“Walking out in the middle of a funeral would be, of course, bad form. So attempting to walk out on one's own was beyond the pale.”
Steve Hockensmith, Dawn of the Dreadfuls

“Failure is but the longer road to triumph.”
Steve Hockensmith, Dreadfully Ever After

“A battle cry" Mr. Bennet said "is a warrior's calling card. Only it does not say 'Good afternoon. I have come for tea and crumpets.' It says 'Death has come for you! Flee or be killed where you stand!”
