Mark  Lawrence
“Each of us plunges through our own existence, punching me-shaped holes through days, through weeks, through conversations. We're none of us one thing or the other; we're legion. There's a different Yaz inside your skull for everyday of your life. We deceive others. We deceive ourselves. We keep secrets that even we don't know and hold beliefs we don't understand. And in that state of profound, fundamental, primal ignorance, we still think we can sculpt the clay of our own selves. We think we know what to cut away, that we understand the consequences of excising greed.”
Mark Lawrence, The Girl and the Stars

Amal El-Mohtar
“Even poetry, which breaks language into meaning--poetry ossifies, in time, the way trees do. What's supple, whipping, soft, and fresh grows hard, grows armor.”
Amal El-Mohtar, This is How You Lose the Time War

Margaret Atwood
“xxx all souls are equal in heaven.

Only in heaven, I thought. And this is not heaven. This is a place for snakes and ladders, and though I was once high up on a ladder propped up against the Tree of Life, now I've slid down a snake. How gratifying for the others to witness my fall!”
Margaret Atwood, The Testaments

C.J. Tudor
“There was only one problem with hatred, Gabe thought. And it wasn't that it would eat you up or destroy you. That was bullshit. Hatred could fuel you through the worst of times. Grief, despair, terror. Live and forgiveness might keep you warm, but hatred would power your rocket all the way to the moon.

No, the problem was that, eventually, hatred burned itself out.”
C.J. Tudor, The Other People

Anthony Doerr
“Why bother to make music when the silence and wind are so much larger? Why light lamps when the darkness will inevitably snuff them?”
Anthony Doerr, All the Light We Cannot See
