  1. I adore all the ones listed! A few of my favourites might be:

    “Odysseus inclines his head. "True. But fame is a strange thing. Some men gain glory after they die, while others fade. What is admired in one generation is abhorred in another." He spread his broad hands. "We cannot say who will survive the holocaust of memory. Who knows?" He smiles. "Perhaps one day even I will be famous. Perhaps more famous than you.” - Madeline Miller, 'The Song of Achilles'

    “Fanaticism is the opposite of love. A wise man once told me - he’s a Muslim, by the way- that he has more in common with a rational, reasonable-minded Jew than he does with a fanatic from his own religions. He had more in common with a rational, reasonable-minded Christian or Buddhist or Hindu than he does with a fanatic from his own religion. In fact, he had more in common with a rational, reasonable-minded atheist than he does with a fanatic from his own religion. I agree with him, and I feel the same way. I also agree with Winston Churchhill, who once defined a fanatic as someone who won’t change his mind and can’t change the subject.” - Gregory David Roberts, 'Shantaram'

    “Sometimes I think everyone is just pretending to be brave, and none of us really are. Maybe pretending is how you get brave, I don't know.” - George R. R. Martin, 'A Storm of Swords'
