Can we accept their languages, their customs, their garments, and their foods into our own lives? If we can, then we form bonds, bonds that make wars less likely. If we cannot, if we believe that we must do things as we have always done them, then we must either fight to remain as we are, or die”

“Remember with your heart. Go back, go back and go back. The skies of this world were always meant to have dragons. When they are not here, humans miss them. Some never think of them, of course.

Something that was supposed to be there faded and vanished. Something that we must bring back, you and I.”
Robin Hobb, Golden Fool

“I truly wanted to live a life in which I could make my own choices, independent of the 'duties' of my birth and position. It was only when fate granted that to me that I realized the cost of it. I could set aside my responsibilities to others and live my life as I please only when I also severed my ties to them. I could not have it both ways.”
Robin Hobb, Golden Fool
“Silence asks the questions that are too awkward to phrase. It even asks the questions one does not know to ask.”

Perhaps Tom Badgerlock and Lord Golden were all that was left to us.”
Robin Hobb, Golden Fool
“We didn't have to share a mind to share a heart.”
Robin Hobb, Golden Fool

Robin Hobb, Golden Fool
