Glen Cook Quote: “Wars are being fought every day, even where armies are not on the march. And wars within wars. And wars behind wars.”
Glen Cook Quote: “I have been told I always look at the dark underbelly of tomorrow. Possibly. You’re less likely to be disappointed that way.”
Glen Cook Quote: “Something he had heard some wise man say. About the three stages of empire, the three generations. First came the conquerers, unstoppable in war. Then came the administrators, who bound it all together into one apparently unshakable, immortal edifice. Then came the wasters, who knew no responsibility and squandered the capital of their inheritance upon whims and vices. And fell to other conquerers.”
Glen Cook Quote: “I am a haunted man. I am haunted by the Limper’s screams. I am haunted by the Lady’s laughter. I am haunted by my suspicion that we are furthering the cause of something that deserves to be scrubbed from the face of the earth. I am haunted by the conviction that those bent upon the Lady’s eradication are little better than she. I am haunted by the clear knowledge that, in the end, evil always triumphs.”
Glen Cook Quote: “I believe in our side and theirs, with the good and evil decided after the fact, by those who survive.”
Glen Cook Quote: “Over coming days, when I sneaked down to the Buskin, he revealed everything recorded where he appears as the focal character. I do not think I have met many men who disgusted me more. Nastier.”
Glen Cook Quote: “Little girls are twice as precious and innocent as little boys. I do not know a culture that does not make them that way.”
Glen Cook Quote: “We gathered our things and began taking leave of camp followers who had trickled out from the city. Our animals and equipment would be their reward for faith and friendship. I spent a sad, gentle hour with a woman to whom I meant more than I suspected. We shed no tears and told one another no lies. I left her with memories and most of my pathetic fortune. She left me with a lump in my throat and a sense of loss not wholly fathomable.”
Glen Cook Quote: “I guess each of us, at some time, finds one person with whom we are compelled toward absolute honesty, one person whose good opinion of us becomes a substitute for the broader opinion of the world.”
Glen Cook Quote: “Only a conquerer bothers to honor a fallen foe.”
Glen Cook Quote: “My arguments were beginning to sound a little strained to me, too. I was in the position of a priest trying to sell religion.”
Glen Cook Quote: “Ah, the smell of mystery and dark doings, of skulduggery and revenge. The meat of a good tale.”
Glen Cook Quote: “What did we do today to frighten the world?”
Glen Cook Quote: “I guess each of us, at some time, finds one person with whom we are compelled towards absolute honesty, one person whose good opinion of us becomes a substitute for the broader opinion of the world. And that opinion becomes more important than all our sneaky, sleazy schemes of greed, lust, self-aggrandizement, whatever we are up to while lying the world into believing we are just plain nice folks.”
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.”
Glen Cook Quote: “Singed,” he said, assuming that air of phony dignity cats adopt after some particularly inept performance. Something like, “That’s what I meant to do all along.”
Glen Cook Quote: “But maybe there is a force for greater good, created by our unconscious minds conjoined, that becomes an independent power greater than the sum of its parts.”
Glen Cook Quote: “The Hanged Man stopped gesturing and struck a pose: man listening.”
Glen Cook Quote: “In religion, precise truth has almost no currency. True believers will kill and destroy to defend their inaccurate beliefs.”
Glen Cook Quote: “Raven is an asset in any game including One-Eye. One-Eye cheats. But never when Raven is playing.”
Glen Cook Quote: “The Dead Man once told me that monsters aren’t born, they’re made. That they are memorials which take years of cruelty to sculpt. And that while we should weep for the tortured child who served as raw material, we should permit no sentiment to impede us while we rid the world of the terror strewn by the finished work. It took me a while to figure out what he meant but I do understand him now.”
Glen Cook Quote: “He’d described himself as looking like a child molester waiting for a chance to strike. He wasn’t comfortable with his appearance.”
Glen Cook Quote: “Lady muttered some very unladylike sniggen snaggen riddly rodden racklesnatzes under her breath, then.”
Glen Cook Quote: “There was no peace inside the bounds spanned by God’s Peace. Because men did not just demand submission to the Will of God, they demanded submission to themselves. Nor could they agree what the Will of God might be.”
Glen Cook Quote: “When I reflect on my companions’ inner natures I usually wish I controlled one small talent. I wish I could look inside them and unmask the darks and brights that move them. Then I take a quick look into the jungle of my own soul and thank heaven that I cannot. Any man who barely sustains an armistice with himself has no business poking around in an alien soul.”
Glen Cook Quote: “Limper flopped violently. The gag flew out of his mouth. His ankle bonds parted. He gained his feet, tried to run, tried to mouth some spell that would protect him. He had gone thirty feet when a thousand fiery snakes streaked out of the night and swarmed him. They covered his body. They slithered into his mouth and nose, into his eyes and ears. They went in the easy way and came gnawing out through his back and chest and belly. And he screamed. And screamed. And screamed.”
Glen Cook Quote: “The age is sorrowfully short of characters of the magnificently villainous vitality of those the Dominator took in olden times: Soulcatcher, the Hanged Man, Nightcrawler, Shapeshifter, the Limper, and such. Those were nastymen of the grand scope, nearly as wild and hairy in their wickedness as the Lady and Dominator themselves.”
Glen Cook Quote: “If brains were glazier’s putty, he couldn’t weatherproof a windowless room.”

Glen Cook Quote: “Part of winning is a downdeep certainty that, no matter how bad things look, a road to victory will open.”
Glen Cook Quote: “I am not religious. I cannot conceive of gods who would give a damn about humanity’s frothy carryings-on. I mean, logically, beings of that order just wouldn’t.”
Glen Cook Quote: “None of us are going to get out of this alive so we might as well grab a laugh while we can.”
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: “I’m going to adopt you. You’d make a wonderful daughter. Hey, evil-minded future daughter number two. You heard Arkana. What do you think?” Grudgingly, Shukrat admitted, “I think she’s right.” “Excellent! Let’s go ask your wicked future mother’s opinion.” We.”
Glen Cook Quote: “I am a haunted man. I am haunted by the Limper’s screams. I am haunted by the Lady’s laughter.”

Glen Cook Quote: “I snuck a glance at her. She wore a teasing little smile. I shifted my attention to the fighting. What she did to me, just sitting there, amidst the fury of the end of the world, was more frightening than the prospect of a death in battle. I am too old to boil like a horny fifteen-year-old.”
Glen Cook Quote: “Its front sags against its neighbor to the right, clinging for support like one of its own drunken patrons.”
Glen Cook Quote: “A man lay before me. He had sunk as low as any I had ever known. Then he had fought his way back and back and had become worthy. A man far better than I, for he had located his moral pole star and set his course by it though it had cost his life.”
Glen Cook Quote: “A field of scarlet with nine hanged men in black and six yellow daggers in the upper left and lower right quadrants, respectively, while the upper right quandrant featured a shattered skull and the lower left boasted a bird astride a severed head. It might have been a raven. Or an eagle.”
Glen Cook Quote: “Order was what regular people wanted. Order and security were necessary before prosperity could take hold. The political crap, the who is going to be in charge, did not matter to most folks.”
Glen Cook Quote: “An army without faith in itself is beaten more surely than an army defeated in battle.”
Glen Cook Quote: “It was a night for screamers. A broiling, sticky night of the sort that abrades that last thin barrier between the civilized man and the monster crouched in his soul.”
