Quotes from The Name of the Wind

“It’s like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.”

“Lovely as the moon: not flawless, perhaps, but perfect.”

“More books than I could read? Somehow I doubted that.”

“You have to be a bit of a liar to tell a story the right way.”

‘”Are you hurt?”

“Absolutely,” I said. “Especially in my everywhere.”‘

“It was the patient, cut-flower sound of a man who is waiting to die.”


There’s something about the way that Patrick Rothfuss writes that instantly held my attention. It’s poetry at its best; hidden in a funny, creative, adventure story.

I hope you enjoy these quotes as much as I did.

Rothfuss consistently switches between sage words of wisdom and hilarious one-liners. He’s got the whole package deal and that’s what keeps his books so interesting. It’s entertaining and educational in terms of life advice.

If you haven’t read the book yet, let these quotes be a teaser for what’s to come.

To Rothfuss: we are eagerly awaiting the 3rd installment of The Kingkiller Chronicles! Until then, we’ll make due with re-reading The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear.
