“The stars were better company anyway. They were very beautiful, and they almost never snored.”
David Eddings, Crystal Gorge
“Why do some trees stay green while others change their color?”

“Certain trees need to show off, dear. I’m sure that my big brother could explain why it happens. Dahlaine loves to explain things, and he can be very tedious about it. I prefer simpler answers. The trees are sad because summer’s almost over.”
David Eddings, Crystal Gorge
“Do you ever plan to grow up, Veltan?” he asked.

“Not if I can avoid it, no.”

“It’s different," Sorgan’s younger cousin Torl declared, gesturing at the glorious sunset late that afternoon. "It’s pretty enough, I suppose, but it’s not too much like the sunsets out at sea. Mountains seem to do peculiar things to the sky."

"It’s the clouds, Captain Torl," Keselo explained. "Most of the time, I’d imagine, the clouds out over the sea sort of plod along from here to there. When they come to mountains, though, they have to climb up one side and then slide down the other. That sort of scrambles them, so they’re thicker in some places and thinner in others. That’s why we see so many different shades of red in a mountain sunset.”
David Eddings, Crystal Gorge

David Eddings, Crystal Gorge
“I thought the trees down in Lady Zelana’s country were about as big as a tree could get,” he said, “but the ones around here are so tall that they probably tickle the moon’s tummy when she goes by.”

David Eddings, Crystal Gorge
“Andar si godeva il silenzio che si stendeva sul mare quando stava per arrivare un nuovo giorno. In quei momenti la superficie gli appariva straordinariamente bella e gli sembrava che il mare trattenesse il respiro, aspettando il sole.”
David Eddings, Crystal Gorge
“La luna si levò sopra la prateria e sembrava succhiare via tutti i colori dal paesaggio circostante; adesso tutto appariva diverso. I cespugli lungo il letto asciutto non erano verdi ma neri e avevano un che di minaccioso.”
David Eddings, Crystal Gorge
“Le guerre sono belle, ma tendono a interferire con faccende più importanti.”
David Eddings, Crystal Gorge
