Steven Erikson
“When robbed, the rich cry out for protection and prosecution. When stealing, they expect the judiciary to look the other way.”
Steven Erikson, Dust of Dreams

Robert A. Caro
“I will not deny that there are men in the district better qualified than I to go to Congress, but, gentlemen, these men are not in the race.”
Robert A. Caro, The Path to Power

Robert A. Caro
“BUT WHAT, really, had the People’s Party—the farmers who called themselves “Alliancemen”—asked for? Only that when men found themselves at the mercy of forces too big for them to fight alone, government—their government—help them fight. What were the demands for railroad and bank regulation, for government loans, for public-works projects, but an expression of a belief that after men have banded together and formed a government, they have a right, when they are being crushed by conditions over which they have no control, to ask that government to extend a helping hand to them—if necessary, to fight for them, to be their champion?

and in the small distance between being taken and being missed, lives
are changed.
"You say you should have died instead of me. But during my time on
earth, people died instead of me, too. It happens every day. When
lightning strikes a minute after you are gone, or an airplane crashes that
you might have been on. When your colleague falls ill and you do not.
We think such things are random. But there is a balance to it all. One
withers, another grows. Birth and death are part of a whole.”
Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven

Steven Erikson
“Take a thousand soldiers. Four hundred will stand in a fight but do nothing. Two hundred will run given the chance. Another hundred will get confused. That leaves three hundred you can count on. Your task in commanding that thousand is all down to knowing where to put that three hundred.”
Steven Erikson, Dust of Dreams
