„Civilization after civilization, it is the same.“

—  Steven Erikson, kniha Midnight Tides

Midnight Tides (2004)
Kontext: Civilization after civilization, it is the same. The world falls to tyranny with a whisper. The frightened are ever keen to bow to a perceived necessity, in the belief that necessity forces conformity, and conformity a certain stability. In a world shaped into conformity, dissidents stand out, are easily branded and dealt with. There is no multitude of perspectives, no dialogue. The victim assumes the face of the tyrant, self-righteous and intransigent, and wars breed like vermin. And people die.

„The Letheri are masters at corrupting words, their meanings. They call war peace, they call tyranny liberty. On which side of the shadow you stand decides a word's meaning.“

—  Steven Erikson, kniha Reaper's Gale

Reaper's Gale (2007)
Kontext: For Hood's sake,' the foreigner muttered. 'What's wrong with words?'
'With words,' said Redmask, turning away, 'meanings change.'
'Well,' Anaster Toc said, following as Redmask made his way back to his army's camp, 'that is precisely the point. That's their value — their ability to adapt -'
'Grow corrupt, you mean. The Letheri are masters at corrupting words, their meanings. They call war peace, they call tyranny liberty. On which side of the shadow you stand decides a word's meaning. Words are the weapons used by those who see others with contempt. A contempt which only deepens when they see how those others are deceived and made into fools because they choose to believe. Because in their naivety they thought the meaning of a word was fixed, immune to abuse.

„Do not seek to find hope among your leaders. They are the repositories of poison. Their interest in you extends only so far as their ability to control you.“

—  Steven Erikson, kniha Midnight Tides

Midnight Tides (2004)
Kontext: "You leave me without hope," Brys said.
"I am sorry for that. Do not seek to find hope among your leaders. They are the repositories of poison. Their interest in you extends only so far as their ability to control you. For you, they seek duty and obedience, and they will ply you with the language of stirring faith. They seek followers, and woe to those who question, or voice challenge."

„Fanaticism was poison in the soul, and the first victim in its inexorable, ever-growing list was compassion.“

—  Steven Erikson, kniha The Bonehunters

The Bonehunters (2006)
Kontext: So much had changed inside him. He was no believer in causes, not any more. Certainty was an illusion, a lie. Fanaticism was poison in the soul, and the first victim in its inexorable, ever-growing list was compassion. Who could speak of freedom, when one's soul was bound in chains?

„When undeniable crime had been committed, justification was the act of a coward. And it was cowardice that permitted such crimes in the first place.“

—  Steven Erikson, kniha Toll the Hounds

Toll the Hounds (2008)
Kontext: When undeniable crime had been committed, justification was the act of a coward. And it was cowardice that permitted such crimes in the first place. No tyrant could thrive where every subject said no. The tyrant thrives when the first fucking fool salutes.

„Sometimes, mortals did indeed forget. Sometimes, mortals needed … reminding.“

—  Steven Erikson, kniha Toll the Hounds

Toll the Hounds (2008)
Kontext: Sometimes, mortals did indeed forget. Sometimes, mortals needed... reminding.
