Orson Scott Card Quote: “Into the the air, into the earth, into the fire, I am with you.”
Orson Scott Card Quote: “Ender understood more than she said. Manipulation of gravity was one thing; deception by the officers was another; but the most important message was this: the adults are the enemy, not the other armies. They do not tell us the truth.”
Orson Scott Card Quote: “Isolation is – the optimum environment for creativity.”

Orson Scott Card Quote: “I’m right here. This is who I really am. I’m not pretending.”
Orson Scott Card Quote: “There’s never enough information... That’s the great tragedy of human knowledge. No matter how much we think we know, we can never predict the future.”
Orson Scott Card Quote: “Regardless of law, marriage has only one definition, and any government that attempts to change it is my mortal enemy. I will act to destroy that government and bring it down.”

Orson Scott Card Quote: “Make friends. Be a leader. Kiss butts if you have to, but if the other guys despise you-you know what I mean?”
Orson Scott Card Quote: “I have hope for you, if only because you’re the only one left to hope for.”
Orson Scott Card Quote: “And anyway most people are idiots. They don’t care about the why. They only care about what threatens them.”
Orson Scott Card Quote: “That is the Earth, he thought. Not a globe thousands of kilometers around, but a forest with a shining lake, a house hidden at the crest of the hill, high in the trees, a grassy slope leading upward from the water, fish leaping and birds strafing to take the bugs that lived at the border between water and sky. Earth was the constant noise of crickets and winds and birds. And the voice of one girl, who spoke to him out of his far-off childhood.”
Orson Scott Card Quote: “An interesting side effect of the battle was that Ender emerged at the top of the soldier efficiency list. Since he hadn’t fired a shot, he had a perfect record on shooting – no misses at all. And since he had never been eliminated or disabled, his percentage there was excellent. No one else came close. It made a lot of boys laugh, and others were angry, but on the prized efficiency list, Ender was now the leader.”

Orson Scott Card Quote: “Oh, Pipo, I’d be glad for you to try. But do believe me, my dear friend, touching her heart is like bathing in ice” I imagine. I imagine it feels like bathing in ice to the person touching her. But how does it feel to her? Cold as she is, it must surely burn like fire.”
Orson Scott Card Quote: “No book, however good, can survive a hostile reading.”
Orson Scott Card Quote: “Be proud, Bonito, pretty boy. You can go home and tell your father, Yes, I beat up Ender Wiggin, who was barely ten years old, and I was thirteen. And I had only six of my friends to help me, and somehow we managed to defeat him, even though he was naked and wet and alone – Ender Wiggin is so dangerous and terrifying it was all we could do not to bring two hundred.”
Orson Scott Card Quote: “I want to be the kind of boy you are, thought Bean. But I don’t want to go through what you’ve been through to get there.”
Orson Scott Card Quote: “We do have a right to defend ourselves as best we can, and the only way we found that works is killing the buggers before they kill us.”
Orson Scott Card Quote: “Then the raft rocked, and she turned to see Ender calmly crushing the life out of the wasp with one finger. “These are a nasty breed,” Ender said. “They sting you without waiting to be insulted first.”
