“Kallor shrugged. '[...] I have walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I have commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I have spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

The Imass leaned his head to one side and regarded her.
'Because Adjunct, it is futile.”
Steven Erikson, Gardens of the Moon
