Glen Cook Quote: “Write. Don’t talk about writing. Don’t tell me about your wonderful story ideas. Don’t give me a bunch of “somedays.” Plant your ass and scribble, type, keyboard. If you have any talent at all, it will leak out despite your failure to pay attention in English.”

Glen Cook Quote: “An old, tired man. That is what I am. What became of the old fire, drive, ambition? There were dreams once upon a time, dreams now all but forgotten. On sad days I dust them off and fondle them nostalgically, with a patronising wonder at the naivete of the youth who dreamed them.”
Glen Cook Quote: “If you always do the easier thing, then you cannot possibly remain steadfast when it becomes necessary to take a difficult stand. You must do what you know to be right.

Glen Cook Quote: “We all have our pasts. I suspect we keep them nebulous not because we are hiding from our yesterdays but because we think we will cut more romantic figures if we roll our eyes and dispense delicate hints about beautiful women forever beyond our reaches. Those men whose stories I have uprooted are running from the law, not a tragic love affair.”
Glen Cook Quote: “I guess I suffer from an impoverishment of the sociopathic spirit necessary to go big time.”
Glen Cook Quote: “The only characters I’ve made to resemble real people have been grotesques.”
Glen Cook Quote: “Closer at hand, the wheeling gulls were as surly and lackadaisical as the day promised to make most men.”
Glen Cook Quote: “The only exercise I get is jumping to conclusions.”
Glen Cook Quote: “We abjure labels. We fight for money and an indefinable pride. The politics, the ethics, the moralities, are irrelevant.”

Glen Cook Quote: “This is a favorite game, matching wits with a Raker. He is blind to the dead, to the burning villages, to the starving children. As is the Rebel. Two blind armies, able to see nothing but one another.”
Glen Cook Quote: “My guess is, six of one, half a dozen of the other. Crows.”
Glen Cook Quote: “The Lady made a few gestures around Bomanz – who looked pretty moth-eaten – and said a few words in a language I did not understand. Why do sorcerers always use languages nobody understands? Even Goblin and One-Eye do it. Each has confided that he cannot follow the tongue the other uses. Maybe they make it up?”
Glen Cook Quote: “These boys both fell out of the ugly tree at a young age, hitting every damned branch on the way down. Then their mommas whupped them with an ugly stick and fed them ugly soup every day of their lives. They were Uh-glee, with a couple of capital double-ugs.”

They got to be the ones who believe they’ve turned into dregs and something has got to be changed.”

Glen Cook Quote: “An old, old formula came to mind, from back when I was very young indeed. “I am a soldier.” I said it first in the language I had spoken then, then repeated myself in Sleepy’s own Dejagoran dialect. “I’ve been distracted before. I’m still alive.”
