“Wagner’s Ring Cycle has kept one version of one of the great Norse stories alive in the minds of music lovers. Readers of modern fantasy will find many echoes of the Norse tales as well. Neil Gaiman, Douglas Adams and others have explicitly taken some of the Norse gods and put them into a modern setting with strange, sad and humorous results. Echoes of Norse tales and creatures abound in the speculative fiction of Ursula Le Guin, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Tad Williams and others. Something in these old and puzzling stories still has the power to move and unsettle us, and to inspire new acts of creation.”

“Worry,” he whispered to himself, “is a wasted effort about something that might not happen. Better to enjoy the moments we have and to make the best of them.”

“There is an old wisdom that those who put themselves first shall become last. The subtext of this wisdom tells us that self-concern is the root of all evil. Self-concern is behind the love of money and all the other deadly sins. Certainly, Cronus’s lust for power drove him to murder his own children, even worse than what his father, Uranus had done.”
