"I write for the same reason I breathe - because if I didn't, I would die."
"We need to be reminded sometimes that a sunrise lasts but a few moments.
"Not all boats which sail away into darkness never find the sun again, or the hand of another child; if life teaches anything at all, it teaches that there are so many happy endings that the man who believes there is no God needs his rationality called into serious question."
"Thus it is that ideas, which grow up within the imagination and appear so lovely to it and of a value beyond whatever men call valuable, are exposed to be shattered and annihilated by contact with the practical. It is requisite for the ideal artist to possess a force of character that seems hardly compatible with its delicacy; he must keep his faith in himself while the incredulous world assails him with its utter disbelief; he must stand up against mankind and be his own sole disciple, both as respects his genius and the objects to which it is directed."

"There is light. Beauty up there that no shadow can touch."
"You cannot win a game of tug-of-war by merely standing firm."
"I'm not as random as you think I salad."
"It is better, I think, to grab at the stars rather than to sit flustered because you know you cannot reach them...At least he who reaches will get a good stretch, a good veiw, and perhaps a low-hanging apple for his effort."
"Tell me of mercy, wise Cadderly," Dorigen remarked. "Is it strength, or weakness?"
"We go together or not at all."
"Never tell a young person that anything cannot be done. God may have been waiting centuries for someone ignorant enough of the impossible to do that very thing."
"The word...is no. I am therefore going anyway."
"It is enough for me to know that we will understand all, when we reach our home."
"I believe it is time to move on."
"We may disappear tomorrow...but at least we're living now."
"The best defense is a good offense. And I intend to start offending right now."
"Once again, we've saved civilization as we know it."
"Curious how you humans so often manage to obtain that which you do not want."
"Yes, there is weakness. There is frailty. But there is courage also--and honor to be found in men."
"I never thought I'd die fighting side-by-side with an elf!"
"Certainty of death...small chance of success...what're we waitin for?"
"All that is gold does not glitter,
"Faithless is he who says farewell when the road darkens."
