Love is happiness, but only when you believe it will last forever. Even though every time it turns out to be a lie, it's only faith that gives love its strength and joy.

When people love each other, when they find each other out of thousands and millions of people. It's always destiny.

We're not given the chance to choose absolute truth. Truth's always two-faced. The only thing we have is the right to reject the lie we find most repugnant.

A car's not the right place for showing off to a girl--the bed's the place for that. The consequences of a mistake there are more upsetting, but less tragic.

The simple people are trash. A herd of sheep that are good for shearing, but sometimes it's more profitable to slaughter them.

Ill-considered but well-intentioned actions do more good that actions that are well-considered but cruel.

Evil has no need to bother with eliminating Good. It's far simpler to let Good fight against itself.

Generally speaking, we can and should say everything. We just have to choose the right time, otherwise the truth can be worse than a lie.

What an unfortunate instrument the guitar is! An instrument of such great nobility, a genuine monarch of music-- reduced to a pitiful lump of wood with six strings, constantly abused by people with no ear and no voice.

Nobody can be forced to commit an act of villainy. You can't push anybody into the mud; people always step into it themselves.

How wonderful it would be if everything could always be as clear and simple as it used to be when you were twelve years old, or twenty years old. If there really were only two colors in the world: black and white. But even the most honest and ingenuous cop, raised on the resounding ideal of the stars and stripes, has to understand sooner or later that there's more than just Darkness and Light out on the streets. There are understandings, concessions, agreements. Informers, traps, provocations. Sooner or later the time comes when you have to betray your own side, plant bags of heroin in pockets, and beat people on the kidneys--carefully, so there are no marks.

I suppose that literature as it is won't die, science fiction included. But games are becoming an extremely important part of the science fiction world, including games that are adapted from books (or vice versa: books that are adapted from games). It's wonderful to have the opportunity to play and see your favorite characters on the screen, but the opportunity to read a book does not become less attractive.

Evil is a hydra with many heads, and the more of them you cut off, the more it grows! Hydras have to be starved to death, do you understand that? Kill a hundred Dark Ones, and a thousand more will take their place.
