The Last Book in the Universe Quotes
I know who the real hero is, and it isn't me or brave Lanaya. It's an old man with a white beard and a walking stick and a heart so big it won't let him stop thinking he can change the world by writing down things in a book no one will ever read. Shut up! I'm thinking maybe letting the latches burn is the right idea. Let everything burn until there's nothing left but ashes and cool rain. Do not despair, my friend. Today is theirs, but the future is ours.

It all boils down to this: A person has only two options in life, to do something or to do nothing.
