“If you remember one thing, even above remembering me, remember that there is not a monster dreamt that hasn't walked withing the soul of man.”
C. Robert Cargill, Dreams and Shadows

“Everyone had a lesson waiting, and they learned it with blood. Sometimes that's how it goes. People learn from failure and tragedy, not from success.”
C. Robert Cargill

“You see, there was this man, and he was a good man; he worked hard and did everything to the best of his ability. All he desired was for the most beautiful woman in the kingdom to be his wife. Now this wasn't all bad because she actually loved him too--very much so--but this vizier, he wanted her as well and not for so noble a cause as love."

"What did he want her for?"

Yashar paused for a moment. "So that people could look at him and say, 'He must be a great man to have such a beautiful wife.'"

"Oh. I thought he wanted her for sex," said Colby, disappointed.”
C. Robert Cargill, Dreams and Shadows
