Amal El-Mohtar
“It's amazing how much blue there is in the world if you look. You're different colors of flame. Bismuth burns blue, and cerium, germanium, and arsenic. See? I pour you into things.”
Amal El-Mohtar, This Is How You Lose the Time War

Holly Black
“Fairy tales are full of girls who wait, who endure, who suffer. Good girls. Obedient girls. Girls who crush nettles until their hands bleed. Girls who haul water for witches. Girls who wander through deserts or sleep in ashes or make homes for transformed brothers in the woods. Girls without hands, without eyes, without the power of speech, without any power at all. But then a prince rides up and sees the girl and finds her beautiful. Beautiful, not despite her suffering, but because of it.”
Holly Black, The Lost Sisters

Brandon Sanderson
“You get to choose who you are. Legacy, memories of the past, can serve us well. But we cannot let them define us. When heritage becomes a box instead of an inspiration, it has gone too far.”
Brandon Sanderson, Skyward

Amal El-Mohtar
“I love you. I love you. I love you. I'll write it in waves. In skies. In my heart. You'll never see, but you will know. I'll be all the poets, I'll kill them all and take each one's place in turn, and every time love's written in all the strands it will be to you.”
Amal El-Mohtar, This Is How You Lose the Time War

Katrina Leno
“Because there was nothing in a girl’s history that might negate her right to choose what happens to her body.”
Katrina Leno, Summer of Salt
