I’ve only started reading the latest entry in Brandon Sanderson’s The Stormlight Archive, Oathbringer, and I’ve already found an incredible quote. Don’t worry, this isn’t a super-spoilery line. It’s actually from a flashback.
Life was about momentum. Pick a direction and don’t let anything–man or storm–turn you aside.
I don’t think I’ve seen a line of inspiration that good in a long time.
