    How are "Goddesses" used in literature?

    Top 10 goddesses in fiction.

    If you are interested in the mash-up between pop culture and pagan stuff, you might find this book interesting.

    In our book You Goddess! we look at supernatural women’s stories from around the world to see how the stereotypes both hamper women and provide us with inspiration. Along the way we came across brilliantly varied examples of how goddesses have been approached in fiction, sometimes revelling in the divine spotlight and sometimes in more background roles.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    I may hunt that down just to see which Goddesses they pick.

    EDIT: also need to change themes since I didn't see that something was a link.

    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis
