“We all are weak, in one way or another. It does not matter the species. Some times that weakness is a strength in dusguise. Sometimes it is our utter undoing. Some times it is both. A wise man seeks to find a lesson from it. A fool lets it control and destroy him.
And sometimes the wise man is the fool.”
Christie Golden, Rise of the Horde

“It is as much of a mistake to underestimate yourself as to overestimate yourself.”
Christie Golden, Arthas: Rise of the Lich King

“Remember…you always have a choice to be better. You always have a choice to…to pick the right path.” She smiled sadly. “Even if that choice comes a little late.”
Christie Golden, Dark Disciple: Star Wars
