Νίκος Καζαντζάκης
“-O άνθρωπος είναι χτήνος! φώναξε και χτύπησε με θυμό το ραβδί του στις πέτρες. Μεγάλο χτήνος. Δεν το ξέρει η ευγένειά σου, σου ήρθαν μαθές όλα βολικά, μα ρώτα και μένα· χτήνος, σου λέω! Του 'καμες κακό; Σε σέβεται και σε τρέμει. Του 'καμες καλό; Σου βγάζει τα μάτια.”
Νίκος Καζαντζάκης, Zorba the Greek

H.L. Mencken
“I know some who are constantly drunk on books as other men are drunk on whiskey.”
H.L. Mencken

Patrick Rothfuss
“If you want to write a fantasy story with Norse gods, sentient robots, and telepathic dinosaurs, you can do just that. Want to throw in a vampire and a lesbian unicorn while you're at it? Go ahead. Nothing's off limits. But the endless possibility of the genre is a trap. It's easy to get distracted by the glittering props available to you and forget what you're supposed to be doing: telling a good story. Don't get me wrong, magic is cool. But a nervous mother singing to her child at night while something moves quietly through the dark outside her house? That's a story. Handled properly, it's more dramatic than any apocalypse or goblin army could ever be.”
Patrick Rothfuss

Robert Jordan
“The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again.”
Robert Jordan

Malala Yousafzai
“Let us pick up our books and our pens,” I said. “They are our most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.”
Malala Yousafzai, I Am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban
