Citáty Nick Drake (poet)

„Do not indulge yourself in a self-pitying, self-gratifying revenge.“

—  Nick Drake (poet)

ibid
The Rahotep series, Book 3: Egypt: The Book of Chaos (2011)
Kontext: Death makes us strangers to ourselves... Do not indulge yourself in a self-pitying, self-gratifying revenge. More than likely you would simply end up dead as well.

„Rhetoric is a dangerous art. It is the manipulation of the difference, one might say the distance, between truth and image […] And in our times, that distance has become the means by which power is exercised“

—  Nick Drake (poet)

ibid
The Rahotep series, Book 2: Tutankhamun
Kontext: Rhetoric is a dangerous art. It is the manipulation of the difference, one might say the distance, between truth and image [... ] And in our times, that distance has become the means by which power is exercised [... ] Rhetoric has been a force for persuasion since man began to speak, and to convince his enemy that he was indeed his friend.

„Conflict defines nations. Enemies justify armies. Wars glorify generals.“

—  Nick Drake (poet)

Ch 7
The Rahotep series, Book 3: Egypt: The Book of Chaos (2011)
Kontext: Conflict defines nations. Enemies justify armies. Wars glorify generals. Without his great enemy to give him purpose and meaning, he will be significantly diminished. He will have to come to terms with us.

„The couch was for sleep at the end of exhausting days. I confided in her less often. Perhaps that is the fate of all marriages.“

—  Nick Drake (poet)

Ch 8
The Rahotep series, Book 3: Egypt: The Book of Chaos (2011)
Kontext: A little distance had opened between us, almost unnoticed, rarely acknowledged. We made love infrequently. The couch was for sleep at the end of exhausting days. I confided in her less often. Perhaps that is the fate of all marriages.

„But to be a poet is to accept the responsibility of speaking the truth!“

—  Nick Drake (poet)

Zdroj: The Rahotep series, Book 3: Egypt: The Book of Chaos (2011), Ch. 2
Kontext: I see I have shocked you all a little. But to be a poet is to accept the responsibility of speaking the truth! No matter what the cost to my personal safety [... ] in matters of men and this world. I’m a poet, not a complete fool…

„I know these writers, they say “borrow” when they mean “steal.”“

—  Nick Drake (poet)

ibid
The Rahotep series, Book 2: Tutankhamun
Kontext: Be careful, Rahotep, I know these writers, they say “borrow” when they mean “steal.” You will soon read your words coming back to you on some privately circulated scroll of new verse.

„My dear friend, the world is really one vast marketplace. No one cares where a man is from as long as he has gold in his pocket, or something you want.“

—  Nick Drake (poet)

Ch 17
The Rahotep series, Book 3: Egypt: The Book of Chaos (2011)
Kontext: My dear friend, the world is really one vast marketplace. No one cares where a man is from as long as he has gold in his pocket, or something you want. And the remarkable thing is this: the wars have only encouraged demand, trade has actually boomed in these difficult years. The ships are full, everyone is happy. War and politics are irrelevant, unless the great flow of trade is disturbed.
