Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1979291

For him the points of the compass have no great importance. It's all the same to him which one he chooses, as long as he's not idle. That is truly a witcher's principium. The world is full of evil, so it's sufficient to stride ahead, and destroy the Evil encountered on the way, in that way rendering a service to Good. The rest takes care of itself. Being in motion is everything, the goal is nothing. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1320618

Well, what can I say, it's a base world,' he finally muttered. 'But that's no reason for us all to become despicable. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 385711

All around, everywhere you look, is dullness and uncertainty. Even something born of beauty soon leads to boredom and banality, commonplace, the human ritual, the tedious rhythm of life. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 472892

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1558043

You've a right to believe that we're governed by Nature and the hidden Force within her. You can think that the gods, including my Melitele, are merely a personification of this power invented for simpletons so they can understand it better, accept its existence. According to you, that power is blind. But for me, Geralt, faith allows you to expect what my goddess personifies from nature: order, law, goodness. And hope. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 259835

A story can only be contained in a book. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1705094

The goathorn's aim was true and he appeared to have an endless supply of balls. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1842392

I manage because I have to. Because I've no other way out. Because I've overcome the vanity and pride of being different, I've understood that they are a pitiful defense against being different. Because I've understood that the sun shines differently when something changes. The sun shines differently, but it will continue to shine, and jumping at it with a hoe isn't going to do anything. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 2240805

Then, four years later I received news from Aridea. She'd tracked down the little one, who was living in Mahakam with seven gnomes whom she'd managed to convince it was more profitable to rob merchants on the roads than to pollute their lungs with dust from the mines. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 2150157

Only in fables survives what cannot survive in nature. Only myths and fables do not know the limits of possibility.' Three — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1529280

There, where mountains tower today, one day there will be seas; there, where today seas surge, will one day be deserts. But stupidity will remain stupidity. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1558660

It soon transpired, however, that the unicorn only approached youthful maidens, paying absolutely no attention to older ones. Being a wise creature, the unicorn indubitably knows that remaining too long in the state of maidenhood is suspicious and counter to the natural order. Physiologus — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1332660

In Cintra, as she remembered, an attractive man was one whose head reached the ceiling, whose shoulders were as broad as a doorway, who swore like a dwarf, roared like a buffalo and stank at thirty paces of horses, sweat and beer, regardless of what time of day or night it was. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 197635

Your talk's so clever it makes my head spin,' Milva snorted. 'And all your wisdom comes down to what's under a woman's skirt. Woeful philosophers. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1556872

No one wants to suffer. But that is the fate of each. And some suffer more. Not necessarily of their own volition. It's not about to enduring the suffering. It's about how you endure it. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 225360

Cahir, wrinkling his brow imperiously, shouted back something menacing about imperial service, backing up his words with the classically military and ever effective 'for fuck's sake'. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1329327

eyelashes. She smelled of ambergris, roses, library dust, decayed paper, minium and printing ink, oak gall ink, and strychnine, which was being used to poison the library mice. The smell had little in common with an aphrodisiac. So it was all the stranger that it worked on him. 'Don't — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 408359

Only death can finish the fight, everything else only interrupts the fighting. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1378326

The witcher smiled faintly but quite nastily. "If I understand correctly," he said, "I'm to fight the duel because, if I refuse, I'll be hanged. If I fight, I'm to allow my opponent to injure me because if I wound him, I'll be put to the rack. What charming alternatives. Maybe I should save you the bother? I'll thump my head against the pine tree and render myself helpless. Will that grant you satisfaction?" "Don't — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 2011072

It is well known that if there is anything that makes men thirstier than the acquisition of knowledge it is the full or partial prohibition of drinking. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 120238

It's an invention, a fairy tale devoid of any sense, like all the legends in which good spirits and fortune tellers fulfill wishes. Stories like that are made up by poor simpletons, who can't even dream of fulfilling their wishes and desires themselves. I'm pleased you're not one of them, Geralt of Rivia. It makes you closer in spirit to me. If I want something, I don't dream of it - I act. And I always get what I want. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1050054

winning battles by means of a rapid escape from the battlefield is permissible from the point of view of most military doctrines. The — Andrzej Sapkowski

Geralt knew that bonnet and that feather, which were famed from the Buina to the Yaruga, known in manor houses, fortresses, inns, taverns and whorehouses. Particularly whorehouses. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 885384

And so,' smiled the Witcher, 'I have no choice? I have to enter into a pact with you, a pact which should someday become the subject of a painting, and become a sorcerer? Give me a break. I know a little about the theory of heredity. My father, as I discovered with no little difficulty, was a wanderer, a churl, a troublemaker and a swashbuckler. My genes on the spear side may be dominant over the genes on the distaff side. The fact that I can swash a buckler pretty well seems to confirm that. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1059297

Some have brains, so they get a book! Others are feather-brained, so they get a broom! — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1211652

Like all cats, they could see what was invisible and could not be deceived by a simple spell. 'This parade — Andrzej Sapkowski

Nenneke shrugged, bandaging his — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 769830

Cats like sleeping and resting on intersections. There are many stories about magical animals but really, apart from the dragon, the cat is the only creature which can absorb the force. No one knows why a cat absorbs it and what it does with it ... — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1700814

Now you're lying, Dandelion.' 'Not lying, just embellishing, and there's a difference. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 2046731

Coodcoodak, on his knees, was strangling Draig Bon-Dhu's bagpipes with his hands, while, with his head thrown back, he shouted over the monstrous sounds emerging from the bag, wailed and roared, cackled and croaked, bawled and squawked in a cacophony of sounds made by all known, unknown, domestic, wild and mythical animals. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 730710

We know little about love. Love is like a pear. A pear is sweet and has a distinct shape. Try to define the shape of a pear. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 623829

Why have you gone so red, crimson as a poppy? You wanted to know, didn't you? So you've got the honest truth and faithful history of a world where he who shatters the skulls of others most efficiently and swells women's bellies fastest, reigns. And it's just as hard to compete with you people in murdering as it is in screwing - — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 269457

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 114700

Anyone,' Ayallac'h wiped his hands on a rag, 'can foretell the future. And everyone does it, for it is simple. It is no great art to foretell it. The art is in foretelling it accurately.' 'An — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 130149

Spell?" The priest proudly raised his head. "I'm not a godless sorcerer! I don't cast spells! My power comes from faith and prayer!" "Can you or can't you?" "I can." "Then get on with it, because time's pressing on." "Geralt, — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 187897

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 220261

Destiny has many faces. Mine is beautiful on the outside and hideous on the inside. She has stretched her bloody talons toward me - — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 226382

Is always murder, regardless of motive or circumstance. Thus those who murder or who prepare to murder are malefactors and criminals, regardless of who they may be: kings, princes, marshals or judges. None who contemplates and commits violence has the right to consider himself better than an ordinary criminal. Because it is in the nature of all violence to lead inevitably to crime. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 232226

In this rotten world, Zoltan Chivay, goodness, honesty and integrity become deeply engraved in the memory.' 'That — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 247245

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 248328

And let us be seated, gentlemen. Drinking standing up, in a rush and without due reverence, does not become the nobility.' They — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 286754

Were I to attempt to be good to everyone, to the entire world and to all the creatures living in it, it would be a drop of fresh water in the salt sea. In other words, a wasted effort. Thus, I decided to do specific good; good which would not go to waste. I'm good to myself and my immediate circle. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 328927

The elf nodded. From her saddlebow, she took a lute, a marvelous instrument of light, tastefully inlaid wood with a slender, engraved neck. Without a word, she handed the lute to Dandilion. The poet accepted the instrument and smiled. Also without a word, but his eyes said a great deal. "Farewell, — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 339753

Something bad's happening, Geralt," he muttered. "In the castle. Something's frightening people." "What?" "What usually frightens people? A monster. They say it's small, hunchbacked, bristling like a Urcheon. It creeps around the castle at night, rattles chains. Moans and groans in the chambers." "Have — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 366597

Doubts. Only evil, sir, never has any. But no one can escape his destiny. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 367708

Shut up, you brat," interrupted Geralt, smiling nastily "Halt your uncontrolled little tongue. You speak to a lady who deserves respect, especially from a Knight of the White Rose ... — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 429963

For the law is not jurisprudence, not a weighty tome full of articles, not philosophical treatises, not peevish nonsense about justice, not hackneyed platitudes about morality and ethics. The law means safe paths and highways. It means backstreets one can walk along even after sundown. It means inns and taverns one can leave to visit the privy, leaving one's purse on the table and one's wife beside it. The law is the sleep of people certain they'll be woken by the crowing of the rooster and not the crashing of burning roof timbers! And for those who break the law; the noose, the axe, the stake and the red-hot iron! Punishments which deter others. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 458161

It is better to go forward without an aim than loiter without an aim, and with surety much better than to retreat without an aim. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 546465

There's a grain of truth in every fairy tale, — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 560859

A baptism of fire, the Witcher thought, furiously striking and parrying blows. I was meant to pass through fire for Ciri. And I'm passing through fire in a battle which is of no interest to me at all. Which I don't understand in any way. The fire that was meant to purify me is just scorching my hair and face. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 572562

You can't stop a soldier from being frightened but you can give him motivation to help him overcome that fear. I have no such motivation. I can't have. I'm a witcher: an artificially created mutant. I kill monsters for money. I defend children when their parents pay me to. If Nilfgaardian parents pay me, I'll defend Nilfgaardian children. And even if the world lies in ruin - which does not seem likely to me - I'll carry on killing monsters in the ruins of this world until some monster kills me. That is my fate, my reason, my life and my attitude to the world. And it is not what I chose. It was chosen for me. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 577823

The exception, as ever, was the children. Freed from the constraints of silence which had been enforced during the bard's performance, the children dashed into the woods with wild cries, and enthusiastically immersed themselves in a game whose rules were incomprehensible to all those who had bidden farewell to the happy years of childhood. Children of elves, dwarves, halflings, gnomes, half-elves, quarter-elves and toddlers of mysterious provenance neither knew — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 630543

Become a priest. You wouldn't be bad at it with all your scruples, your morality, your knowledge of people and of everything. The fact that you don't believe in any gods shouldn't be a problem - I don't know many priests who do. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 642622

Thus on the tenth day of September we all crossed to the left bank of the Yaruga, only once being hailed by the guard, at whom Cahir, wrinkling his brow imperiously, shouted back something menacing about imperial service, backing up his words with the classically military and ever effective 'for fuck's sake'. Before anyone had time to grow curious about us, we were already on the left bank of the Yaruga and deep in the Riverdell forest ... — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 655063

For me," mused Dandelion, "a mattress without a young woman isn't a mattress at all. It is incomplete happiness ... — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 678643

Worse and somehow embarrassing affair are "ghost" dreams, from which the dreamer only remembers fragments, and very short snippets of events, after which the next morning is left only a vague feeling of a messaged received. If the "ghost" is repeated several times, it is certain that it is a dream which is important for some reason. Then the dreamer, through concentration and auto-suggestion tries to force the dream again, this time a more specific "ghost". The best result are to force oneself to dream again immediately after waking up - called "hooking". If the dream does not produce a "hook" they try and produce a vision during one of the following session by concentration and meditation prior to going to sleep. Such pressure programming is called "anchoring". — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 779300

He didn't notice the fist clad in a black silver-studded glove as it flew towards the side of his face. But although the night was dark, the moon was new and the sky overcast, he suddenly saw ten thousand dazzlingly bright stars. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 797763

Stop staring at me this instant! the sorceress shouted at Geralt. She writhed like a snake in her bonds in a vain attempt to conceal her naked charms. Geralt obediently diverted his eyes. Dandelion didn't. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 827952

During his life, the witcher had met thieves who looked like town councilors, councilors who looked like beggars, harlots who looked like princesses, princesses who looked like calving cows and kings who looked like thieves. But Stregobor always looked as, according to every rule and notion, a wizard should look. He was tall, thin and stooping, with enormous bushy gray eyebrows and a long, crooked nose. To top it off, he wore a black, trailing robe with improbably wide sleeves, and wielded a long staff capped with a crystal knob. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 866167

It is better to go forward without a goal, than to have a goal and stay in one place, and it is certainly better than to stay in one place without a goal. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 963240

It's as though a cabbage tried to investigate the causes and effects of its existence, — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 982290

he who fights with the sword dies by the sword. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1072300

The Golden Court, the country town's elegant inn, was crowded and noisy. The guests, locals and visitors, were mostly engaged in activities typical for their nation or profession. Serious merchants argued with dwarves over the price of goods and credit interest. Less serious merchants pinched the backsides of the girls carrying beer, cabbage and beans. Local nitwits pretended to be well-informed. Harlots were trying to please those who had money while discouraging those who had none. Carters and fishermen drank as if there were no tomorrow. Some seamen were singing a song which celebrated the ocean waves, the courage of captains and the graces of mermaids, the latter graphically and in considerable detail. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1147471

Look at his toes. He, let's be frank, has two left feet.' 'Verily,' Chamberlain Le Goff confirmed without a trace of amazement. 'There are plenty of tapestries like that in Beauclair. The master who wove them was a true master. But he drank an awful lot. As artists do. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1158708

Everywhere you are a stranger.' Finished Iskra with seeming carelessness, and quickly and unceremoniously placed a beret with turkey feathers on her head. 'An Outsider everywhere and always different. How shall we call you, little hawk?' Ciri looked into her eyes. 'Gvalch'ca.' The elf laughed. 'Once you start to speak, you speak in multiple languages, little hawk! Very good. You will carry the name from the Elder People, a name that you yourself have chosen. You will be called Falka. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1221140

You've mistaken the stars reflected on the surface of the lake at night for the heavens. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1221458

I like elven legends, they are so captivating. What a pity humans don't have any legends like that. Perhaps one day they will? Perhaps they'll create some? But what would human legends deal with? All around, wherever one looks, there's greyness and dullness. Even things which begin beautifully lead swiftly to boredom and dreariness, to that human ritual, that wearisome rhythm called life. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1234861

May Ye All Wail, for the Destroyer of Nations is upon us. Your lands shall they trample and divide with rope. Your cities razed shall be, their dwellers expelled. The bat, owl and raven your homes shall infest, and the serpent will therein make its nest . . . Aen Ithlinnespeath The — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1269708

You surround the dead with veneration and memory, you dream of immortality, and in your myths and legends there's always someone being resurrected, conquering death. But were your esteemed late great-grandfather really to suddenly rise from the grave and order a beer, panic would ensue. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1289046

Money", he muttered, "opens all doors. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1416900

She also possessed a very expertly stuffed unicorn, on whose back she liked to make love. Geralt was of the opinion that if there existed a place less suitable for having sex it was probably only the back of a live unicorn. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1448513

I mistook stars reflected in a pond at night for those in the sky. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1483982

Evil is evil, Stregobor," said the witcher seriously as he got up. "Lesser, greater, middling, it's all the same. Proportions are negotiated, boundaries blurred. I'm not a pious hermit. I haven't done only good in my life. But if I'm to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all. Time for me to go. We'll see each other tomorrow. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1484731

When they learned what orders they were to execute, they fell into a panic. They were concerned about releasing more than three thousand people from prisons, internment camps and exile. House arrest was to be withdrawn from more than a hundred. 'No, it didn't only apply to bandits, common criminals and hired mercenaries. The pardons were mostly for dissidents. Among the pardoned were henchmen of the deposed King Rhyd and people of the usurper Idi, their virulent partisans. And not only those who had supported in word: most were in prison for sabotage, assassination attempts and armed revolts. The minister of internal affairs was horrified and papa extremely worried. 'While — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1501835

Well, we're afeared. And what of it? Do we sit down and weep and tremble? Life must go on. And what will be, will be. What is destined can't be avoided, in any case. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1511691

Itinerant killers of basilisks; travelling slayers of dragons and vodniks! — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1590915

Then the prophetess said to the witcher: "I shall give you this advice: wear boots made of iron, take
in hand a staff of steel. Then walk until the end of the world. Help yourself with your staff to break the land before you and wet it with your tears. Go through fire and water, do not stop along the way,
do not look behind you. And when the boots are worn, when your staff is blunt, once the wind and the heat has dried your eyes so that your tears no longer flow, then at the end of the world you may
find what you are looking for and what you love...

The witcher went through fire and water, he did not look back. He did not take iron boots or a staff
of steel. He took only his sword. He did not listen to the words of prophets. And he did well because she was a bad prophet. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1616627

It is easy to kill with a bow, girl. How easy it is to release the bowstring and think, it is not I, it is the arrow. The blood of that boy is not on my hands. The arrow killed him, not I. But the arrow does not dream anything in the night. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1627821

What is truth? The negation of lies? Or the statement of a fact? And if the fact is a lie, what then is the truth? — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1650535

I thought I was choosing the lesser evil. I chose the lesser evil. Lesser evil! I'm Geralt! Witcher ... I'm the Butcher of Blaviken - — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1656781

You know fuck all, Dandelion.' 'Do — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1694095

And why not?' the merchant replied seriously. 'Why not have doubts? It's nothing but a human and good thing'.
'What?'
'Doubt. Only an evil man, master Geralt, is without it. And no one escapes his destiny'. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1696077

To be neutral does not mean to be indifferent or insensitive. You don't have to kill your feelings. It's enough to kill hatred within yourself. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1729204

As deformed as a grotesque potato, — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1755237

No. I've no time to waste. Winter's coming. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1859612

In each of us lies a creditor and a debtor at once and the art is for the reckoning to tally inside us. We enter the world as a minute part of the life we are given, and from then on we are ever paying off debts. To ourselves. For ourselves. In order for the final reckoning to tally.' 'Is — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1866934

You inspire trust," he said, "although I know what a rogue you are. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1877378

I know you're almost forty, look almost thirty, think you're just over twenty and act as though you're barely ten. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 1956786

Everyone has some kind of debt. Such is life. Debts and liabilities, obligations, gratitude, payments, doing something for someone. Or perhaps for ourselves? For in fact we are always paying ourselves back and not someone else. Each time we are indebted we pay off the debt to ourselves. In each of us lies a creditor and a debtor at once and the art is for the reckoning to tally inside us. We enter the world as a minute part of the life we are given, and from then on we are ever paying off debts, To ourselves. For ourselves. In order for the final reckoning to tally. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 2121981

Make use of the opportunity to have a bath yourself. I can not only guess the age and breed of your horse, but also its color, by the smell. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 2195334

There may no longer be faith nor truth in the world, but surely good sense still exists. What say you, Dandelion? Is there still good sense in the world? Or do only contemptibility and contempt remain? — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 2196796

How do you find cohabiting with neighbors from whom, after all, you do differ somewhat?"
"I manage." The witcher looked him straight in the eyes, "I manage because I have to. Because I've no other way out. Because I've overcome the vanity and pride of being different. I've understood that they are a pitiful defense against being different. Because I've understood that the sun shines differently when something changes, but I'm not the axis of those changes. The sun shines differently, but it will continue to shine, and jumping at it with a hoe isn't going to do anything. We've got to accept facts, elf. That's what we've got to learn. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 2202948

I shit on justice!" yelled the mayor, not caring if there were any voters under the window. — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 2239007

The hell with all of you, you cooperative fellowship of idiots, united by a common goal which none of you understand. And the hell with me too.' This time the others, following Cahir's example, also remained tactfully silent. Dandelion, Maria Barring, also known as Milva, and Emiel Regis Rohellec Terzieff-Godefroy. 'What a company I ended up with,' Geralt continued, shaking his head. 'Brothers in arms! A team of heroes! What have I done to deserve it? A poetaster with a lute. A wild and lippy half-dryad, half-woman. A vampire, who's about to notch up his fifth century. And a bloody Nilfgaardian who insists he isn't a Nilfgaardian.' 'And — Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski Quotes 2262260

Treaties are like marriage: they aren't entered in to with the thought of betrayal, and once they're concluded one shouldn't be suspicious. And if that doesn't suit somebody, they shouldn't get married. Because you can't become a cuckold without being a husband, but you'll admit that fear of wearing the horns is a pitiful and quite ridiculous justification for enforced celibacy. — Andrzej Sapkowski
