Favourite quotes from An ember In The Ashes and A torch against the night 

So these two books were full of amazing quotes and all of them were mind blowing and I started believing so much in these quotes, ahh if you haven’t read these two books you really really should guys, they’re one of the best books I’ve ever read and here are some of my favourite quotes from these two beautiful books 📚 



“Life is made of so many moments that mean nothing. Then one day, a single moment comes along to define every second that comes after. Such moments are tests of courage, of strength.”

“You are an ember in the ashes, Elias Veturius. You will spark and burn, ravage and destroy. You cannot change it. You cannot stop it.”

“The field of battle is my temple. The swordpoint is my priest. The dance of death is my prayer. The killing blow is my release.” 

“Nan always said that as long as there is life, there is hope.” 

“In the night, your loneliness crushes you, as if the sky itself has swooped down to smother you in its cold arms.” 


“So long as you fight the darkness, you stand in the light.” 

“But you, Helene Aquilla, are no swift-burning spark. You are a torch against the night – if you dare to let yourself burn.” 

“Your emotions make you human. Even the unpleasant ones have a purpose. Don’t lock them away. If you ignore them, they just get louder and angrier.” 

“Failure doesn’t define you. It’s what you do after you fail that determines whether you are a leader or a waste of perfectly good air.” 

“Perhaps I have become so accustomed to the burden of secrets that I do not notice their weight until I am free of it.” 

“Elias and Laia are each other’s countermelodies. I am just a dissonant note.”

All these quotes are so beautiful, go ahead read these two books guys, they’re amazing!
