Look around you more often: see the people as they touch and show their love. But don’t watch coldly, like an observer. Don’t hover outside life – take part in it. There are people out there waiting to love you. It is not something you should turn down lightly.

Rayvan, to Decado, The King Beyond The Gate

What can I do, when I am small and weak? Why should I not steal a little, everyone else does? Why should I try to be pure, when it leaves me poor and disregarded? How can I change the world? Yet all ideas, for good or evil, start in the heart of a single man or woman. From there they spread, one to one, two to two, a hundred to a hundred.’

Gwydion, to Làmfhada, Knights of Dark Renown


There were once three men, proud and strong, the best mountain climbers in the land. In every city tavern people would gather and wonder which man was greatest. Finally they agreed to meet to decide the issue once and for all. There was a peak of sheer granite, three thousand feet high, which men called Rasboreth. No one had ever conquered Rasboreth, though many had tried, and many had died or been crippled in the attempt. Just as they were about to begin the climb, an angel appeared and told them all that their deaths were but one day distant. The first man said, “I shall go home and fill my belly with wine until the time of my death.” The second man said, “I shall find a woman with a soft body and welcoming eyes, and I shall lie with her until the time of my death.” Both turned to the third man. “And what of you?” they asked him.

“Me? Why I shall climb the mountain.”

Aubertain, to Owen Odell, Morningstar
