„V politice nelze nic odložit na jindy - co se dnes jeví jako bezvýznamná maličkost, zítra může přerůst v tragédii.“

„Kto má iba jednu jedinú skromnú usadlosť, plne ju využije. Kto vlastní rozsiahle majetky, teší sa z nich iba v mysli.“


„Every man believes to some extent that the world began when he was born and, at the moment of leaving it, suffers at having to let the Universe remain unfinished.“ El rey de hierro

„It must be admitted that such things were common coin of the period. Kingdoms were often handed over to adolescents, whose absolute power fasinated them as might a game. Hardly grown out of the age in which it is fun to tear the wings from flies, they might now amuse themselves by tearing the heads from men. Too young to fear or even imagine death, they would not hesitate to distribute it around them.“ El rey de hierro

„Every unjust act, even committed for the sake of a just cause, carries its curse with it.“

„Mediocrities can tolerate being surrounded only by flatterers who conceal their mediocrity.“ The Strangled Queen

„I have always regarded historical fiction and fantasy as sisters under the skin, two genres separated at birth.“ The Iron King

„Il y a dans l'Histoire une singulière lignée, toujours renouvelée, de fanatiques de l'ordre. Voués à une idole abstraite et absolue, pour eux les vie humaines ne sont d'aucune valeur si elles attentent au dogme des institutions; et l'on dirait qu'ils ont oublié que la collectivité qu'ils servent est composée d'hommes. (partie 2, chapitre 9)“ Les Rois Maudits


„It is thus that imagination can in the end determine destiny, and it but needs our future actions to be given shape in speech so that we are obliged to give them the reality of accomplishment.“ La reina estrangulada

„First love is the only pure and happy one. If it goes wrong, nothing can replace it. Later loves can never attain to the same limpid perfection; though they may be as solid, as marble, they are streaked with veins of another colour, the dried blood of the past.“ La flor de lis y el león

„The people are always prepared to shout on the side of power and to make a noise when it costs them nothing“

„Accursed! Accursed! You shall be accursed to the thirteenth generation!“ El rey de hierro


„When one has governed men for a long time, when one has thought that one has acted for the best, when one knows the pains the task has entailed, and then suddenly sees that one has never been either loved or understood, but merely submitted to, then one is overwhelmed with bitterness, and wonders whether one could not have found some better way of spending one’s life.“ The Strangled Queen

„The Queen watched the drops of sweat pearling her husband's brow. And nothing disgusts a woman more than the sweat of the man she has ceased to love.“ La loba de Francia

„There is a singular strand running through history, always renewing itself, that of fanatics for the general good and for the written law. Logical to the point of inhumanity, pitiless towards others as towards themselves, these servants of abstract gods and of absolute law accept the role of executioners, because they wish to be the last executioner. They deceive themselves because, once dead, the world no longer obeys them.“ The Accursed Kings Series Books 1-3: The Iron King, The Strangled Queen, The Poisoned Crown

„¿Tuvisteis buena travesía?
—Execrable, señora, horrorosa —respondió Roberto—. Una tempestad como para echar tripas y alma. Creí llegada mi última hora, hasta el extremo de que decidí confesar mis pecados a Dios. Por fortuna, eran tantos, que al tiempo de decir la mitad ya llegábamos a destino. Guardo suficientes para el regreso.“
