Hey guys! I am soooo close to being done with school, so things have been more than a little hectic lately with finals approaching. But even in the chaos, I was to shine some light on one of my favorite quotes! I am surprised that I have never actually taken a quote from this series before, because, dang, there is some GOOD stuff in it. Sometimes I’ll be reading, and I just have to stop because some good writing just slapped me in the face, you know? Anyways, here it is!
“Let them see my weakness, and let them see me overcome it.” – Kelsier (The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson)
If you’ve been keeping up with my blog (particularly my Princess Geek Reads posts), you know I’m a big Brandon Sanderson fan ever since I was introduced to Mistborn last year. As soon as I got into The Final Empire, the first entry of the Mistborn trilogy, I knew it was going to be a wild ride. Well….I just didn’t know it was going to be THAT wild. Anyway, Kelsier quickly became my favorite character, and it was in part because, man, his dialogue is really something else. Despite the fact that, in reality, Kelsier was a criminal with questionable morals, the way The Final Empire made him appear as a hero made him an extremely intriguing character. Simply put, he is a paragon of a flawed, yet likable, character. He was beat down by life so many times, he still got up every single time, and always had a smile on his face.
What do you think of this quote? Are you a Mistborn fan, too? Let me know in the comments below, I’d love to hear from you!
And as always, God bless and have a wonderful week!
