Veronica Roth
“I wonder if fears ever really go away, or if they just lose their power over us.”
Veronica Roth, Allegiant

“But if I'm it, the last of my kind, the last page of human history, like hell I'm going to let the story end this way. I may be the last one, but I am the one still standing. I am the one turning to face the faceless hunter in the woods on an abandoned highway. I am the one not running but facing. Because if I am the last one, then I am humanity. And if this is humanity's last war, then I am the battlefield.”
Rick Yancey, The 5th Wave

Rick Riordan
“But remember, boy, that a kind act can sometimes be as powerful as a sword.”
Rick Riordan, The Battle of the Labyrinth

Audre Lorde
“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”
Audre Lorde

Alison McGhee
“You are most powerful when you are most silent. People never expect silence. They expect words, motion, defense, offense, back and forth. They expect to leap into the fray. They are ready, fists up, words hanging leaping from their mouths. Silence? No.”
Alison McGhee, All Rivers Flow To The Sea

Malala Yousafzai
“When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.”
Malala Yousafzai, I Am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban

Robert Greene
“Never assume that the person you are dealing with is weaker or less important than you are. Some people are slow to take offense, which may make you misjudge the thickness of their skin, and fail to worry about insulting them. But should you offend their honor and their pride, they will overwhelm you with a violence that seems sudden and extreme given their slowness to anger. If you want to turn people down, it is best to do so politely and respectfully, even if you feel their request is impudent or their offer ridiculous.”
Robert Greene, The 48 Laws of Power

Shannon L. Alder
“I am convinced that the jealous, the angry, the bitter and the egotistical are the first to race to the top of mountains. A confident person enjoys the journey, the people they meet along the way and sees life not as a competition. They reach the summit last because they know God isn’t at the top waiting for them. He is down below helping his followers to understand that the view is glorious where ever you stand.”
Shannon Alder

Victoria Aveyard
“Kneel or bleed.”
Victoria Aveyard, Glass Sword

Deb Caletti
“And pity--people who inspire it in you are actually very powerful people. To get someone else to take care of you, to feel sorry for you--that takes a lot of strength, smarts, manipulation. Very powerful people.”
Deb Caletti, The Secret Life of Prince Charming

Germany Kent
“It's a funny thing about life, once you begin to take note of the things you are grateful for, you begin to lose sight of the things that you lack.”
Germany Kent

Neal Shusterman
“Hope in the shadow of fear is the world's most powerful motivator.”
Neal Shusterman, Scythe

“Half of me is filled with bursting words and half of me is painfully shy. I crave solitude yet also crave people. I want to pour life and love into everything yet also nurture my self-care and go gently. I want to live within the rush of primal, intuitive decision, yet also wish to sit and contemplate. This is the messiness of life - that we all carry multitudes, so must sit with the shifts. We are complicated creatures, and ultimately, the balance comes from this understanding. Be water. Flowing, flexible and soft. Subtly powerful and open. Wild and serene. Able to accept all changes, yet still led by the pull of steady tides. It is enough.”
Victoria Erickson

Zaman Ali
“No one should need to be big enough to destroy others and all of us must have to be powerful and resourceful enough to protect ourselves.”
Zaman Ali, ZAMANISM Wealth of the People

Shannon L. Alder
“When you stop living your life based on what others think of you real life begins. At that moment, you will finally see the door of self acceptance opened.”
Shannon L. Alder

Kazuo Ishiguro
“I do not think I responded immediately, for it took me a moment or two to fully digest these words of Miss Kenton. Moreover, as you might appreciate, their implications were such as to provoke a certain degree of sorrow within me. Indeed- why should I not admit it? - at that moment, my heart was breaking.”
Kazuo Ishiguro, The Remains of the Day

Dinos Christianopoulos
“They tried to bury us. They didn't know we were seeds.”
Dinos Christianopoulos

Susan Elizabeth Phillips
“If I could put my brain in her body, the world would be mine for the taking.”
Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Match Me If You Can

Margaret  Rogerson
“Knowledge always has the potential to be dangerous. It is a more powerful weapon than any sword or spell.”
Margaret Rogerson, Sorcery of Thorns

Steve Maraboli
“Once you start recognizing the truth of your story, finish the story. It happened but you're still here, you're still capable, powerful, you're not your circumstance. It happened and you made it through. You're still fully equipped with every single tool you need to fulfill your purpose.”
Steve Maraboli

J.K. Rowling
“At that moment, Harry fully understood for the first time why people said Dumbledore was the only wizard Voldemort had ever feared. The look upon Dumbledore's face as he stared down at the unconscious form of Mad-Eye moody was more terrible than Harry could have ever imagined. There was no benign smile upon Dumbledore's face, no twinkle in the eyes behind the spectacles. There was cold fury in every line of the ancient face; a sense of power radiated from Dumbledore as though he were giving off burning heat.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Margaret Atwood
“There is something powerful in the whispering of obscenities, about those in power. There's something delightful about it, something naughty, secretive, forbidden, thrilling. It's like a spell, of sorts. It deflates them, reduces them to the common denominator where they can be dealt with.”
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale

J.K. Rowling
“But Dobby shouted, "You shall not harm Harry Potter! ... He got up, face livid, and pulled out his wand, but Dobby raised a long, threatening finger. "You shall go now," he said fiercely, pointing down at Mr. Malfoy. "You shall not touch Harry Potter. You shall go now.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

“Everything is within your power,
and your power is within you.”
Janice Trachtman, Catching What Life Throws at You: Inspiring True Stories of Healing

Simona Panova
“Everybody is equally weak on the inside, just that some present their ruins as new castles and become kings –”
Simona Panova, Nightmarish Sacrifice

Victoria Aveyard
“Their Silver war is being paid for in Red blood.”
Victoria Aveyard, Red Queen

Holly Black
“Why am I the way I am?” His tone makes it clear he’s proposing something I might suggest he ask, not really wondering about it. “There are no real answers, Jude. Why was I cruel to Folk? Why was I awful to you? Because I could be. Because I liked it. Because, for a moment, when I was at my worst, I felt powerful, and most of the time, I felt powerless, despite being a prince and the son of the High King of Faerie.”
Holly Black, The Wicked King

Nikki Rowe
“Be a woman of confidence, not cockiness.
Know your boundaries, set no limits.
Speak your kindness and turn your back to conformed groups.
The only way to be a woman of change in this world, is to walk what you talk and set your own soul free first.”
Nikki Rowe

Yasmina Khadra
“We've already been killed, all of us. It happened so long ago, we've forgotten it.”
Yasmina Khadra, Swallows of Kabul

Holly Black
“You can take a thing when no one’s looking. But defending it, even with all the advantage on your side, is no easy task,” Madoc told her with a laugh. She looked up to find him offering her a hand. “Power is much easier to acquire than it is to hold on to.”
Holly Black, The Wicked King
