Quotable Quotes: Pillars of Creation

The Pillars of Creation (Sword of Truth, Book 7)These are the quotable quotes that I found while reading The Pillars of Creation.

Althea is speaking to Jennsen on page 206
"You are somebody; you are Jennsen, a smart girl with a brain. You should not kneel before me and plead ignorance, telling me what you cannot do while asking instead for others to do for you.
"If you want to be a slave in life, then continue going around asking for others to do for you. They will oblige, but you will find the price is your choices, your freedom, your life itself. They will do for you, and as a result you will be in bondage to them forever, having given your identity away for a paltry price. Then, and only then, you will be a nobody, a slave, because you yourself and nobody else made it so."

And again we are reminded on page 207
"Magic is a tool, not a solution."
 Finally, on page 546, we get a lesson on love, and a good one, too.
Sword of Truth, Boxed Set III, Books 7-9: The Pillars of Creation, Naked Empire, Chainfire"You can't love anyone or anything until you love your own existence, first. Love can only grow out of a respect for your own life. when you love yourself, your own existence, then you love someone who can enhance your existence, share it wit you, and make i more pleasurable."
"To truly love someone you must revel in their existence because they make life all the more wonderful."
