“I'm smiling because I know perfectly well what I am and I honestly don't give a damn what you think of me”
adam-troy castro, Emissaries from the Dead

“Fish held the silence for so long that I had to restrain myself from prodding her. That's never a good idea. Sometimes people hesitate because they don't have the courage to come out with whatever needs to be said; other times they desperately want to speak but can't find the words. Jabbing them prematurely tends to shut them up. Outwaiting them gives them the time to say more than they intend.”
Adam-Troy Castro, Emissaries from the Dead

“I don't like you bondsman. But I hate mysteries even more”
Adam-Troy Castro, Emissaries from the Dead
