“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.

And if this is humanity's last war, then I am the battlefield.”
Rick Yancey, The 5th Wave

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.

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

“I am convinced that the jealous, the angry, the bitter and the egotistical are the first to race to the top of mountains.

He is down below helping his followers to understand that the view is glorious where ever you stand.”
Shannon L. Alder

Kazuo Ishiguro, The Remains of the Day

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 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 Chamber of Secrets

Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale

they can either
leave you
feeling
homeless

or brimming
with home.”

“This is one hell of a suicide note.

THE SUICIDE SOLILOQUY-
Yes! I've resolved the deed to do,
And this the place to do it;
The heart I'll rush a dagger through
Though I in hell should rue it!

Sweet steel! Come forth from out your sheath,
And glist'ning, speak your powers;
Rip up the organs of my breath,
And draw my blood in showers!

I strike! It quivers in that heart
Which drives me to this end;
I draw and kiss the bloody dart,
My last-my only friend!”
Seth Grahame-Smith, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
