  • Highlights::
    • “You should try not to talk so much, friend. You'll sound far less stupid that way."
    • “But you can't kill me, Lord Tyrant. I represent that one thing you've never been able to kill, no matter how hard you try. I am hope.”
    • “Belief isn't simply a thing for fair times and bright days...What is belief - what is [[Faith]] - if you don't continue in it after failure?...Anyone can believe in someone, or something that always succeeds...But failure...ah, now, that is hard to believe in, certainly and truly. Difficult enough to have value. Sometimes we just have to wait long enough...then we find out why exactly it was that we kept believing...There's always another secret.”
    • “I've always been very confident in my immaturity.”
    • “Our belief is often strongest when it should be weakest. That is the nature of [[Hope]].”
    • “I am the one thing you can never kill. I am [[Hope]].”
    • “My behavior is nonetheless, deplorable. Unfortunately, I'm quite prone to such bouts of deplorability--take for instance, my fondness for [[Reading]] books at the dinner table.”
    • “I'm not really sure why. But... do you stop loving someone just because they betray you? I don't think so. That's what makes the betrayal hurt so much - pain, frustration, anger... and I still loved her. I still do.”
    • “Men rarely see their own actions as unjustified.”
    • “Belief?" "Yes," Sazed said. "Tell me, Mistress. What is it that you believe?" Vin frowned. "What kind of question is that?" "The most important kind, I think.” #Faith
    • “The right belief is like a good cloak, I think. If it fits you well, it keeps you warm and safe. The wrong fit however, can suffocate.”
    • “That’s the funny thing about arriving somewhere, Vin,” he said with a wink. “Once you’re there, the only thing you can really do is leave again.”
    • “I think given the choice between loving Mare - betrayal included - and never knowing her, I'd chose love. I risked, and I lost, but the risk was still worth it.”
    • “That's kind of what [[trust]] is, isn't it? A willful self-delusion.”
