“Studerer man lenge nok de bibelske lignelser, lukkes sjelen gradvis inne i vanviddets labyrint.”
Gert Nygårdshaug, Dødens codex

“«Onkel meg her og onkel meg der,» freste Skarphedin. «Stapp buken full av kjørvel og finraspet einer sammen med en god klatt Dijon-sennep, pakk den i folie og legg den i glørne. Trenger jeg fortelle deg dette, gutt! Jeg er sulten som en ulv!»”
Gert Nygårdshaug, Den balsamerte ulven

“Han lå på sengen og stirret opp i bjelkene. Han var nydusjet og plastret, og følte seg ikke verre enn Olav den Hellige etter slaget på Stiklestad. Og den karen hadde jo vokset betydelig etter sine strabaser.”
Gert Nygårdshaug, Dødens codex
