Patrick Rothfuss
“I took a deep breath, 'I took the nahlrout because I didn't want to faint. I needed to let them know they couldn't hurt me. I've learned that the best way to stay safe is to make your enemies think you can't be hurt.' It sounded ugly to say it so starkly, but it was the truth. I looked at him defiantly.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

Skyla Dawn Cameron
“In hundreds of years,' she continued, voice darker and sober now, 'I've only let myself love two people. You don't have that kind of time, though. You're mortal. You don't get to make a lot of mistakes before you kick it and if you wait, you get screwed over.”
Skyla Dawn Cameron

Nicole Peeler
“I wasn't running now so much as stumbling quickly, panting like a geriatric lion.”
Nicole Peeler, Tempest Rising

N.K. Jemisin
“There's truth even in tainted knowledge, if one reads carefully.”
N.K. Jemisin, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms

Alexander Jablokov
“Death is real, irreversible, and awful. Do you want some advice? Don't wait until you're dead to try to communicate. Do it now. You still have a chance. Not a great one, but a better one than you will have. If you think it's hard to get your point across now, and that no one really understands what you're about, just try it when you're dead.”
Alexander Jablokov, Brain Thief
