“When people look most vicious, what you are seeing is not their animal side. It is the savagery that only humans can muster.”
“Sometimes it seems unfair that events so old can reach forward through the years, sinking claws into one's life and twisting all that follows it. Yet perhaps that is the ultimate justice: we are the sum of all we have done added to the sum of all that has been done to us. There is no escaping that, not for any of us.”
“Home is people. Not a place. If you go back there after the people are gone, then all you can see is what is not there any more.”
Ours was a ragged and uneven parting. Each of us had intended to see the other again.
«Home is people. Not a place. If you go back there after the people are gone, then all you can see is what is not there any more.»Puedo decir con total seguridad que este libro es el mejor de Robin Hobb que he leído. Pocas veces una novela supera mis expectativas cuando sé que esta va a ser excelente, sin embargo, desafiando las probabilidades, Fool's fate me demostró que siempre se puede dar un poco más.
“Ah, Beloved. Of all the things I must bid farewell to, you are the most difficult to lose.
Forgive me that I have avoided you. Better, perhaps, that we make a space between us and become accustomed to it before fate forces that upon us.”
