Quote of the Day: Mistborn The Final Empire

“Belief isn’t simply a thing for fair times and bright days…What is belief – what is faith – if you don’t continue in it after failure?…Anyone can believe in someone, or something that always succeeds…But failure…ah, now, that is hard to believe in, certainly and truly. Difficult enough to have value. Sometimes we just have to wait long enough…then we find out why exactly it was that we kept believing…There’s always another secret.” 
― Brandon Sanderson, The Final Empire

“I’ve always been very confident in my immaturity.” 
― Brandon Sanderson, The Final Empire

“I’m not really sure why. But… do you stop loving someone just because they betray you? I don’t think so. That’s what makes the betrayal hurt so much – pain, frustration, anger… and I still loved her. I still do.” 
― Brandon Sanderson, The Final Empire

“Belief?”
“Yes,” Sazed said. “Tell me, Mistress. What is it that you believe?”
Vin frowned. “What kind of question is that?”
“The most important kind, I think.” 
― Brandon Sanderson, The Final Empire

“How do you ‘accidentally’ kill a noble man in his own mansion?”
“With a knife in the chest. Or, rather, a pair of knives in the chest…” 
― Brandon Sanderson, The Final Empire

What? Is that boy crazy?”
“Most young men his age are somewhat crazy, I think,” Sazed said with a smile. “However, this is hardly unexpected. Haven’t you noticed how he stares at you when you enter a room?”
“I thought he was just creepy.” 
― Brandon Sanderson, The Final Empire

“Women? Women are like…thunderstorms. They’re beautiful to look at, and sometimes they’re nice to listen to-but most of the time they’re just plain inconvenient.” 
― Brandon Sanderson, The Final Empire

“I think given the choice between loving Mare – betrayal included – and never knowing her, I’d chose love. I risked, and I lost, but the risk was still worth it.” 
― Brandon Sanderson, The Final Empire

“That’s kind of what trust is, isn’t it? A willful self-delusion.” 
― Brandon Sanderson, The Final Empire

“Are there any religions on your list that include the slaughter of noblemen as a holy duty?” 
― Brandon Sanderson, The Final Empire
