Looking for a little something to put me in the mood for making something new and amazing. However, I always come back to Rothfuss. Though not a terrible place to go at all.
“I have an apple that thinks its a pear. And a bun that thinks it’s a cat. And a lettuce that thinks its a lettuce.’ ‘It’s a clever lettuce then.’ ‘Hardly,’ she said with a delicate snort. ‘Why would anything clever think it’s a lettuce?’ ‘Even if it is a lettuce?’ I asked. ‘Especially then,’ she said. ‘Bad enough to be a lettuce. How awful to think you are a lettuce too.” ― Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man’s Fear
