„Nemusíš sníst celé hovno, abys poznala, že to není piškotový dort.“ Hegemonův stín

„“Žádný člověk není bezcenný, když pochopíte jeho touhy. Žádný život není nic. Ani těch nejhorších mužů a žen. Když pochopíte jejich srdce, zjistíte, že udělali něco šlechetného, co je aspoň trochu vykupuje z jejich hříchů.”“ Z knihy: Mluvčí za mrtvé


„Nemůžeš vyloučit nemožné, protože nikdy nevíš, které ze tvých předpokladů o tom, co je možné, se v reálném vesmíru mohou ukázat jako falešné.“ Enderův stín

„Budoucnost je sto tisíc nitek, zatímco minulost je tkanina, kterou nelze utkat znovu.“ Z knihy: Xenocida

„Perhaps it's impossible to wear an identity without becoming what you pretend to be.“

„Perhaps it's impossible to wear an identity without becoming what you pretend to be.“ Ender's Game

„In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him. I think it’s impossible to really understand somebody, what they want, what they believe, and not love them the way they love themselves. And then, in that very moment when I love them.... I destroy them.“ Ender's Game

„If you try and lose then it isn't your fault. But if you don't try and we lose, then it's all your fault.“ Ender's Game


„Ethan Wyeth: I hope you're thirsty."
Gideon Wyeth:"Why?"
Ethan: "Cause your dumb and ugly, but I can do something about thirsty.“

- Ender“
Ender's Game

„This is how humans are: We question all our beliefs, except for the ones that we really believe in, and those we never think to question.“ Speaker for the Dead

„It's called civilization. Women invented it, and every time you men blow it all to bits, we just invent it again.“ The Folk of the Fringe


„I think that most of us, anyway, read these stories that we know are not "true" because we're hungry for another kind of truth: the mythic truth about human nature in general, the particular truth about those life-communities that define our own identity, and the most specific truth of all: our own self-story. Fiction, because it is not about someone who lived in the real world, always has the possibility of being about oneself. --From the Introduction“ Ender's Game

„No human being, when you understand his desires, is worthless. No one's life is nothing. Even the most evil of men and women, if you understand their hearts, had some generous act that redeems them, at least a little, from their sins.“ Speaker for the Dead

„Remember, the enemy's gate is down.“ Ender's Game

„I think it's impossible to really understand somebody, what they want, what they believe, and not love them the way they love themselves.“ Ender's Game
