“Whatever you are physically...male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy --
all those things matter less than what your heart contains.
If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior.
All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside.”
-- Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

“Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong.
No matter how fast light travels,
it finds the darkness has always got there first,
and is waiting for it.”
-- Terry Pratchett, Reaper Man
“But you can't stay in the dark for so long.
Something inside of you starts to fade
and you become like a starving person, crazy-hungry for light.”
-- Amy Tan, The Joy Luck Club
