„Radost je v uších, které slyší, ne v ústech, která mluví - svět má jen málo příběhů, které jsou samy o sobě radostné a my musíme mít veselé uši, abychom vzdorovali zlobě

- Pěnosledník Slanomil“
Kletba Pána Zlora

„Are you a storyteller, Thomas Covenant?"
Absently he replied, "I was, once."
"And you gave it up? Ah, that is as sad a tale in three words as any you might have told me. But a life without a tale is like a sea without salt. How do you live?"
... Unconsciously, he clenched his fist over his ring. "I live."
"Another?" Foamfollower returned. "In two words, a story sadder than the first. Say no more -- with one word you will make me weep.“


„I respect my limitations, but I don't use them as an excuse.“

„He who waits for the sword to fall upon his neck will surely lose his head.“

„Any belief that puts itself beyond doubt nurtures its own collapse.“ Reave the Just and Other Tales

„Stone and sea are deep in life
Two unalterable symbols of the world
Permanence at rest
And permanence in motion
Participants in the power that remains“
The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever

„Joy is in the ears that hear.“

„It is wrong to ask for more than you give freely. In this way, we come to resemble what we hate.“ The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever


„This you have to understand. There's only one way to hurt a man who's lost everything. Give him back something broken.“ The Wounded Land

„We didn't make the world. All we have to do is live in it.“ Lord Foul's Bane

„And he who wields white, wild magic gold is a paradox
For he is everything and nothing
Hero and fool
Potent, helpless
And with one word of truth or treachery
He will save or damn the earth
Because he is mad and sane
Cold and passionate
Lost and found“
The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever

„Where do you get dreams like this?“ Lord Foul's Bane


„Something in her expression made Covenant feel that he came from a very poor world, where no one knew or cared about the healing of stoneware pots.“ Lord Foul's Bane

„Gradually, the night stumbled as if stunned and wandering aimlessly into an overcast day -- limped through the wilderland of transition as though there were no knowing where the waste of darkness ended and the ashes of light began. The low clouds seemed full of grief -- tense and uneasy with accumulated woe -- and yet affectless, unable to rain, as if the air clenched itself too hard for tears. And through the dawn, Atiaran and Covenant moved heavily, unevenly, like pieces of a broken lament.“ Lord Foul's Bane

„There is no life which does not possess its own importance, no life which may not be touched by greatness at any time -- Yes, be touched by greatness and have a hand in it.


(from The Mirror of Her Dreams)“

„Part of him wanted to weep... but his purpose was rigid within him. He felt he could not bend to gentleness without breaking.“ The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever
