The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

"Words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts. There are seven words that will make a person love you. There are ten words that will break a strong man's will. But a word is nothing but a painting of a fire. A name is the fire itself." -Elodin, in conversation to Kvothe. (Rothfuss 2008:617)

Superb.
