C.J. Sansom
“Whenever a party tells you national identity matters more than anything else in politics, that nationalism can sort out all the other problems, then watch out, because you’re on a road that can end with fascism.”
C.J. Sansom, Dominion

Eiji Yoshikawa
“The summit is believed to be the object of the climb. But its true object—the joy of living—is not in the peak itself, but in the adversities encountered on the way up. There are valleys, cliffs, streams, precipices, and slides, and as he walks these steep paths, the climber may think he cannot go any farther, or even that dying would be better than going on. But then he resumes fighting the difficulties directly in front of him, and when he is finally able to turn and look back at what he has overcome, he finds he has truly experienced the joy of living while on life's very road.”
Eiji Yoshikawa, Taiko: An Epic Novel of War and Glory in Feudal Japan

Agatha Christie
“Mr. Satterthwaite looked cheered.

Suddenly an idea struck him. His jaw fell.

"My goodness," he cried, "I've only just realized it! That rascal, with his poisoned cocktail! Anyone might have drunk it! It might have been me!"

"There is an even more terrible possibility that you have not considered," said Poirot.


"It might have been me," said Hercule Poirot.”
Agatha Christie, Three Act Tragedy

“We do not fear the flame, though it burns us,
We do not fear the fire, though it consumes us,
And we do not fear its light,
Though it reveals the darkness of our souls,
For therein lies our power.
-- Blood Oath of the Iron Elves”
Chris Evans

Jeane Westin
“The Tudors hated to be wrong, and therefore never were.”
Jeane Westin, His Last Letter: Elizabeth I and the Earl of Leicester
