Nicci looked up at Kahlan. “Knives are not my talent.” “It’s not hard,” Kahlan said as she pressed the handle into Nicci’s hand. “When the time is right, just stick the pointed end somewhere important in someone you really don’t like.”

Never thought of it quite like that. But it’s true.

Wizard’s Eleventh and Final Rule

The “Rule Unspoken”, the “Rule Unwritten”, “The rule from the beginning of time.”

I love that there are rules in every single book. It’s amazing.

To love someone means that you sometimes are fulfilled the most by putting their deepest desires above your own.

I’m a little teary eyed with this one.

I’m afraid that we all make mistakes. One of the things that defines our character is how we handle mistakes. If we lie about having made a mistake, then it can’t be corrected and it festers. On the other hand, if we give up just because we made a mistake, even a big mistake, none of us would get far in life.

So true.

Setting aside the messiness of which accents were considered sexy in which cultures and why, accents in general were nature’s way of saying, “Procreate with that one, their gene code must be varied as fuck.” Few things, it seemed, could turn a person on as quickly as the subconscious realization they almost certainly weren’t flirting with a blood relative.”

What a nugget of information to chew on.

For the first time, the very very first time, I really believed them. That my relationship status did not change me. And that even if other people didn’t agree, every single person in this room had my back without hesitation. I was with them and they were with me and we were with each other. A community within a community within a community. No questions asked. No proof needed. No valid form of identification required. We just belonged because we belonged.

This also gives a lot to ponder on. Makes you wonder how deeply the main character thinks.

Brougham arrived at Mom’s house to join in on my birthday cake holding a plate of white bread coated in sugar sprinkles, for some reason.

This is just quirky to me.

I swallowed, and scanned the faces staring up at me. No one looked judgy or irritated, even though it felt like such a stupid, trivial thing to bring up. The fear of passing as straight, for god’s safe. “I feel like if I’m with a guy, I won’t belong here properly anymore. What if I got a boyfriend? I’d feel weird bringing him to pride events, or even telling queer people I have a boyfriend. I’d feel judged.”

I understand this feeling well.

You know how it is with cats: They don’t really have owners, they have staff.

Facts!!!!

I think most people, and I’m talking vamp or human, are shitty. They put on an act. They pretend to be all nicey-nice, but are really just one step away from showing their true asshole-ness.

I kind of feel this way some days. Aphrodite has been surrounded by those types of people all her life. So her mindset is kind of expected.

If my parents aren’t ignoring me, they’re insulting me. I like being ignored better.

She gets a birthday card from her “parents”.

I was crazy about Heath. And his blood. Erik was an amazing guy who I really, really liked. Loren was completely delicious. Jeesh, I sucked.

When I was growing up, she would “affectionately” be called boy crazy. I know what that means now that I’m older. I also understand now that I’m older that some people are meant to have more than one great love in their life. Not everybody, but some people are.

Kahlan stood quietly in the shadows, watching, as evil knocked softly on the door.

This is such a simple yet powerful sentence. It says so much with so little.

Life could be brutal, but that such brutality did not define life or its purpose, and that the sexes were not rivals, but meant to share together in the work and joys of life.

I agree with this fully.

People who for whatever reason don’t want to see the truth can be acutely hostile to it and shrill in their denunciation of it. They frequently turn their venomous antagonism on whoever dares to point out that truth.

Read that again.

Wizard’s Tenth Rule

Willfully turning aside from the truth is treason to one’s self.

I love that every book has had a rule stated in them. Sometimes just once and sometimes scattered through the book.

It was like I was inside a fishbowl in the middle of a typhoon, and everyone else was on the outside cluelessly enjoying lovely weather.

This one really hit me hard. It’s stuck with me since I first read it. To me, this is what having depression, anxiety, and PTSD feels like.

A big, studly football jock like me? I got plenty of blood to spare. For you, I have anything to spare.

Heath is one of my favorite characters of all time! He’s just so adorakable! And yes. I said that right.

“Your way of life is sinful and wrong,” he said fiercely.

“Thus says a man who admits to worshipping a God who vilifies pleasure, relegates women to roles that are little more than servants and broodmares, though they are the backbone of your church, and seeks to control his worshippers through guilt and fear.”

Parents day did not go well for Zoey thanks to her stepfather showing up and being his usual self.

Remember, darkness does not always equate to evil, just as light does not always bring good.

This was also in the first book. It’s a very powerful statement if you think about it. Interpret it as you will.

Hesitation is a mistake that invites defeat. I would not be Mord-Sith had I not hesitated when I was young.

This is a deep quote from one of my favorite characters in the series. I absolutely love her!

Others made you into who you were. You made yourself into what you have become.

So simple but yet so deep!

Love is a passion for life shared with another person. You fall in love with a person who you think is wonderful. It’s your deepest appreciation of the value of that individual, and that individual is a reflection of what you value most in life. Love, for sound reasons, can be one of life’s greatest rewards.

This is just so beautiful.

Not everyone is willing to embrace liberty; liberty requires not just effort, but risk. Some people choose to delude themselves and see their chains as protective armor.

Some truths are just hard to swallow!

You are old beyond your years Zoeybird. Believe in yourself and you will find a way. But remember darkness does not always equate to evil just like light does not always bring good.

This is actually one of my favorite quotes of all time. It speaks so strongly to me and has since I read this book for the first time.

Actually, since I’m gay I think I should count for two guys instead of just one. I mean, in me you get the male point of view and you don’t have to worry about me wanting to touch your boobies.

I really adore Damien and this is one of my favorite quotes of all times of his.

I’ve found that the way a person feels about cats-and the way they feel about him or her in return-is usually an excellent gauge by which to measure a person’s character.

This is true, but I want to broaden this to say animals in general.

Do vampyres play chess? Were there vampyre dorks? How about Barbie-like vampyre cheerleaders? Did any vampyres play in the band? Were there vampyre Emos with their guy-wearing-girl’s-pants weirdness and those awful bangs that cover half their faces? Or were they all those freaky Goth kids who didn’t like to bathe much? Was I going to turn into a Goth kid? Or worse, an Emo? I didn’t particularly like wearing black, at least not exclusively, and I wasn’t feeling a sudden and unfortunate aversion to soap and water, nor did I have an obsessive desire to change my hairstyle and wear too much eyeliner.

I’m not sure why I like this quote actually. I just do.

No. You can’t understand. Because you’re reading the last chapter of something without having read the first chapter. You’re a little guy, Bode. Kids always think they’re coming into a story at the beginning, when they’re usually coming in at the end.

This is profound

Don’t ever have children, Tyler, unless you’re ready to be afraid everyday for the rest of your life.

Makes sense.

I think if you cheat in a ethics class then there’s really no hope for you.

I mean…

I’m not questioning your bravery. I’m questioning your intelligence.

Everyone makes mistakes. How a person deals with their mistakes is a mark of their character.

I say this so much!

Only you can achieve self-worth for yourself. Any group offering it to you, or demanding it of you, comes bearing chains of slavery.

Yes!!!

Evil grants no mercy, and to attempt to appease it is nothing more than a piecemeal surrender to it. Surrender to evil is slavery at best, death at worse. -Richard Rahl

He’s seriously one of my favorite characters of all time.

Moral compromise rejects the concept of right and wrong. It says that everyone is equal, all desires are equally valid, all action is equally valid, so everyone should compromise to get along.

Makes you think.

Straight people, he thinks, probably don’t spend this much time convincing themselves that they’re straight.

I feel this on so many levels.

Sometimes you just jump and hope it’s not a cliff.

Take a risk. Let go of all fears. Do the thing.

That’s the choice. I love him, with all that, because of all that. On purpose. I love him on purpose.

AWWWW!!!!!

Thinking about history makes me wonder how I’ll fit into it one day, I guess. And you too. I kinda wish people still wrote like that. History, huh? Bet we could make some.

Love it.
