Jonathan Auxier
“A boy your age should know better than to consider anything impossible.” (p 62)”
Jonathan Auxier, Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes

Brandon Sanderson
“It's easy to believe in something when you win all the time...The losses are what define a man's faith.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Well of Ascension

Lauren Oliver
“People need other people to feel things for them," she said. "It gets lonely to feel things all by yourself.”
Lauren Oliver, Liesl & Po

T.H. White
“Life is such unutterable hell, solely because it is sometimes beautiful. If we could only be miserable all the time, if there could be no such things as love or beauty or faith or hope, if I could be absolutely certain that my love would never be returned: how much more simple life would be. One could plod through the Siberian salt mines of existence without being bothered about happiness. Unfortunately the happiness is there. There is always the chance (about eight hundred and fifty to one) that another heart will come to mine. I can't help hoping, and keeping faith, and loving beauty. Quite frequently I am not so miserable as it would be wise to be.”
T.H. White, Ghostly, Grim and Gruesome

Jonathan Auxier
“It was a choice between comfortable misery and terrifying uncertainty… professor Cake had given him a choice – a gift that no one had ever offered him before” 68”
Jonathan Auxier, Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes
