David Eddings quotes
For me, this requires it's own section.

“...only in the surrender of the light could the darkness prevail.”
David Eddings, King of the Murgos

“I've looked at the world for quite a few years now and I've found that if I don't laugh, I'll probably end up crying.”
David Eddings, Demon Lord of Karanda

“When love is involved no sacrifice is too great.”
David Eddings

“Consistency is the defense of a small mind.”
David Eddings, Seeress of Kell

“Water....I'm thirsty not dirty.”
David Eddings

“Will you never grow up?"
"I doubt it, and I certainly hope not.”
David Eddings, Seeress of Kell

“Don't wrench your shoulder out of its socket trying to pat yourself on the back," Beldin said sourly.”
David Eddings, Seeress of Kell

“But there's a world beyond what we can see and touch, and that world lives by its own laws. What may be impossible in this very ordinary world is very possible there, and sometimes the boundaries between the two worlds disappear, and then who can say what is possible and impossible?”
David Eddings, Pawn of Prophecy

“Nothing that's really worthwhile should be easy, Belgarion. If it's easy, we don't value it..."
David Eddings, Sorceress of Darshiva

“Nobles and peasants marry early. Businessmen tend to wait.”
David Eddings, Polgara the Sorceress

“Is it my birthday again? Already? Where does the time go?"
"Behind us --or in front. It depends on which way you are looking.”
David Eddings, Belgarath the Sorcerer
