J.K. Rowling
“Seventeen, eh!" said Hagrid as he accepted a bucket-sized glass of wine from Fred.
"Six years to the day we met, Harry, d’yeh remember it?"
"Vaguely," said Harry, grinning up at him. "Didn’t you smash down the front door, give Dudley a pig’s tail, and tell me I was a wizard?"
"I forge’ the details," Hagrid chortled.”

“The difference between my darkness and your darkness is that I can look at my own badness in the face and accept its existence while you are busy covering your mirror with a white linen sheet. The difference between my sins and your sins is that when I sin I know I'm sinning while you have actually fallen prey to your own fabricated illusions. I am a siren, a mermaid; I know that I am beautiful while basking on the ocean's waves and I know that I can eat flesh and bones at the bottom of the sea. You are a white witch, a wizard; your spells are manipulations and your cauldron from hell yet you wrap yourself in white and wear a silver wig.”
C. JoyBell C.

'Wizard has a Z'
He looked at me blankly.
'No one appreciates me.' I muttered.”

J.K. Rowling, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay

Terry Pratchett
“Any true wizard, faced with a sign like 'Do not open this door. Really. We mean it. We're not kidding. Opening this door will mean the end of the universe,' would automatically open the door in order to see what all the fuss is about. This made signs rather a waste of time, but at least it meant that when you handed what was left of the wizard to his grieving relatives you could say, as they grasped the jar, 'We told him not to.”
Terry Pratchett, The Last Continent

Ursula K. Le Guin
“But you must not change one thing, one pebble, one grain of sand, until you know what good and evil will follow on that act. The world is in balance, in Equilibrium. A wizard's power of Changing and Summoning can shake the balance of the world. It is dangerous, that power...It must follow knowledge, and serve need.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, A Wizard of Earthsea

Terry Pratchett
“Unseen University was much bigger on the inside. Thousands of years as the leading establishment of practical magic in a world where dimensions were largely a matter of chance in any case had left it bulging in places where it shouldn't have places. There were rooms containing rooms which, if you entered them, turned out to contain the room you'd started with, which can be a problem if you are in a conga line.”
Terry Pratchett, The Last Continent

Criss Jami, Killosophy

L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

“No man, no power, can bind the action of wizardry or still the words of power. For they are the very words of Making, and one who could silence them could unmake the world.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Farthest Shore

Terry Goodkind
“Bags!”
Terry Goodkind, Wizard's First Rule

Penelope Marzec

EVERYONE LIVES BUT US.”

Amit Kalantri

Chris Dee
“Well then, take this thought with you for the dark hours to come: It is a ludicrous fiction that love conquers all, but it can, in fact, conquer quite a lot. I am Iason of the Blood, Knight of Arthur, King of the Britons, reborn into dark service in the year of Our Lord five hundred and sixty. My power is vast, and for none to arrogate but by my will and decree. My services are engaged, Selina. Tell me what you need to ease your pain in this, and it is yours.”
Chris Dee, Cat-Tales Book 3

Ursula K. Le Guin
“And he began to see the truth, that [he] had neither lost nor won but, naming the shadow of his death with his own name, had made himself whole: a man: who, knowing his whole true self, cannot be used or possessed by any power other than himself, and whose life therefore is lived for life's sake and never in the service of ruin, or pain, or hatred, or the dark.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, A Wizard of Earthsea

Sully Tarnish

Sully Tarnish, The Dragon and the Apprentice: A Wizard's Wager

“You may lose a partner, a friend,
But you must never lose yourself.
You may miss the next train, or trend,
And yet it won't put you on the shelf.
Follow the Yellow Brick Road
Without carrying a heavy load.
You may not find a wizard at last,
Stilll you may learn from the past.”
Ana Claudia Antunes, A-Z of Happiness: Tips for Living and Breaking Through the Chain that Separates You from Getting That Dream Job

Talismanist Giebra

A star has a hint of galaxies.”

Jim Butcher
“Paranoia is a survival trait when you run in my circles. It gives you something to do in your spare time, coming up with solutions to ridiculous problems that aren't ever going to happen. Except when one of them does, at which point you feel way too vindicated.

- Harry Dresden, "Changes”
Jim Butcher

Talismanist Giebra
“Talismans can only be perceived but never fully translated into words.”

Alisha Rai
“It sounded like something you Brits would say."
"Someday, I'd love to hear what you imagine my people are like."
"Stiff. Formal. Everyone's a time traveler, a wizard, or works for MI6." She placed her plate on the table, pretending not to notice the legs wobbling a little at the weight.
"That's not quite right. Only some of us are wizards. The rest are Muggles.”
Alisha Rai, Serving Pleasure

Good question. “A proper cup of tea would be welcome.”
She blinked and jerked her head. “What?”
“Kidding.” He grinned. “I’m here to rescue you.”

“You must hate witches now.”
He pulled his gaze from her and stared back at the constellations. “I thought I did.”
He leaned toward her and took a lock of her hair, watching it as he ran it through his fingers. “Until I met you.”
Lisa Carlisle, Stone Cursed: Taurus

Lisa Carlisle
“I’ve been torn with what’s right and what’s wrong,” he said. “Maybe I’m not the best one to judge. All I know is that I’ve wanted to do this for a while, and nothing has ever felt more right.”
He closed the distance between them, brushing his lips against hers.”
Lisa Carlisle, Stone Cursed: Taurus
