„Den, kdy se něčemu naučíš, není už promarněn.“

„Situace se rapidně blíží bodu, kdy je průměrného Američana snazší přeskočit než obejít.“


„Růže rozkvétá a pak opadá, ale její vůně trvají v mysli navěky.“ Strážci západu

„Já věděl, že je to příliš krásné, než aby to vydrželo dlouho.“ Kouzelníkův gambit

„Vezmi deset chlapů a sud piva, dobře zamíchej a budou držet pohromadě do konce života.“

„What was that?" Belgarath asked, coming back around the corner.
"Brill," Silk replied blandly, pulling his Murgo robe back on.
"Again?" Belgarath demanded with exasperation. "What was he doing this time?"
"Trying to fly, last time I saw him." Silk smirked.
The old man looked puzzled.
"He wasn't doing it very well," Silk added.
Belgarath shrugged. "Maybe it'll come to him in time."
"He doesn't really have all that much time." Silk glanced out over the edge.
"From far below - terribly far below - there came a faint, muffled crash; then, after several seconds, another. "Does bouncing count?" Silk asked.
Belgarath made a wry face. "Not really."
"Then I'd say he didn't learn in time." Silk said blithely.“
Magician's Gambit

„God save us from religion.“

„I've looked at the world for quite a few years now and I've found that if I don't laugh, I'll probably end up crying."
- Prince Kheldar of Drasnia“
Demon Lord of Karanda


„The old man was peering intently at the shelves. 'I'll have to admit that he's a very competent scholar.'
Isn't he just a librarian?' Garion asked, 'somebody who looks after books?'
That's where all the rest of scholarship starts, Garion. All the books in the world won't help you if they're just piled up in a heap.“
King of the Murgos

„... only in the surrender of the light could the darkness prevail.“ King of the Murgos

„My Lord, I find thy face apelike and thy form misshapen. Thy beard, moreover, is an offense against decency, resembling more closely the scabrous fir which doth decorate the hinder portion of a mongrel dog than a proper adornement for a human face. Is it possible that thy mother, seized by some wild lechery, did dally at some time past with a randy goat? -Mandorallen“

„When love is involved no sacrifice is too great.“


„We're living in momentous times, Garion. The events of a thousand years and more have all focused on these very days. The world, I'm told, is like that. Centuries pass when nothing happens, and then in a few short years events of such tremendous importance take place that the world is never the same again."
I think that if I had my choice, I'd prefer one of those quiet centuries," Garion said glumly.
Oh, no," Silk said, his lips drawing back in a ferretlike grin. "Now's the time to be alive - to see it all happen, to be a part of it. That makes the blood race, and each breath is an adventure.“
Pawn of Prophecy

„Consistency is the defense of a small mind“ The Seeress of Kell

„I thought you said you were the one in charge!" Ce'Nedra exclaimed.

I lied." Silk said. "It's a vice I have.“
Queen of Sorcery

„Nothing that ever happens is so unimportant that it doesn't change things.“ Polgara the Sorceress
