Harry Dresden, Storm Front (Jim Butcher)

I'd made the vampire cry. Great. I felt like a real superhero. Harry Dresden, breaker of monsters' hearts.

Two wizards at the University,
Equal Rites (Terry Pratchett)

- "While I'm still confused and uncertain, it's on a much higher plane, d'you see, and at least I know I'm bewildered about the really fundamental and important facts of the universe."

- They both savored the strange warm glow of being much more ignorant than ordinary people, who were only ignorant of ordinary things.

Kelsier, Mistborn (Brandon Sanderson)

I love the quotes! Especially the one about always being on time (it makes me feel so much better about my habitual lateness). :)

"If you're always on time, it implies that you never have anything better you should be doing" - ouch! What does it mean when one is early?

While I love this quote, I have to admit to being one of those people who is usually early. But I would make allowances for Kelsier because he is just so charming.
