“I am seized with desire to be something more. Something whose echo can drown out the rattle of death.” (Alobar)

“I cannot tolerate the passive obliteration of all that I am to myself.” (Alobar)

I may be mad, [Alobar] thought, but I prefer the shit of this world to whatever sweet ambrosias the next might offer

“Come with me, Alobar, for while we must go forever in despair, let us also go forever in the enjoyment of the world.” (Pan)

“If being alive is not a virtue, then there is little virtue in virtue, that is what I say.” (Alobar)

“The immortals are gone. Now we are the immortals.” (Kudra)

{Teleborgs Slott across Växjösjön}

“A salamander can be only a salamander, an elk an elk, and a bush a bush. True, a bush is complete in its bushness, yet its limits, while not nearly so severe as some foolish men would believe, are fairly obvious. The peasants of Aelfric are like bushes, like salamanders. They were born one thing and will die one thing. But you… you have already been a warrior, a king, and a serf, and from the looks of it, you aren’t through yet. Thus, you have learned the secret of the new direction. That is: a man can be many things. Maybe anything.” (the shaman)
