Malazan Book quotes by Steven Erikson
#1. He swam at my feet,
Powerful arms in broad strokes
Sweeping the sand.
So I asked this man,
What seas do you swim?
And to this he answered,
'I have seen shells and the like
On this desert floor,
So I swim this land's memory
Thus honouring its past,'
Is the journey far, queried I.
'I cannot say,' he replied,
'For I shall drown long before
I am done.'

Malazan Book quotes by Steven Erikson
#2. Retribution seen in natural catastrophes is manufactured by all too eager

alone. But we all know, the world is inherited by the obnoxious, not the righteous #Quote by Steven Erikson

Malazan Book quotes by Steven Erikson
#5. People of civilized countenance made much of exposing the soft underbellies of their psyche - effete and sensitive were the brands of finer breeding. It was easy for them, safe, and that was the whole point, after all: a statement of coddled opulence that burned the throats of the poor more than any ostentatious show of wealth. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Malazan Book quotes by Steven Erikson
#6. Save your explanations, I got some questions for you first and you'd better answer them!' [slurred Hellian.]
'With what?' [Banaschar] sneered. 'Explanations?'
'No. Answers. There's a difference-'
'Really? How? What difference?'
'Explanations are what people use when they need to lie. Y'can always tell those,'cause those don't explain nothing and then they look at you like they just cleared things up when really they did the opposite and they know it and you know it and they know you know and you know they know that you know and they know you and you know them and maybe you go out for a pitcher later but who picks up the tab? That's what I want to know.'
'Right, and answers?'
'Answers is what I get when I ask questions. Answers is when you got no choice. I ask, you tell. I ask again, you tell some more. Then I break your fingers, 'cause I don't like what you're telling me, because those answers don't explain nothing! #Quote by Steven Erikson

Malazan Book quotes by Steven Erikson
#8. In that Malazan Book of the Fallen, the historians will write of our suffering, and they will speak of it as the suffering of those who served the Crippled God. As something ... fitting. And for our seeming fanaticism they will dismiss all that we were, and think only of what we achieved. Or failed to achieve.
And in so doing, they will miss the whole fucking point. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Malazan Book quotes by Luis Marques

Malazan Book quotes by Alice Clayton
#12. Have to keep those lawns as green as possible, even when there was a drought, you know. Or my smile and nod when Mrs. Snodgrass went on and on about a racy book that everyone was talking about but no one would admit to reading, when in fact I know every woman there had read it. I even smiled and nodded when Mr. Peterson lectured us about illegal immigration, when I knew for a fact that his nanny was undocumented. #Quote by Alice Clayton
Malazan Book quotes by C.S. Lewis
#13. Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Malazan Book quotes by Anonymous

Malazan Book quotes by Shannon Hale
#16. I agree with Miss Erstwhile, you are acting like a scarecrow. I do not know why you put on this act, Nobley, when around the port table or out in the field you're rather a pleasant fellow."
"Really? That is curious," Jane said. "Why, Mr. Nobley, are you generous in your attentions with gentlemen and yet taciturn and withdrawn around the fairer sex?"
Mr. Nobley's eyes were back on the printed page, though they didn't scan the lines. "Perhaps I do not possess the type of conversation that would interest a lady."
"You say 'perhaps' as though you do not believe it yourself. What else might be the reason, sir?" Jane smiled. Needling Mr. Nobley was feeling like a very productive use of the evening.
"Perhaps another reason might be that I myself do not find the conversation of ladies to be very stimulating." His eyes were dark.
"Hm, I just can't imagine why you're still unmarried."
"I might say the same for you."
"Mr. Nobley!" cried Aunt Saffronia.
"No, it's all right, Aunt," Jane said. "I asked for it. And I don't even mind answering." She put a hand on her hip and faced him. "One reason why I am unmarried is because there aren't enough men with guts to put away their little boy fears and commit their love and stick it out."
"And perhaps the men do not stick it out for a reason."
"And what reason might that be?"
"The reason is women." He slammed his book shut. "Women make life impossible until the man has to be the one to end i #Quote by Shannon Hale
Malazan Book quotes by Bernard Cornwell
#17. Judy couldn't move to Britain for family reasons, so I had to come to the States, and the U.S. government wouldn't give me a Green Card, so I airily told her I'd write a book. #Quote by Bernard Cornwell
Malazan Book quotes by Rose McGowan
#18. If you don't read - 42 percent of US college graduates never read another book in their life after they graduate - entertainment and online media are where your thought are being formed. Those media products don't provide you with a mirror of your life, do they? Do you see yourself on that screen? Probably not, so why are these men in charge of the mirror in your mind? When people finally understand where 99 percent of their media is coming from, I hope the'll switch off or at least be aware of what they are seeing, choose wisely, and start harassing these studios until they fix their ways. #Quote by Rose McGowan
Malazan Book quotes by Harriet Martineau
#19. Of tobacco and its consequences, I will say nothing but that the practice is at too bad a pass to leave hope that anything that could be said in books would work a cure. If the floors of boarding-houses, and the decks of steam-boats, and the carpets of the Capitol, do not sicken the Americans into a reform; if the warnings of physicians are of no avail, what remains to be said? I dismiss the nauseous subject. #Quote by Harriet Martineau
Malazan Book quotes by Malcolm X
#20. There is nothing in our book, the Qur'an, that teaches us to suffer peacefully. Our religion teaches us to be intelligent. Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone lays a hand on you, send him to the cemetery. #Quote by Malcolm X
Malazan Book quotes by Truman Capote
#21. I always write the end of everything first. I always write the last chapters of my books before I write the beginning ... Then I go back to the beginning. I mean, it's always nice to know where you're going is my theory. #Quote by Truman Capote
Malazan Book quotes by Carew Papritz

Malazan Book quotes by Stephen Hawking

Malazan Book quotes by Sophia Amoruso
#25. the whole philosophy behind this book is that true success lies in knowing your weaknesses and playing to your strengths. In short, when you suck at something and don't want it anyway, cut your losses and move on. #Quote by Sophia Amoruso
Malazan Book quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#26. And the candle by the light of which she had been reading that book filled with anxieties, deceptions, grief and evil, flared up brighter than ever, lit up for her all that had once been darkness, sputtered, grew dim and went out for ever. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Malazan Book quotes by Charlotte Rampling

Malazan Book quotes by Robert Purvis

Malazan Book quotes by Dorothy Parker
#30. This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force. #Quote by Dorothy Parker
Malazan Book quotes by Erika Tamar
#31. I think it'll be interesting. The Aborigines certainly are, Lizabeth said. They have a tradition called the walkabout. It's a challenge for boys when they come of age. I don't know about the girls-the book didn't say. And grown men walkabout, too, when they're troubled.
What's a walkabout?
The book said it's to find your true self, but I don't really know what that means Lizabeth said. #Quote by Erika Tamar
Malazan Book quotes by David Mitchell
#32. The art of the novelist is not unrelated to the illness of multiple personality disorder. It's a much milder form. But the better the book, the nearer to the padded cell you are. #Quote by David Mitchell
Malazan Book quotes by Michael E. Martinez
#33. Extended discourse, whether in the form of novels or expository treatises, presents the mind with a category of stimuli that can guide thinking though a long, complex, and coherent line of reasoning. Books structure ideas almost uniquely: The vocabulary and thought forms that are commonplace in book-length texts are rare in daily conversations. Books present a much wider range of vocabulary, concepts, and inferences than can be found in our daily banter with friends and family members. #Quote by Michael E. Martinez
Malazan Book quotes by Phoebe Cary
#34. Books were put out, and 'had a run,' / Like coinage from the mint; / But which could fill the place of one, / That one they wouldn't print? #Quote by Phoebe Cary
Malazan Book quotes by Marlo Thomas
#35. If it's one thing we learned from the first book, it's that you don't have to be a prizefighter, or a world-renowned architect, or a concert violinist to have been affected by the power of words. #Quote by Marlo Thomas
Malazan Book quotes by Terry Eagleton
#36. Even in the act of fleeing modern ideologies, however, literary theory reveals its often unconscious complicity with them, betraying its elitism, sexism or individualism in the very 'aesthetic' or 'unpolitical' language it finds natural to use of the literary text. It assumes, in the main, that at the centre of the world is the contemplative individual self, bowed over its book, striving to gain touch with experience, truth, reality, history or tradition. Other things matter too, of course - this individual is in personal relationship with others, and we are always much more than readers - but it is notable how often such individual consciousness, set in its small circle of relationships, ends up as the touchstone of all else. The further we move from the rich inwardness of the personal life, of which literature is the supreme exemplar, the more drab, mechanical and impersonal existence becomes. It is a view equivalent in the literary sphere to what has been called possessive individualism in the social realm, much as the former attitude may shudder at the latter: it reflects the values of a political system which subordinates the sociality of human life to solitary individual enterprise. #Quote by Terry Eagleton
Malazan Book quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#37. An inspirational writer's life is an open book that never shuts. Choose your words carefully. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Malazan Book quotes by William Gaddis
#38. Reading Proust isn't just reading a book, it's an experience and you can't reject an experience. #Quote by William Gaddis
Malazan Book quotes by Michael Musto
#39. For years, I've pushed the idea of a column compilation book mainly because it would be easy - I could just staple 'em all together. But publishers have been resistent, feeling the material dates. #Quote by Michael Musto
Malazan Book quotes by Krishnaraj HK
#40. Writing a book should be the best way to break into someone's house. #Quote by Krishnaraj HK
Malazan Book quotes by Marie Ohanesian Nardin
#41. I understand the circumstances, and I chose you. Amore mio, you must believe that nothing can change my choice or how much I love you. There's only one person who can keep me from you, and that's you. #Quote by Marie Ohanesian Nardin
Malazan Book quotes by Hilary Mantel
#42. Sometimes you buy a book, powerfully drawn to it, but then it just sits on the shelf. Maybe you flick through it, the ghost of your original purpose at your elbow, but it's not so much rereading as re-dusting. Then one day you pick it up, take notice of the contents; your inner life realigns. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Malazan Book quotes by Lani Lynn Vale
#43. Every moment that I had free, I chose to read because I loved to escape to the alternate realities. Other worlds where there was always a happy ending. #Quote by Lani Lynn Vale
Malazan Book quotes by Alberto Manguel
#44. A book brings its own history to the reader. #Quote by Alberto Manguel

Malazan Book quotes by Jolina Petersheim
#46. I encourage anyone who has gone through hardships to look back through their life's chapters and see what can be turned into a book. For you never know what heartache God, one day, can turn into a redemptive story. #Quote by Jolina Petersheim
Malazan Book quotes by Lauren F. Winner
#47. All through the Torah, God is pictured as having hands, a face. The rabbis say, Of course God doesn't really have hands, but the Torah uses the language of faces and hands and eyes so that we will have an easier time wrapping our minds around this infinite, handless God. That is what you say if you are a rabbi. But if you are a good novelist, you actually give Him hands and eyes by the end of the book, and that is what the Bible does. It says, in Deuteronomy, that God brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm; and then it gives Him an arm in the Gospel of Matthew. #Quote by Lauren F. Winner
Malazan Book quotes by Terry Pratchett
#48. Mum had done everything you need to educate a kid. She made me a kid who likes books and she told me about 'Wind in the Willows' and read it and I thought this is weird, Rat, Mole, Toad and my first ever Bolshie thought - you know about 'The Wind in the Willows.' #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Malazan Book quotes by Nalini Singh
#49. So this book, while continuing the Psy-Changeling storyline - because nothing is ever static in this world - is also a walk through the interconnected lives of many of the characters who've become important to us over the past books and novellas. With #Quote by Nalini Singh
