Fighting Fantasy quotes by Marc Gascoigne
#1. Further, deeper still, those whose true names are for ever hidden from the world picked up the pattern of vibrations in the ether, and something akin to joy stirred in their fathomless minds. Perhaps soon they would be called upon to feed. #Quote by Marc Gascoigne
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Barbara Hambly
#2. The question is always the answer, provided you want the answer badly enough. #Quote by Barbara Hambly
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Jack Campbell
#3. You're not fighting for abstractions. No one does. Humans pay lip service to that, to big causes and great purposes, but any politician of any skill soon learns that what really motivates people is the small, personal things. Close friends, family, the small area they call home. They wrap those things around ideals and call them precious, but they're precious for the smallest and closest of reasons. Soldiers may swear to fight for their flag, but they really fight because of the soldiers next to them. #Quote by Jack Campbell
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Emma  Hart
#4. Every time I kiss you, I taste the rest of my life. I wont stop fighting for you until you taste yours, too."
Aaron Stone #Quote by Emma Hart
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Marie Brennan
#5. I read a lot of the 'Pern books' growing up - basically up through 'All the Weyrs of Pern,' maybe a couple after that. As far as formative dragon influences are concerned, she's probably one of the top ones; I know I read other fantasy novels that had them, but none particularly stick in mind. #Quote by Marie Brennan
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Jenna Lindsey
#6. I think one who thrives on death may be defeated by life.
Elswyth, from A Precarious Journey Into Magic #Quote by Jenna Lindsey
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Dinah Maria Murlock Craik
#7. Gossip, public, private, social to fight against it either by word or pen seems, after all, like fighting with shadows. Everybody laughs at it, protests against it, blames and despises it; yet everybody does it, or at least encourages others in it: quite innocently, unconsciously, in such a small, harmless fashion yet we do it. We must talk about something, and it is not all of us who can find a rational topic of conversation, or discuss it when found. #Quote by Dinah Maria Murlock Craik
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Toni Morrison
#8. All of our waste which we dumped on her and which she absorbed. And all of our beauty, which was hers first and which she gave to us. All of us--all who knew her--felt so wholesome after we cleaned ourselves on her. We were so beautiful when we stood astride her ugliness. Her simplicity decorated us, her guilt sanctified us, her pain made us glow with health, her awkwardness made us think we had a sense of humor. Her inarticulateness made us believe we were eloquent. Her poverty kept us generous. Even her waking dreams we used--to silence our own nightmares. And she let us, and thereby deserved our contempt. We honed our egos on her, padded our characters with her frailty, and yawned in the fantasy of our strength.

And fantasy it was, for we were not strong, only aggressive; we were not free, merely licensed; we were not compassionate, we were polite; not good, but well behaved. We courted death in order to call ourselves brave, and hid like thieves from life. We substituted good grammar for intellect; we switched habits to simulate maturity; we rearranged lies and called it truth, seeing in the new pattern of an old idea the Revelation and the Word. #Quote by Toni Morrison
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Amanda Bouchet
#9. When we first found each other, I was a mess, full of conflict and fear. His steadfastness and unwavering faith in me helped to save me from myself, and from what I could become. Right now, he'd kill mother for me. Or he'd watch me kill her myself. He also understands this choice and how it's a part of me. #Quote by Amanda Bouchet
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#10. I'd have much rather gotten dragged into someone else's fight than face what was waiting for me. Other people's emotional pain, no matter how painful, is so much less painful than your own. #Quote by Laurell K. Hamilton
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Terry Spear
#11. Arms folded across his muscled chest, Lachlan stood way too close to her.
"Did you get tired of fighting?" she asked with a hint of a smile.
"I'm a lover, not a fighter. #Quote by Terry Spear
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Jay Leno
#12. General Colin Powell shocked a lot of people in Washington by speaking out against President Bush's policies, saying that the world is beginning to doubt the moral basis of our fight against terrorism. That's what I think he said - it was hard to hear him because he was being hustled out of the room to his cell in Guantanamo Bay. #Quote by Jay Leno
Fighting Fantasy quotes by David Halberstam
#13. Baseball was rooted not just in the past but in the culture of the country; it was celebrated in the nation's literature and songs. When a poor American boy dreamed of escaping his grim life, his fantasy probably involved becoming a professional baseball player. It was not so much the national sport as the binding national myth. #Quote by David Halberstam
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Avi Arad
#14. For me, the toughest thing for kids to deal with is when the parents are fighting. It's not violence on them - it's the feeling of violence in the family. #Quote by Avi Arad
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Natan Sharansky
#15. In dictatorships you need courage to fight evil; in the free world you need courage to see evil. #Quote by Natan Sharansky
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Esther Peterson
#16. If a man fights his adversaries, he's called determined. If a woman does it, she's frustrated. #Quote by Esther Peterson
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Giacomo Casanova
#17. Real love is the love that sometimes arises after sensual pleasure: if it does, it is immortal; the other kind inevitably goes stale, for it lies in mere fantasy. #Quote by Giacomo Casanova
Fighting Fantasy quotes by T.A. Miles
#18. His father was an ass and he is an ass. I imagine sooner than I should like I shall be playing uncle to a litter of asses. #Quote by T.A. Miles
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Ralph Fiennes
#19. Education, awareness and prevention are the key, but stigmatisation and exclusion from family is what makes people suffer most #Quote by Ralph Fiennes
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#20. I don't say things like "the grace of God." All that's white noise to me, not because I'm an intellectual. For many people, it's gibberish. Likewise, the idea that the Koran was dictated by an archaic illiterate is a fantasy. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Michael Kanuckel
#21. from the upcoming novel, Agent White:

A figure dressed all in black ran across the rooftops in the rain. A black cloak fluttered behind him as he ran two and sometimes three stories above the sidewalk where Ezra Beckitt stood. Long silver hair tied back in a ponytail flew out behind him, exposing ears that came to sharp points. His left ear was pierced with a silver ring, high up in the cartilage. Like the old man, this black figure wore a sword; but this weapon was long and thin, slightly curved. The blade stuck out behind him for three and a half feet, almost seeming to glow against the grey backdrop of the rain-soaked cityscape.
Suddenly, the figure in black looked down into the street and saw Ezra there. More, he saw Ezra seeing him. Startled, he lost his sure footing and slid down the steep incline of an older building's metal roof, the busy street below waiting to catch him in an asphalt embrace. The figure in black got his feet under himself and pushed, flying out into space above the street. For an eternity Ezra watched him, suspended in the air and the rain with his cloak spread in midnight ripples around him, and then the figure in black flipped neatly and landed on the sidewalk half a block away. The pavement cracked, pushing up in twisted humps around the figure in black's tall leather boots. Before the sound of this impact even reached Ezra the figure was up and gone, dashing through the morning throngs waiting for buses or headed to the 'tram sta #Quote by Michael Kanuckel
Fighting Fantasy quotes by G.R. Matthews
#22. The battle for the Wall tended to ebb and flow like the tide, Haung noted. The attackers would crest the Wall and fight like demons for every stone of territory in an effort to establish a safe zone from which to expand their presence. The battle would descend from carefully ordered lines into pockets of a chaos. Each soldier forgot, in those moments, that they were fighting for their country, that they were weapons of their respective generals. In those moments, as swords stabbed and swung, as shields were raised and men screamed out in fear and anger, they were totally selfish, they were fighting only for their lives. That is not to say that there not moments of altruism, but even those had overtones of selfishness, of self-preservation. You saved the man next to you, if you could, so that they in turn could save you. Once the Mongols were pushed from the Wall, the tide ebbed and a moment of calm descended. Each man, Haung included, spent their first breath wondering whether they were still alive and unhurt. The second breath was given in thanks that all was well. With the third intake of life giving air, thoughts turned to their comrades. The selfishness and joy of survival was brushed away, hidden in the pit of shame that each man dug for themselves in their first real battle. In that small window between high and low tide, civilisation returned. #Quote by G.R. Matthews
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Red Tash
#23. Oh, hell. You're a fairy," I said.
"Yeah," he said. "You know, they call it 'being gay' nowadays, but sure, whatever. #Quote by Red Tash
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Karen Azinger
#24. Splendor was the decree of the day. #Quote by Karen Azinger
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Charles Stanley
#25. Nations fight against nations, in marriages people fight against each other, children fight against each other. We are in warfare, in a national warfare, and in warfare with each other and with ourselves. #Quote by Charles Stanley
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Mary Ruwart
#26. Americans have the mistaken viewpoint that Lady Liberty is only a peacetime luxury who is ill-equipped to fight the nasties. Therefore, they reason, we need an equally nasty Big Brother. Americans have forgotten that Lady Liberty is one ferocious mother when protecting her children. #Quote by Mary Ruwart
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Cassandra Clare
#27. Charlotte slammed the paper down onto her desk with an exclamation of rage. "Aloysius Starkweather is the most stubborn, hypocritical, obstinate, degenerate - " She broke off, clearly fighting for control of her temper. Tessa had never seen Charlotte's mouth so firmly set into a hard line.
"Would you like a thesaurus?" Will inquired. "You seem to be running out of words. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Siddhartha Mukherjee
#28. One day, I had a patient who was going through chemotherapy who came to me and said, 'I'm going to go on with what I'm doing, but I need you to tell me what it is that I'm fighting.' #Quote by Siddhartha Mukherjee
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Shelby Foote
#29. People want to know why the South is so interested in the Civil War. I had maybe, it's a rough guess, about fifty fistfights in my life. Out of those fifty fistfights, the ones that I had the most vivid memory of were the ones I lost. I think that's one reason why the South remembers the war more than the North does. #Quote by Shelby Foote
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Garth Nix
#30. I'm not going," he said. He held up the Third key like a weapon. Sensing his mood, it grew longer and sharper, till he was holding a trident as long as he was tall ... "And anyone who tries to make me is going to suffer."
"Twice," added the voice under the table. #Quote by Garth Nix
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Ami Blackwelder
#31. Her caramel skin and curly beach sand hair spreads in wavy chops like the choppy storm waves on the ocean. Her fluffy rose colored lips glisten with eyes emerald green and almond shaped set deep into her face and yet when she looks at you with those same deep set eyes, it feels like they jump out, speaking to you. #Quote by Ami Blackwelder
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Mark Helprin
#32. Only certain portions of the line had to undergo carnage in the French style, but knowledge of it was all-pervasive. Everything the 19th River Guard knew came from quiet meetings in the communications trenches, conversations with sleepless, bitter infantrymen who had been transferred up from the fiercer fighting in the south. If some of the River Guard were on the edge, many of the regular infantry had gone over it long before. Especially disturbing to the naval contingent were reports from down below that Italian troops now were shot quite casually for disciplinary reasons, and that the Italian generals, like their French counterparts, were executing men in decimations for crimes they had not committed. Men with families were pulled from the ranks along with equally mystified adolescents and put to death for acts attributed to others whom they had never seen. #Quote by Mark Helprin
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Giles Duley
#33. I don't see myself as being injured by a landmine or the Taliban; I was injured by ignorance and hatred. When people do these things, they want to create more hatred. Fight it with love and education. #Quote by Giles Duley
Fighting Fantasy quotes by J.K. Rowling
#34. That's right," said Luna encouragingly, as if they were back in the Room of Requirement and this was simply spell practice for the D.A. "That's right, Harry ... come on, think of something happy ... "
"Something happy?" he said, his voice cracked.
"We're all still here," she whispered, "We're still fighting. Come on, now ... #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Walker Percy
#35. In this world goodness is destined to be defeated. But a man must go down fighting. That is the victory. To do anything less is to be less than a man. #Quote by Walker Percy
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Lionel Suggs
#36. Every time the sky cries, it is because an angel has died ... Lucifer started a war in Heaven, and it persists even now. So if God cannot keep his angels under control, what makes you believe that he can keep humanity under control? #Quote by Lionel Suggs
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Evan Bayh
#37. To win the war on terror, we must know who our friends are and where our enemies are hiding. We can't continue fighting terrorism using the same foreign policy blueprints that were in place before September 11th. #Quote by Evan Bayh
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Susan Sontag
#38. Painters and sculptors under the Nazis often depicted the nude, but they were forbidden to show any bodily imperfections. Their nudes look like pictures in physique magazines: pinups which are both sanctimoniously asexual and (in a technical sense) pornographic, for they have the perfection of a fantasy. #Quote by Susan Sontag
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Kate Beckinsale
#39. It is very different. I mean, it was immediately different because it's a human being and it's not a vampire and it's not fighting monsters. This isn't the kind of movie that's got the comic book style of fighting to it. It was a bit more gritty. #Quote by Kate Beckinsale
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Wovoka
#40. You must not fight. Do no harm to anyone. Do right always. #Quote by Wovoka
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Christopher De Bellaigue
#41. He seemed to believe that every battle was worth fighting. #Quote by Christopher De Bellaigue
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Linda Howard
#42. Women, music, beer, and pie. Rurik, you're just an all-American guy. #Quote by Linda Howard
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#43. Impossible," he said, and switched to Igbo. "Ama m atu inu. I even know proverbs." "Yes. The basic one everybody knows. A frog does not run in the afternoon for nothing." "No. I know serious proverbs. Akota ife ka ubi, e lee oba. If something bigger than the farm is dug up, the barn is sold." "Ah, you want to try me?" she asked, laughing. "Acho afu adi ako n'akpa dibia. The medicine man's bag has all kinds of things." "Not bad," he said. "E gbuo dike n'ogu uno, e luo na ogu agu, e lote ya. If you kill a warrior in a local fight, you'll remember him when fighting enemies. #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Brom
#44. If not so tragic, it would be laughable. Both sides os blinded by their fear and hate of each other that they couldn't see that they were all fighting for the same thing- for the men to leave this island. Insanity! #Quote by Brom
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Ming-Dao Deng
#45. Build your life brick upon brick,
Live a life of truth,
And you will look back on a life of truth.
Live a life of fantasy,
And you will look back on delusion. #Quote by Ming-Dao Deng
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Edward W. Robertson
#46. She was tired of hearing about guns. It was all these people thought about. Carrying them. Using them. Fighting over them. Such stupid things. Anyone could use them. Anyone could pull a trigger from across a field. They rewarded cowardice. They made people think that violence was a quick and clean and easy thing. If the men on the boat had to kill with their hands, not one in ten would have the stomach for it. #Quote by Edward W. Robertson
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Halo Scot
#47. Darkness swirls around her. … The darkness of eternity. Of hope spelled in the stars. … A promise we are not alone. A promise we are part of something greater. #Quote by Halo Scot
Fighting Fantasy quotes by Jane Badler
#48. Most of my avant garde fashion is saved for my videos and for the stage. In real life, I tend towards a classy, black Goth look. I love black, a few sparkles, false eyelashes and boots. But when I perform, I love fantasy and props. #Quote by Jane Badler
