Go at it boldly, and you'll find unexpected forces closing round you and coming to your aid.

-Basil King

Have you ever wondered what marks our time here? If one life can really make an impact on the world? Or if the choices we make matter? I believe they do. And I believe that one man can change many lives... for better or worse!

-One Tree Hill, Lucas

There's no shame in being afraid. Hell, we're all afraid. What you gotta do is figure out what you're afraid of, because when you put a face on it you can beat it. Better yet, you can use it.

-One Tree Hill, Whitey

Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.

- George R.R. Martin, Game Of Thrones

Fear cuts deeper than swords

- George R.R. Martin, Game Of Thrones

What is honor compared to a woman's love? What is duty against the feel of a newborn son in your arms . . . or the memory of a brother's smile? Wind and words. Wind and words. We are only human, and the gods have fashioned us for love. That is our great glory, and our great tragedy.

-George R.R. Martin, Game Of Thrones

Some old wounds never truly heal, and bleed again at the slightest word.

-George R.R. Martin, Game Of Thrones

And I have a tender spot in my heart for cripples and bastards and broken things.

-George R.R. Martin, Game Of Thrones

The things we love destroy us every time, lad. Remember that.

-George R.R. Martin, Game Of Thrones

* Winter Is Coming

-George R.R. Martin, Game Of Thrones

Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.

- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

I will not say, do not weep, for not all tears are an evil.

-J.R.R. Tolkien

Not all those who wander are lost.

- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
