Words worth hearing Vol.5

There is so much beautiful wisdom hidden within the pages of novels and I find they are simply not shared enough.

The stormlight archives by Brandon Sanderson is one of my favorite series, here are some great quotes from his characters(A.K.A himself:D)

“The most important words a man can say are, “I will do better.” These are not the most important words any man can say. I am a man, and they are what I needed to say.

The ancient code of the Knights Radiant says “journey before destination.” Some may call it a simple platitude, but it is far more. A journey will have pain and failure. It is not only the steps forward that we must accept. It is the stumbles. The trials. The knowledge that we will fail. That we will hurt those around us.

But if we stop, if we accept the person we are when we fall, the journey ends. That failure becomes our destination. To love the journey is to accept no such end. I have found, through painful experience, that the most important step a person can take is always the next one.

I’m certain some will feel threatened by this record. Some few may feel liberated. Most will simply feel that it should not exist. I needed to write it anyway.”

Expectation wasn’t just about what people expected of you. It was about what you expected of yourself. Someone has to start.
