Quote of the Week 10/19/21

It’s finally time for another quote! This time I’m using one from my favorite book as of now, Brandon Sanderson’s The Final Empire! I first listened to it on Audible back in May/June, and my gosh was I impressed. Brandon Sanderson is now also my favorite author, which you know if you read my early Princess Geek Reads posts. Anyway, I was reminded of this quote the other day, and I knew right then that it just had to be this week’s quote. Take a look! (Major Spoiler Warning!)

“Belief isn’t simply a thing for fair times and bright days. What is belief – what is faith – if you don’t continue in it after failure?” – Mistborn: The Final Empire

Near the end of The Final Empire, our main cast of characters find themselves at rock bottom after the death of their beloved leader, Kelsier. They’ve all lost hope in defeating the tyrannical Lord Ruler, who is ruling over Luthadel at the time. With Kelsier gone, how can they succeed?

This quote is spoken by Sazed to the main character, Vin. Vin has lost the only father figure she’s ever known, and she’s more than a little down and out. Sazed may have been the only character with belief in the dream Keslier had of liberating Luthadel, and he shared it with the rest of the team and gave them hope.

What do you think about this quote? Let me know in the comments below! God bless y’all and have a wonderful week!
