Best Quotes by Brandon Mull (Top 10)

  1. Smart people learn from their mistakes. But the real sharp ones learn from the mistakes of others.
  2. An unread book does nobody any good. Stories happen in the mind of a reader, not among symbols printed on a page.
  3. Choices determine character.
  4. When jumping is the sole option, you jump, and try to make it work.
  5. We all posses different gifts and abilities. How we use those gifts determines who we are.
  6. The curse of mortality. You spend the first portion of your life learning, growing stronger, more capable. And then, through no fault of your own, your body begins to fail. You regress. Strong limbs become feeble, keen senses grow dull, hardy constitutions deteriorate. Beauty withers. Organs quit. You remember yourself in your prime, and wonder where that person went. As your wisdom and experience are peaking, your traitorous body becomes a prison.
  7. Running toward danger is foolhardy. ... But so is closing your eyes to it. Many perils become less dangerous once you understand their potential hazards.
  8. Luck has a way of evaporating when you lean on it.
  9. ....there is a difference between hearing and listening. You can't always help what you hear. But you can control what holds your interest, what you choose to dwell on.
  10. Making mistakes is part of learning to choose well. No way around it. Choices are thrust upon us, and we don't always get things right. Even postponing or avoiding a decision can become a choice that carries heavy consequences. Mistakes can be painful-sometimes they cause irrevocable harm-but welcome to Earth. Poor choices are part of growing up, and part of life. You will make bad choices, and you will be affected by the poor choices of others. We must rise above such things.
