“We are our dreams, Robert, and they are us.”
Robyn Young, Requiem: The Fall of the Templars

“There is a time for faith, Bishop, and a time for action. It would be a foolish man who stood on a battlefield and faced an army with a Bible in his hands. We are here to do the bidding of our Lord Almighty, but it is through deeds, as well as piety, that we serve Him.”
Robyn Young, Crusade

“Mas ela sabia, lá no fundo ela sabia. Ela tinha sido um recipiente onde o rei tinha despejado a sua angústia e o seu desespero. Estando tão vazia, ela deixara-se encher pelo negrume dele. Para ele, a criança que dava pontapés e que sonhava dentro dela não era mais do que uma semente que ele tinha plantado por engano, uma erva daninha que tinha de ser arrancada”
Robyn Young, Requiem: The Fall of the Templars
