Christopher Paolini
‘I cannot forgive, but I understand.’
Paolini quotes
Shall we dance, friend of my heart?
Paolini
When you can have anything you want by uttering a few words, the goal matters not, only the journey to it.




Paolini Christopher quotes
"Well, I suppose I won't see you for a while. So farewell, good luck, avoid roasted cabbage, don't eat ear wax, and look on the bright side of life!"
Paolini Christopher
‘Fight if you wish. Deny what is before you if it comforts you. But nothing you do can change your fate.’
Christopher Paolini quotes
‘It’s impossible to go through life unscathed. Nor should you want to. By the hurts we accumulate, we measure both our follies and our accomplishments.’
Christopher Paolini
"It seems a cold world without something … more."
"On the contrary," said Oromis, "it is a better world . A place where we are responsible for our own actions, where we can be kind to one another because we want to and because it is the right thing to do instead of being frightened into behaving by the threat of divine punishment. I won't tell you what to believe, Eragon. It is far better to be taught to think critically and then be allowed to make your own decisions than to have someone else's notions thrust upon you. You asked after our religion, and I have answered you true. Make of it what you will."
Paolini Christopher quotes
Applied properly, it [logic] can overcome any lack of wisdom, which one only gains through age and experience.
Paolini
The songs of the dead are the lamentations of the living.
Paolini Christopher
‘Then I guess we have no choice but to go forward. When have we ever had any choice but to go forward?’
Christopher Paolini
You must learn to see what you are looking at.




Christopher Paolini quotes
No-one can function properly without occasional peace and quiet.
Christopher Paolini
My father's work will not go unfinished, even if it takes me to the grave. That is what I want you, as a rider, to understand. All of Ajihad's plans, all his strategies and goals, they are mine now. I will not fail him by being weak. The empire will be brought down, Galbatorix will with dethroned, and the rightful government will be raised.
Paolini quotes
Better to die than to live in fear.
Paolini Christopher
‘I am not ready. But when will we ever be ready?’
Paolini Christopher quotes
‘When you teach them—teach them not to fear. Fear is good in small amounts, but when it is a constant, pounding companion, it cuts away at who you are and makes it hard to do what is right.’
Christopher Paolini
War was a catalog of madness.
Christopher Paolini quotes
‘I don’t know how else to teach you what you need to learn except by showing you your mistakes over and over again until you stop making them.’
Christopher Paolini
Death, he had come to believe, was a corrosive thing, and the more he was around it, the more it gnawed away at who he was.
Paolini Christopher
‘You of all people should know that everything in this world must be paid for, whether in gold, time, or blood.’
