Robert Louis Stevenson
“You may imagine how I felt when I heard this abominable old rogue addressing another in the very same words of flattery as he had used to me. I think, if I had been able, that I would have killed him through the barrel.”
Robert Louis Stevenson, Treasure Island

Robert Louis Stevenson
“His stories were what frightened people worst of all. Dreadful stories they were--about hanging, and walking the plank, and storms at sea, and the Dry Tortugas, and wild deeds and places on the Spanish Main. By his own account he must have lived his life among some of the wickedest men that God ever allowed upon the sea, and the language in which he told these stories shocked our plain country people almost as much as the crimes that he described. My father was always saying the inn would be ruined, for people would soon cease coming there to be tyrannized over and put down, and sent shivering to their beds; but I really believe his presence did us good. People were frightened at the time, but on looking back they rather liked it; it was a fine excitement in a quiet country life, and there was even a party of the younger men who pretended to admire him, calling him a "true sea-dog" and a "real old salt" and such like names, and saying there was the sort of man that made England terrible at sea.”
Robert Louis Stevenson, Treasure Island

Stephen Crane
“Once upon a time there was a beautiful Indian maiden, of course.”
Stephen Crane, The Third Violet

Robert Louis Stevenson
“That was Flint's treasure that we had come so far to seek, and that had cost already the lives of seventeen men from the Hispaniola. How many it had cost in the ammassing, what blood and sorrow, what good ships scuttled on the deep, what brave men walking the plank blindfold, what shot of cannon, what shame and lies and cruelty, perhaps no man alive could tell.”
Robert Louis Stevenson, Treasure Island

Mark Bowden
“In the world's most dangerous country, the job of going after Pablo was the most dangerous position of all.”
Mark Bowden, Killing Pablo: The Hunt for the World's Greatest Outlaw
