Published on February 4, 2004 By EFalgui In Books
Here are a few quotes from one of my favorite authors Terry Goodkind:

1. "Many men rose to the bait only if it squirmed." -Terry Goodkind, _Faith of the Fallen_

2. "The problems just kept mounting, without any end in sight. It seemed like the more people [that were] helped, the more people there were who needed help." -Terry Goodkind, _Faith of the Fallen_

4. "The more selfless she was, the more it only confirmed her superiority." -Terry Goodkind, _Faith of the Fallen_

5. "The way things are now, you won't know. It's the things you never heard of, haven't seen before, don't expect, and can't even imagine, that are going to be coming for you." -Terry Goodkind, _Faith of the Fallen_

6. "Admitting that you don't know something is the first step to learning... Every day, I amaze myself with all I don't know." -Terry Goodkind, _Faith of the Fallen_

7. "In battle, if you abandon the gates to help a fallen comrade, you have given in to a weakness: your inability to steel yourself to an immediate suffering in order to prevent suffering on a much greater scale." -Terry Goodkind, _Faith of the Fallen_

8. "When you're the leader, everything is your fault." -Terry Goodkind, _Faith of the Fallen_

9. "Ordinary men who had never before acted violently, could, in the right circumstances, be incited to great brutality. With the way they viewed mankind as sinful, wretched, and evil, it was only a small step more to actually doing evil." -Terry Goodkind, _Faith of the Fallen_

10. "The gift was a curse, and a test. It was a curse because it gave her abilities others didn't have, and it was a test to see if she would wrongly exert that superiority." -Terry Goodkind, _Faith of the Fallen_

12. "The sovereign I can allow to rule me is reason. The first law of reason is this: what exists, exists; what is, is. From this irreducible, bedrock principle, all knowledge is built. This is the foundation from which life is embraced. Reason is a choice. Wishes and whims are not facts, nor are they a means to discovering them. Reason is our only way of grasping reality- it's our basic tool of survival. We are free to evade the effort of thinking, to reject reason, but we are not free to avoid the penalty of the abyss we refuse to see." -Terry Goodkind

14. "The world is complex beyond our comprehension. Only the Creator understands how it all works together." -Terry Goodkind, "Soul of the Fire"
