    Doing what you like is freedom

    Liking what you do is happiness

    Freedom to starve is no freedom

    If you're searching for truth, stay out of the backyard... that's where I keep all the bodies.

    When life gives you lemons... take a big ol' bite and say, "Man, these lemons SUCK!"

    We can't control the way other people think of us... we can only control the way we think of them. Well, unless you're psionic--then you can TOTALLY control the way other people think of you.

    If you always worry about what's right, there won't be anything left.

    If you spend all your life looking behind you rather than appreciating the now... you might spot an assassin or ninjas before they have a chance to sneak up on you and kill you.

    "I'll tell you why you'll never be a hero. Your order... they don't hunt my kin for what we do. They hunt us for what we are. They hunt us for something, most of us weren't able didn't want. I might be an animal. But you are a scared little child,  throwing stones at things that are different."

    Here are some random quotes from a Skyrim fanfiction I'm writing. 

    'Mercy is not always bloodless.'
    -On making merciful decisions

    'It seems I have an unfortunate knack for making unpopular decisions.'
    'Justice is not popular, master.'
    -Part of a conversation between a leader and one of his men

    'As your leader I am your servant, and in serving you, I shall make your life better by making you better.'
    -Part of a cheesy leadership speech

    'Is it not faith to love what you do not understand?'
    -On religion

    'People of Tamriel, I shall not fight your battles for you. I am here to shield you and pave a way to your salvation, but the sword is yours to carry.'
    -Part of a battle speech by a different guy

    'What use is a heart that you will not use? When companions fall in the throngs of war and innocent blood is spilled, your heart goes out to them. But you run. At the height of your heart’s cry, cowardice runs in your veins.'
    -Part of a rant to a cowardly Dragonborn

    'We are not spoon-fed wisdom; we are made to search for it. And if a man is to learn something, the Gods will throw it at him!'
    -Part of a lecture

    '[Trees] are as much alive as we are, Master Traianus. Living things do not need to bleed and scream to feel pain. They do not need a face to be people. Not in Valenwood, master.'
    -Part of an argument/discussion about trees

    'A hero doesn’t have to be some grandstanding saviour of the world. He can just be a man, a plebeian if you will, who has the kindness in his heart to smile at a passing stranger.'
    -On heroism and altruism

    'Heroes don’t want to be born, Ruunen, but they are born because they must.'
    -On how much life sucks when you have to save the world

    Edit: Wow oops this is way long.

    Seriously though, this is amazing! Where's the fanfiction? It totally beats out what I tried to write a few months ago (I'm going to try and write a fanfic that expands on what Mercer Frey means when he said "Shadows take me").

    Oh gosh dude uhh I'm really shy about the fanfiction at the moment. XD Thank you so much for saying that, honestly I think it made my life. I've only written a prologue so far and I'm in the middle of writing the first chapter, which is taking quite a while because I've got school and exams and stuff. 

    I reckon your fanfic on Mercer Frey would be pretty dang awesome though! I'll certainly keep an eye out for it on this site.

    Also this is only dialogue. I'm not sure if my rather meandering writing style would be to your liking, or my tendency to make up new racial traditions, unloreful quasi-logical explanations of magick and other such aberrations.  But I do really appreciate your compliment!

    Don't worry! My old fanfic took place in the 5th era, when all the extinct elf races came back, Aedra took human forms and was in steampunk. I stopped because I realized, I was writing it for the wrong reasons (and I can't concentrate even if I wanted to)

    What I meant was if you have will, skill will follow. Thanks for the unnecessary compliment though.

    Here is one that is more paradoxical and contradictory than inspiring.

    "Madness is when the mind decides abandoning logic is the most logical thing to do to save its sanity."
