„Words have to find a man's mind before they can touch his heart, and some men's minds are woefully small targets.“

—  Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind
Context: Remember this son, if you forget everything else. A poet is a musician who can’t sing. Words have to find a man’s mind before they can touch his heart. And, some men’s minds are woeful small targets. Music touches their hearts directly, no matter how small or stubborn the mind of the man who listens. Chapter 14, “The Name of the Wind” (p. 113)
