny ripple in the now can cause a huge drift. The future is never set, you see, it changes with every choice we make. And changing the larger currents of Fate, even by accident, comes at a heavy price.”
Gwen Mitchell, Rain of Ash

John Ostrander
“I realized that the Internet could be a mask as surely as any cowl. I could assume an identity — and this time, not a second-hand version of someone else. This would be mine — my mask, my shield — my persona.” ”
John Ostrander

Mara Amberly
“The pieces of the puzzle are visible, but not the grand design. Images flicker and dance like memories, hinting at events to come. They scatter the moment I reach for them only to re-form to taunt me. I who never truly possessed them, nor may I ever.
They do tell me this: a time of great change approaches and it’s not enough to watch. We must act. We can’t count on others to do our work for us or all may be lost.
- Oracle Lilian’s Diary, Winter of 3765”
Mara Amberly, Fire and Gold
