  • Author:: [[Brandon Sanderson]]
  • Highlights::
    • “The difference between good and evil men is not found in the acts they are willing to commit—but merely in what name they are willing to commit them in.”
    • “I’m wondering if every person I pass has similar depths, and if there’s any way to avoid the mistake of judging them so shallowly that I’m rocked when they show their true complexity.”
    • “I learned how much power over a situation you gain when you decide that you don't care what others think of you.” #Confidence
    • “The law is there to keep us from ruining everyone else’s ability to explore. Without law, there’s no freedom.”
    • “Holding your brain hostage against your own stupidity - that was how to get stuff done.”
    • “You can’t just say ‘don’t be offended’ and then say something offensive, man! That’s not how it works.”
    • “A man doesn’t have to like his duty. He just has to do it.”
    • “Did people what got killed in a flood expect an apology from God? God did as God wished. You simply hoped to not get on His worse side. Kinda like the bouncer at the club with the pretty sister.”
    • “A man found himself when he was alone. You only had one person to chat with, one person to blame."
    • “There was a certain perverse anger that lawmen directed at those who broke the law, almost a jealousy. How dare these people escape? How dare they go the places nobody else was allowed to?”
    • “You never want to know what’s beyond the door,” Telsin whispered. “You never did chase the horizon. Where is your curiosity?”
    • “Pushing society forward is no destruction. Even if, in doing so, it leaves us behind.”
    • “Never’ is a word youths often use,” Grandmother said, sipping her tea, “but rarely understand.”
    • “I have to.” “Do you?” “I have to. It’s who I am.” “Then perhaps,” Harmony said, “you should stop hating that, my son.” He extended the hand.
    • “Gotta grow up sometime, right? I’ve found that … well, a man wantin’ something don’t make it true, you know?”
      • "If you want to believe in something then believe in it. Just because something isn't true that's no reason you can't believe in it. Sometimes, the things that may or may not be true are the things that a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good. That honor, courage, and virtue mean everything. That power and money, money and power, mean nothing. That good always triumphs over evil, and I want you to remember this, that love . . . true love, never dies. You remember that, boy. Remember that. Doesn’t matter if it’s true or not, you see. A man should believe in those things because . . . those are the things worth believing in." [[Hub McCann]]
