Victor Hugo
“The first symptom of true love in a man is timidity, in a young woman, boldness. This is surprising, and yet nothing is more simple. It is the two sexes tending to approach each other and assuming each the other's qualities.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

David Eddings
“One of the less attractive aspects of human nature is our tendency to hate the people we haven't treated very well; it's much easier than accepting guilt. If we can convince ourselves that the people we betrayed or enslaved were subhuman monsters in the first place, then our guilt isn't nearly so black as we secretly know that it is. Humans are very, very good at shifting blame and avoiding guilt.”
David Eddings, The Shining Ones

Ed Greenwood
“...Each secret you carry has a weight all its own. They add up, secrets, to a burden you must carry all your days.”
Ed Greenwood, Spellfire

T.H. White
“It has to be admitted that starving nations never seem to be quite so starving that they cannot afford to have far more expensive armaments than anybody else.”
T.H. White, The Once and Future King

Terry Brooks
“You shouldn't believe everything you hear you're young, not stupid.”
Terry Brooks, The Wishsong of Shannara
