Litanie des Saints

"But vastly more irritating to me is the odd opinion that strength/power is the key factor when two people come into conflict."
(“I will admit,” Aslan said. “I did not expect you to come here.”)
Patrick Ruthfuss


"If power is the only important thing, then Frodo loses against Sauron. Hell, if power’s the only important thing then Gandalf loses against Sauron. If magic is the deciding factor of a fight, then four plucky kids from England get their asses turned to stone by the White Which.
So yeah, Rake can turn into a dragon, but the point of fairy tales is that they teach us that dragons can be beaten."

(“And you know you cannot win, especially here,” Aslan continued. “The only question is how much you might hurt me before the end.”)


(Kvothe shook his head seriously.)
 Patrick Ruthfuss


"I see too much fatalism these days, folks. The truth is that the world is full of dragons, and none of us are as powerful or cool as we’d like to be. And that sucks. But when you’re confronted with that fact, you can either crawl into a hole and quit, or you can get out there, take off your shoes, and Bilbo it up.
(“No, the real question is how much will winning cost?”)"
Patrick Ruthfuss


(“Come on now. Except for point of view and a respect for thermodynamics we really don’t have much in common.”)
Patrick Ruthfuss


(Kvothe nodded. “Your books are all finished. You’re immortal in ways more important than the obvious. I’m not quite there yet.” He sighed. “That’s why I figured we should talk.”)
Patrick Ruthfuss


(Another pause, then Aslan spoke. “You’ve thought about this a lot, haven’t you?”)
Patrick Ruthfuss


(Kvothe smiled again, and for a moment his face was almost boyish. “It’s all stories,” he said. “That’s what I do.”)


(“Soon,” Kvothe said.)
Patrick Ruthfuss


(“I call all times ’soon’” Kvothe said.)
Patrick Ruthfuss


(Kvothe smiled. “That reminds me of a joke,” he said. “How do you catch a unique lion?”)
Patrick Ruthfuss


(Kvothe continued, “How do you catch a tame lion?”)
Patrick Ruthfuss


"There’s just so much shit that is really wrong in the world. And it’s so big.
But that’s the point, isn’t it? Yeah. It’s big. What are you going to do? You can lie in bed, staring at the dark. Or you can get up and do something. "
