“Let us return to 'no'. It has the charm of brevity.”
Sharon Lee, Local Custom

“The thing to recall about Dragons is that it takes a special person to deal with them at all. If you lie to them they will steal from you. If you attack them without cause they will dismember you. If you run from them they will laugh at you.

It is thus best to deal calmly, openly and fairly with Dragons: Give them all they buy and no more or less, and they will do the same by you. Stand at their back and they will stand at yours. Always remember that a Dragon is first a Dragon and only then a friend, a partner, a lover.

Never assume that you have discovered a Dragon's weak point until it is dead and forgotten, for joy is fleeting and a Dragon's revenge is forever.”
Sharon Lee

“Every time you get the world by the tail, she thought, you gotta remember there's teeth on the other end.”
Sharon Lee, Agent of Change
