“Much better to force people to choose at once, friend or foe, and then he knew where they stood.”
Kate Heartfield, Armed in Her Fashion

“She did envy Gertrude after all—not her grief, which must be greater than Beatrix could even imagine, but her boisterous presence in the world. Gertrude took up space; Beatrix was always watching from the corners.”
Kate Heartfield, Armed in Her Fashion

“If I have no plan, then nothing can go wrong,” said Janos. “I will not waste any time rewriting my plans as I go. I do not want any planners and falterers, Claude, mark me, now, for you are young and desperate, and I want you to stay that way. I want only desperate men beside me!”
Kate Heartfield, Armed in Her Fashion

“Of course he has a knife, he always has a knife, we all have knives! It's 1183 and we're barbarians!”
