Quotes Marionette22 Liked

Joe Abercrombie
“The smell of it. The feel of it." He rubbed one hand up and down the stained sheath of his sword, making a faint swishing sound. "War is honest. There's no lying to it. You don't have to say sorry here. Don't have to hide. You cannot. If you die? So what? You die among friends. Among worthy foes. You die looking the Great Leveller in the eye. If you live? Well, lad that's living, isn't it? A man isn't truly alive until he's facing death." Whirrun stamped his foot into the sod. "I love war!”
Joe Abercrombie, The Heroes

“Get what you can with words, because words are free, but the words of an armed man ring that much sweeter.”
Joe Abercrombie, The Heroes
