“A lioness cares nothing for the shriek of jackals, old woman. Now hear this, and hear it well—if she had raised me to hate, I would kill you and all your kin, and no man or god could stop me.”
“And how could a man forgive, he wondered, if the memory of his wounds were as fresh as the day they spawned?
He thought perhaps this was his true curse—to remember. Other people never truly forgave, he thought—they only ever forgot the details, the feelings, the failures. But this was not a path open to him.”
“Success is not your obligation, boy. Success is often luck and to think otherwise is arrogance. Your burden is only to try. Face your path with courage, and let come what may.”
"One day he would grieve, and accept the price for all the lives snuffed for the great cause of the future, and suffer whatever came. But not today."
“I am not a man, Prince of Paradise. I am a thousand years of children buried nameless in rotten earth. I am the rage of their helpless mothers, weeping beneath an empty sky. I am the bitter fruit of frozen tears.”
“A man fails in only two ways. He gives up, or he dies."
"Then would come the true storm—a storm building for two thousand years, made of the sons and daughters of once bitter enemies, an alliance between the lost children of paradise—a storm of ash and sand."
You’re all slaves. But I will free you. I will drag you from this place kicking and screaming if I must.
