Robert Jordan
“Just because fate has chosen something for you instead of you choosing it for yourself doesn’t mean it has to be bad. Even if it’s something you are sure you would never have chosen in a hundred years. ‘Better ten days of love than years of regretting,’ ” she quoted.”
Robert Jordan, The Dragon Reborn

Patrick Rothfuss
“Only a fool worries over what he can’t control.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear

Philip K. Dick
“It takes a certain amount of courage, he thought, to face yourself and say with candor, I'm rotten. I've done evil and I will again. It was no accident; it emanated from the true, authentic me.”
Philip K. Dick, The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch

Neil deGrasse Tyson
“Curious that we spend more time congratulating people who have succeeded than encouraging people who have not.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson

Stephen Graham Jones
“If there's any better place to get stoned than a rolling box full of pastry, then they didn't have the keys for it, anyway.”
Stephen Graham Jones, Zombie Bake-Off
