Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#1. Writers always have confidence issues - it comes with the territory. We never know where we fit in, or what the actual value of our work might be. So we hit lulls, or slogs. Throw in the idea that many creative people are somewhat manic-depressive, and it can get pretty dark at times. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#2. I thought I would set the world on fire when I got out of college. I had done quite well in a field that was growing. Unfortunately, we got hit with a recession in 1981. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#3. They broke the hug and shared a tremendous kiss, all sloppy and loud, full of fun and full of lust, as only dwarves could do. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#4. You are in my very soul, tormenting me, Anakin went on, not a bit of falseness in his tone. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#5. Cats?" Bruenor gawked at Regis. "Ye brought cats?" Regis smiled and shifted his head in his hands. "You know a better way to get rid of mice? #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#6. Such a typical misunderstanding. He is broken. Something within him is damaged. You can no more expect Drizzt to clearly unwind his twisting thoughts than you could expect a man with shattered legs to run. Just because you cannot see the injury does not mean that it isn't there. Nor is it one that can be cured by force of will, any more than simple determination could mend shattered bones." Jarlaxle #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#7. Any watching the battle would have found no breath in the next few blurring moments. Never had the Underdark witnessed such a vicious fight as when these two masters of the blade each attacked the demon possessing the other - and himself. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#8. When self-indulgence rules, then all the community loses, and in the end, those striving for personal gains are left with nothing of any real value. Because everything of value that we will know in this life comes from our relationships with those around us. Because there is nothing material that measures against the intangibles of love and friendship. Thus, we must overcome that selfishness and we must try; we must care. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by Salvatore J. Cordileone
#9. Respect for the dignity of the human person is the foundational principle of any just society. From a Catholic perspective, it also forms the foundation of all of our Church's social teachings. #Quote by Salvatore J. Cordileone
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#10. We - at least we of sincere character - always judge ourselves by stricter standards than we expect others to abide by. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#11. Outlive your superiors and the world is yours.
~ Beniago #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#12. These were the companions who justified my principles, who gave me the strength to continue against any foe, real or imagined. These were the companions who fought the helplessness, the rage, and frustration.
These were the friends who gave me my life. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#13. But what of faith? What of fidelity and loyalty? Complete trust? Faith is not granted by tangible proof. It comes from the heart and the soul. If a person needs proof of god's existence, then the very notion of spirituality is diminished into sensuality and we have reduced what is holy into what is logical.-Drizzt Do'urden #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#14. One never knows when one might walk into a tale. - Ardaz #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#15. He looked down at the mask hanging around his neck. So simple a lie, and he could walk freely throughout the world.
But would he then be trapped within the web of his own deception? What freedom could he find in denying the truth about himself? #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#16. He's not wanting to fight," she assured the captain.
"He is driven by curiosity?" Deudermont asked.
"By loyalty," Catti-brie answered. "And nothing more. Drizzt is bound by friendship to ye and to the crew, and if a simple contest against the man will make for an easier sail, then he's up to the fight. But there is no curiosity in Drizzt. No stupid pride. He's not for caring who's the better at swordplay."
Deudermont nodded and his expression brightened. The young woman's words confirmed his belief in his friend. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#17. Drizzt turned and tried to catch him, but the huge man bowled the drow over and continued on. Face first into a tree. Before Drizzt could get over to help, Wulfgar was up again and running, too scared and embarrassed, to even groan. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#18. I consider every person an enemy until he has proven himself differently, and I find that in knowing my enemies, I can prepare against anything they might send against me. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#19. I am sorry, was all Drizzt could quietly mouth.
Vierna shook her head, refusing any apology. To Drizzt, it seemed as if that buried part of her that was Zaknafein Do'Urden's daughter approved of this ending. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#20. I've always been a fighter. If you tell me I can't, I'll die trying to prove you wrong. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#21. For I do not want a god to tell me how to behave. I do not want a god to guide my movements and actions - nay. Nor do I want a god's rules to determine that which I know to be right or to outlaw that which I know to be wrong. For I surely do not need to fear the retribution of a god to keep my path aligned with what is in my heart. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by L.J.Smith
#22. Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn about anyone else #Quote by L.J.Smith

Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#24. The future is made of the actions of the present, each and every one, the choices of the moment inadvertently strung together to produce the desired trail. To live each and every day in the best possible manner would afford her a life without regret, and a life without regret was the key to an acceptance of inevitable death. And #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#25. Never be paralyzed by your fears of a future that no one can foretell, even if predictions lead you to the seemingly obvious, and often disparaging, conclusions. That #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#26. When I die ... may there be friends who will grieve for me, who will carry our shared joys and pains, who will carry my memory. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore

#27. There is no limit to beauty, no saturation point in design, no end to the material ... #Quote by Salvatore Ferragamo
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#28. Where in the Nine Hells did you ever get the notion I would fight fair?"

Drizzt Do'Urden #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#29. In the course of events, you do what you think is right and proper, and hold faith that such a course will lead to good ends. To believe less ... if this is what I truly hold in my heart and proclaim, then what a coward I would be to deny such a course out of fear, any fear, #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#30. Things don't really impress me. Memories impress me. It's not the toys, it's the people. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#31. Beware the engineers of society, I say, who would make everyone in all the world equal. Opportunitty should be equal, must be equal, but achievement must remain individual.
- Drizzt Do'Urden #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#32. My very survival has been based upon my belief that there is a higher purpose to this life: that principles are a reward in and of themselves. I cannot, therefore, look forward in despair, but rather with higher hopes for all in mind and with the determination that I might help to reach those heights. This #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#33. When I'm telling stories of my video game days, when I was a really hardcore MMO player, I played 'EverQuest' for two years and played 'World of Warcraft' and several other games for the last ten years or so ... 95% of the stories I'll tell you are 'EverQuest.' #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by L.J.Smith
#34. You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger ... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena. #Quote by L.J.Smith
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#35. That's the whole point of writing to me - I put my characters under incredible duress, and from that comes their truth. In a way, I'm using them to try to find my own answers in life. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by Salvatore J. Cordileone
#36. We Americans can be rightly proud of the fact that the right to the free and unfettered exercise of religion is a primary principle in the vision and founding of our country. It defines us as a people, and has uniquely contributed to making this nation great. #Quote by Salvatore J. Cordileone
Salvatore quotes by Salvatore Quasimodo

Salvatore quotes by Cassandra Clare
#40. We want you to tell us about vampires."
Simon grinned. "What do you want to know? Scariest is Eli in Let the Right One In, cheesiest is late-era Lestat, most underrated is David Bowie in The Hunger. Sexiest is definitely Drusilla, though if you ask a girl, she'll probably say Damon Salvatore or Edward Cullen. But ... " he shrugged, "You know girls."
Julie's and Beatriz's eyes were wide. "I didn't think you'd know so many!" Beatriz exclaimed. "Are they ... are they your friends?"
"Oh, sure, Count Dracula and I are like this," Simon said, crossing his fingers to demonstrate. "Also Count Chocula. Oh, and my BFF Count Blintzula. He's a real charmer ... " He trailed off as he realized no one else was laughing. In fact, no one seemed to realize he was joking. "They're from TV," he prompted them. "Or, uh, cereal."
"What's he talking about?" Julie asked Jon, perfect nose wrinkling up in confusion.
"Who cares?" Jon said. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#41. I am dying. Every day, with every breath I draw, I am closer to the end of my life. For we are born with a finite number of breaths, and each one I take edges the sunlight that is my life toward the inevitable dusk. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#42. Courage in battle and courage in personal and emotional matters are often two separate attributes, and an abundance of one does not necessarily translate into an ample amount of the other. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#43. No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#44. Drizzt would come for him; probably Wulfgar and Catti-brie, too. But not Bruenor. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#45. I have come to know that it [death] is an important thing to keep in mind - not to complain or to make melancholy, but simply because only with the honest knowledge that one day I will die I can ever truly begin to live. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#46. First blood is mine.
Last blood counts for more.
Artemis Entreri and Drizzt Do'Urden #Quote by R.A. Salvatore

#47. To not satisfy you would be a tragedy." - Salvatore from The Tutor by Kailin Gow #Quote by Kailin Gow
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#48. We like to keep what's our own to keep, especially from little thieves with little fingers and big mouths. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#49. If we act in a goodly way because we are afraid of how we will feel if we do not, then we have not truly come to separate the concept of right and wrong. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#50. We've dug our holes and hallowed caves Put goblin foes in shallow graves This day our work is just begun In the mines where silver rivers run
Beneath the stone the metal gleams Torches shine on silver streams Beyond the eyes of he spying sun In the mines where silver rivers run
The hammers chime on Mithral pure As dwarven mines in days of yore A craftsman's work is never done In the mines where silver rivers run
To dwarven gods we sing or praise Put another orc in a shallow grave We know our work has just began In the mines where silver rivers run #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by M. Leighton
#51. I mean, it's not like he's Damon Salvatore hot #Quote by M. Leighton
Salvatore quotes by Salvatore Quasimodo
#52. In opposition to this detachment, he finds an image of man which contains within itself man's dreams, man's illness, man's redemption from the misery of poverty - poverty which can no longer be for him a sign of the acceptance of life. #Quote by Salvatore Quasimodo
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#53. It is a valuable lesson that should often be reinforced - that many who are faced with impending death, a disease that will likely take them in a year's time, for example, quite often insist that their affliction is the best thing that ever happened to them. It takes the immediacy of mortality to remind them to watch the sunrise and the sunset, to note the solitary flower among the rocks, to appreciate those loved ones around them, to taste their food, and revel in the feel of a cool breeze. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#54. So many times have I heard the common lament, "If only I could go back to that age, knowing what I now know!" Those words amuse me profoundly, for in truth, the lament should be, "If only I could reclaim the lust and the joy I knew then! #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#55. Damn you to Lolth's web!" he said. "Don't you dare pretend if doesn't matter to you!" "Why do you care?" Drizzt growled back at him. "No one who has ever made a difference?" "Do you believe that?" "What do you want from me, son of Baenre?" "Just the truth-your truth. You believe that you have never made a difference?" "Perhaps there is no difference to be made," Drizzt replied. "Do not ever say that," Jarlaxle said to him. "Why do you care?" Drizzzt asked. "Because you were the one who escaped," Jarlaxle replied. "Don't you understand? Jarlaxle went on. "I watched you-we all watched you. Whenever a matron mother, or almost any female of Menzoberranzan was about, we spoke your name with vitriol, promising to avenge Lolth and kill you." "But whenever they were not around, the name of Drizzt Do'Urden was spoken with jealousy, often reverence. You do not understand, do you? You don't even recognize the difference you've made to so many of us in Menzoberranzan." "How? Why?" "Because you were the one who escaped!" "You are here with me!" Drizzt argued. "Are you bound to the City of Spiders by anything more than your own designs? By Bregan D'Aerthe?" "I'm not talking about the city, you obstinate fool," Jarlaxle replied, his voice lowering. Again Drizzt looked at him, at a loss. "The heritage," Jarlaxle explained. "The fate. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#56. Even as the stupid dwarves cut down a few of my lesser fighters, more warriors swarm to join the ranks of my army! Doom is upon you all, Drizzt Do'Urden! Akar Kessell is come!" The fog cleared. With a thousand fervent warriors behind him, Wulfgar approached the unsuspecting monsters. The goblins and orcs who were closest to the charging barbarians, holding unbending faith in the words of their master, cheered at the coming of their promised allies. Then they died. The barbarian horde drove through their ranks, singing and killing with wild abandonment. Even through the clatter of weapons, the sound of the dwarves joining in the Song of Tempos could be heard. Wide-eyed, jaw hanging open, trembling with rage, Kessell waved the shocking image away and swung back on Drizzt. "It does not matter!" he said, fighting to keep his tone steady. "I shall deal with them mercilessly! And then Bryn Shander shall topple in flames! #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#57. No one will ever write a fantasy novel better than The Hobbit. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#58. Though many would seek short cuts to the truth, there is no way around the simplest of tenets: hardship begets achievement and achievement begets joy - true joy, and the sense of accomplishment that defines who we are as thinking beings. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#59. Escape was impossible. Victory even more so. Wulfgar's only thought and desire at that moment was to be spared the indignity and anguish of lycanthropy. Then Drizzt entered the room. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#60. Please enter," Kessell said with false courtesy. "Fear not for my trolls that you injured, they will surely heal!" He threw his head back and laughed. Drizzt felt a fool; to think that all of his caution and stealth had served no better purpose than to amuse the wizard! #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by Jeri Smith-Ready
#61. He cut himself off and looked away, dragging a hand through his hair. "I just met her," he muttered to himself. "I'll no' say that."
"Cut the crap," Megan said. "Zachary Moore, this is Aura Salvatore, and yes, she's into science even though she's pretty. Shocker. Get over it." She turned to me. "Show him how you can walk and chew gum at the same time. #Quote by Jeri Smith-Ready

#63. Everyone dies. It is how one lives that matters. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#64. In my stubborn youth, I believed that I could stand alone, that I was strong enough to conquer my enemies with sword and with principles. Arrogance convinced me that by sheer determination, I could conquer helplessness itself. Stubborn and foolish youth, I
must admit, for when I look back on those years now, I see quite clearly that rarely did I stand alone and rarely did I have to stand alone. Always there were friends, true and dear, lending me support even when I believed I did not want it, and even when I did
not realize they were doing it. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#65. Nothin's what it seems, drow!" Bruenor declared. "Nothin'! Ye try to follow what ye know, ye know? But then ye find that ye know not what ye thought ye knowed! Thought a dog'd be tastin' good - looked good enough - but now me belly's cursing me every move! #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by Salvatore Babones
#66. When expert opinion becomes the only politically acceptable point of view, it no longer contributes to the health of democracy but instead promotes a new form of authoritarianism: the liberal authoritarianism of the expert class. #Quote by Salvatore Babones
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#67. The physical powers of the body cannot be separated from the rationale of the mind and the emotions of the heart. They are one and the same, a compilation of a singular being. It is in the harmony of these three-body, mind, and heart- that we find spirit.
...
Spirit. In every language in all the Realms, surface and Underdark, in every time and every place, the word has a ring of strength and determination. It is the hero's strength, the mother's resilience, and the poor man's armor. It cannot be broken, and it cannot be taken away. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by Elizabeth Von Arnim
#68. And there they were, arrived; and it was San Salvatore; and their suit-cases were waiting for them; and they had not been murdered. #Quote by Elizabeth Von Arnim
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#69. Every wrinkle is earned, my love. Day by day, we spend our time together, and the changes that come will be well earned. In your heart you know that I love you, and I have no doubt but that my love will grow with the passage of years. I #Quote by R.A. Salvatore

#71. I am Brister Fendlestick. Velcome to my hoomble home! #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#72. In my travels on the surface, I once met a man who wore his religious beliefs like a badge of honor upon the sleeves of his tunic. "I am a Gondsman!" he proudly told me as we sat beside eachother at a tavern bar, I sipping my wind, and he, I fear, partaking a bit too much of his more potent drink. He went on to explain the premise of his religion, his very reason for being, that all things were based in science, in mechanics and in discovery. He even asked if he could take a piece of my flesh, that he might study it to determine why the skin of the drow elf is black. "What element is missing," he wondered, "that makes your race different from your surface kin?"

I think that the Gondsman honestly believed his claim that if he could merely find the various elements that comprised the drow skin, he might affect a change in that pigmentation to make the dark elves more akin to their surface relatives. And, given his devotion, almost fanaticism, it seemed to me as if he felt he could affect a change in more than physical appearance.

Because, in his view of the world, all things could be so explained and corrected. How could i even begin to enlighten him to the complexity? How could i show him the variations between drow and surface elf in the very view of the world resulting from eons of walking widely disparate roads?

To a Gondsman fanatic, everything can be broken down, taken apart and put back together. Even a wizard's magic might be no more tha #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by Salvatore Russo
#73. We are delighted to work with the Republican National Committee to build a conservative Congressional majority in 2014. They have a keen understanding for the need to bring together sometimes divergent groups with the common purpose of resurrecting a Reagan-like conservative coalition that appeals to all Americans with a message of hope, opportunity and the chance to achieve the American Dream. #Quote by Salvatore Russo
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#74. How ironic it is that our instincts often run exactly opposite from what we truly desire for those we love. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore

Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#77. I have ridden a dragon!" Tiago protested. "I have eaten a dragon," Gromph replied. I have slept with a dragon - two! Jarlaxle thought, but did not say, though he couldn't avoid a grin at the pleasant memory of the wonderful copper dragon sisters, Tazmikella and Ilnezhara. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by Rachel Cohn
#78. I also feel fairly confident that the original Texaco Salvatore was a good family man, with perhaps a propensity for wearing his wife's panties and betting his kids' college money at the track, but otherwise a solid dude. #Quote by Rachel Cohn
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#79. From a parapet on Bryn Shander's wall, Regis, Cassius, Agorwal, and Glensather watched in horror as the wicked force flowed down the stretch away from the two sacked cities, gaining on the fleeing people of Caer-Dineval. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#80. What is it about your race that none of you can seem to properly weigh your own value? Every human seems to think more of herself than she should, or less of herself than is sensible! #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#81. It is not just boredom that propels my steps along paths unknown, but a firm belief that the guiding principle of life must be a search not for what is, but for what could be. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by Salvatore Ferragamo
#82. I am blessed or cursed, depending on how you look at it, with an incurably restless spirit and the ability to work hard. #Quote by Salvatore Ferragamo
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#83. We must allow for every contingency, must prepare for every eventuality and turn in the game. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#84. Luck?" Drizzt replied. "Perhaps. But more often, I dare to say, luck is simply the advantage a true warrior gains in excuting the correct course of action. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#85. What loss is death if life is not to be lived? #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#86. I have seen people paralyze their entire existence around that greatest of mysteries, shaping their every movement, their every word, in a desperate attempt to find the answers to the unanswerable. They fool themselves, either through their interpretations of ancient texts or through some obscure sign from a natural event, into believing that they have found the ultimate truth, and thus, if they behave accordingly concerning that truth, they will surely be rewarded in the afterlife. This must be the greatest manifestation of that fear of death, the errant belief that we can somehow shape and decorate eternity itself, that we can curtain its windows and place its furniture in accordance with our own desperate desires.

Perhaps the greatest evil I see in this existence is when supposedly holy men prey upon the basic fears of death of the common folk to take from them. 'Give to the church!' they cry. 'Only then will you find salvation!'. Even more subtle are the many religions that do not directly ask for a person's coin, but insist that anyone of goodly and godly heart who is destined for their particular description of heaven, would willingly give that coin over.

And of course, the world is ripe with 'Doomsdayers'. people who claim that the end of the world is at hand, and cry for repentance and for almost slavish dedication.

I can only look on it all and sigh, for as death is the greatest mystery, so it is the most personal of revelations. W #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#87. And all our gods are one God," Avelyn replied quickly, not wanting to offend the elf. "A God of differing names perhaps, but of similar tenets. And when those tenets are misinterpreted," the monk went on, his voice turning grave, "when they are used for personal gain or as a #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#88. Icewind Dale. Windswept passes and forbidding glaciers stand at the top of the world. Below them, in the cold valley, an evil force broods: the magic of Crenshinibon, the Crystal Shard.
Now dwarf, barbarian, and drow elf join to battle this evil. Tempted in the furnace of struggle, they form an unbreakable friendship.
A legend is born. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#89. Who are these gods we serve, this pantheon of the Realms, so rich and powerful and varied? If there is a universal truth, how then are there so many realizations of that truth, many similar, but each with rituals or specific demands to separate one from the other, sometimes by minute degree, sometimes by diametric opposition? How can this be? Yet there is universal truth, I believe - perhaps this is my one core belief! - and if that is so, then are not the majority of the pantheon claiming themselves as gods and goddesses truly frauds? #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#90. I'm a working-class kid from a blue-collar New England family. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore

Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#95. Behold Akar Kessell, the Tyrant of Icewind Dale!" he cried. "People of Ten-Towns, your master has come!" "Your words are a bit premature - " Cassius began, but Kessell cut him short with a frenzied scream. "Never interrupt me!" the wizard shouted, #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#96. Did you close that part of your life, Drizzt Do'Urden? And now are you afraid because it might again be opened?"
Drizzt shook his head without hesitation, but it was an unconvincing movement. He paused a long while, they sighed deeply. "I am disappointed," the drow admitted. "In myself, for mt selfishness. I want to see Zaknafein again, to stand beside him and learn from him and listen to his words." Drizzt looked up at Cadderly, his expression truly serene. "But I remember the last time I saw him," he said, and he told Cadderly then of that final meeting. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#97. I didn't and don't go to Internet for any business purposes. The book sales for me by this point are way beyond any influence I might have, positively, or others might have, negatively. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore

#98. Sensual pleasures are, or should be, the culmination of physical desires combined with an intellectual and emotional decision, a giving of oneself, body and spirit, in a bond of trust and respect. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#99. I do that mostly because I believe that the fantasy business is in terrible trouble right now, for several reasons, not the least of which being the almost Democrat vs. Republican mentality of readers on the Internet. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore

Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#102. There is a fine line between friendship and parenting, and when that line is crossed, the result is often disastrous. A parent who strives to make a true friend of his or her child may well sacrifice authority, and though that parent may be comfortable with surrendering the dominant position, the unintentional result will be to steal from that child the necessary guidance and, more importantly, the sense of security the parent is supposed to impart. On the opposite side, a friend who takes a role as parent forgets the most important ingredient of friendship: respect. For respect is the guiding principle of friendship, the lighthouse beacon that directs the course of any true friendship. And respect demands trust. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#103. While change is not always growth, growth is always rooted in change. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#104. •Reality is a curious thing. Truth is not as solid and universal as any of us would like it to be; selfishness guides perception, and perception invites justification. The physical image in the mirror, if not pleasing, can be altered by the mere brush of fingers through hair.

And so it is true that we can manipulate our own reality. We can persuade, even deceive. We can make others view us in dishonest ways. We can hide selfishness with charity, make a craving for acceptance into magnanimity, and amplify our smile to coerce a hesitant lover. The world is illusion, and often delusion, as victors write the histories and the children who die quietly under the stamp of a triumphant army never really existed. The robber baron becomes philanthropist in the final analysis, by bequeathing only that for which he had no more use. The king who sends young men and women to die becomes beneficent with the kiss of a baby. Every problem becomes a problem of perception to those who understand that reality, in reality, is what you make reality to be.

This is the way of the world, but it is not the only way. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#105. For whatever we do in our lives, discipline and control over our own actions ultimately measure the level of our success. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#106. To think that all we've known to be true is not necessarily an absolute is unsettling and almost incomprehensible, and so to walk the road of acceptance and peace often takes more courage than the way of the warrior. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore

#115. Look at me," she sobbed. "Tell me ye feel the same!"
Drizzt did look at Catti-brie, as deeply as he had ever studied the beautiful young woman. He did care for her - of course he did. He did love her, and had even allowed himself a fantasy or two about this very situation. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore

Salvatore quotes by L.J.Smith
#120. Something was shining on Damon's face. She reached toward it, touched it, and lifted her fingers away in wonder.
"Don't be sad," she told him, feeling the cool wetness on her fingertips. But a pang of worry disturbed her. Who was there to understand Damon now? Who would be there to push him, to try to see what was really inside him? "You have to take care of each other," she said, realizing it. A little strength came back to her, like a candle flaring in the wind. "Stefan, will you promise? Promise to take care of each other? #Quote by L.J.Smith
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#121. As I became a creature of the empty tunnels, survival became easier and more difficult all at once. I gained in the physical skills and experience necessary to live on. I could defeat almost anything that wandered into my chosen domain. It did not take me long, however, to discover one nemesis that I could neither defeat nor flee. It followed me wherever I went - indeed, the farther I ran, the more it closed in around me. My enemy was solitude, the interminable, incessant silence of hushed corridors. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#122. Comen out, leetle rodents," the human called in a language that the companions could not understand. The wizard reiterated the request in another tongue, then in drow, and then in two more unknown tongues, and then in svirfneblin. He continued on for many minutes, #Quote by R.A. Salvatore

Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#124. I pray that the world never runs out of dragons. I say that in all sincerity, though I have played a part in the death of one great wyrm. For the dragon is the quintessential enemy, the greatest foe, the unconquerable epitome of devastation. The dragon, above all other creatures, even the demons and the devils, evokes images of dark grandeur, of the greatest beast curled asleep on the greatest treasure hoard. They are the ultimate test of the hero and the ultimate fright of the child. They are older than the elves and more akin to the earth than the dwarves. The great dragons are the preternatural beast, the basic element of the beast, that darkest part of our imagination.

The wizards cannot tell you of their origin, though they believe that a great wizard, a god of wizards, must have played some role in the first spawning of the beast. The elves, with their long fables explaining the creation of every aspect of the world, have many ancient tales concerning the origin of the dragons, but they admit, privately, that they really have no idea of how the dragons came to be.
My own belief is more simple, and yet, more complicated by far. I believe that dragons appeared in the world immediately after the spawning of the first reasoning race. I do not credit any god of wizards with their creation, but rather, the most basic imagination wrought of unseen fears, of those first reasoning mortals.

We make the dragons as we make the gods, because we need them, #Quote by R.A. Salvatore

Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#132. Station is the paradox of the world of my people, the limitation of our power within the hunger for power. It is gained through treachery and invites treachery against those who gain it. Those most powerful in Menzoberranzan spend their days watching over their shoulders, defending against the daggers that would find their backs. Their deaths usually come from the front. -Drizzt Do'Urden #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Salvatore quotes by L.J.Smith
#133. You know why I don't leave," he said again to Damon, who wouldn't look at him. "You can pretend you don't care. You can fool the whole world. But I know differently." It would have been kindest at this point to leave Damon alone, but Stefan wasn't in a kind mood. "You know that girl you picked up, Rachael?" he added. "The hair was all right, but her eyes were the wrong color. Elena's eyes were blue. #Quote by L.J.Smith
Salvatore quotes by L.J. Smith
#134. Damon: I wanted to apologize.
Elena: Good.
Damon: Let me finish. I said I wanted to. And then I realized, I'm not sorry.
Elena: You would rather die than be human, and you expect me to be okay with that?
Damon: I didn't say you were supposed to be okay with it, I just said I'm not sorry. But you know what I really am? Selfish, because I make bad choices that hurt you. Yes, I would rather have died than be human. I'd rather die right now than spend a handful of years with you, only to lose you when I'm too old and sick and miserable and you're still you. I'd rather die right now than spend my last final years remembering how good I had it and how happy I was, because that's who I am, Elena, and I'm not gonna change. And there's no apology in the world that encompasses all the reasons that I'm wrong for you.
Elena: Fine, then I'm not sorry either. I'm not sorry that I met you. I'm not sorry that knowing you has made me question everything, that in death you're the one that made me feel most alive. You've been a terrible person, you've made all the wrong choices, and of all the choices that I've made this will prove to be the worst one. But I am not sorry that I'm in love with you. I love you, Damon. I love you. #Quote by L.J. Smith

I give them a little bit of an escape. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore

#153. So," dark Susurre said quietly, "if you follow the curve ... in a way your Damon did die to save Fell's Church from another massacre like the one on that Japanease island. He kept saying that was what he'd come to the Nether World to do. Do you not think he would be satisfied? At peace?"
"At PEACE?!" Stefan spat bitterly, and Sage growled.
"Woman," you obviously have never met Damon Salvatore before." The tone in his voice
more resonant, more threatening somehow
made Elena finally break off her staredown with the red-haired Idola. She turned and looked
and saw the enormous room filled with Sage's outspread wings. #Quote by L.J.Smith
Salvatore quotes by Salvatore Quasimodo
#154. As the poet has expected, the alarms now are sounded, for - and it must be said again - the birth of a poet is always a threat to the existing cultural order, because he attempts to break through the circle of literary castes to reach the center. #Quote by Salvatore Quasimodo

Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#159. Is yours an honest lament? ... Most are not, you know. Most self-imposed burdens are founded on misperceptions. We - at least we of sincere character - always judge ourselves by stricter standards than we expect others to abide by. It is a curse, I suppose, or a blessing, depending on how one views it ... Take it as a blessing, my friend, an inner calling that forces you to strive to unattainable heights. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore

Salvatore quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#165. Another week of emptiness, of solitude, though the schooner was fully crewed and there were few places where someone could be out of sight of everyone else. That was the thing about the open ocean, you were never physically alone, yet all the world seemed removed. Catti-brie and Drizzt had spent hours together, just standing and watching, each lost, drifting on the rolls of the azure blanket, together and yet so alone. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore

#179. Nostalgia is a necessary thing, I believe, and a way for all of us to find peace in that which we have accomplished, or even failed to accomplish. At the same time, if nostalgia precipitates actions to return to that fabled, rosy-painted time, particularly in one who believes his life to be a failure, then it is an empty thing, doomed to produce nothing but frustration and an even greater sense of failure. #Quote by R.A.

Salvatore quotes by Umberto Eco
#181. Often during our journey I heard William mention "the simple," a term by which some of his brothers denoted not only the populace but, at the same time, the unlearned. This expression always seemed to me generic, because in the Italian cities I had met men of trade and artisans who were not clerics but were not unlearned, even if their knowledge was revealed through the use of the vernacular. And, for that matter, some of the tyrants who governed the peninsula at that time were ignorant of theological learning, and medical, and logical, and ignorant of Latin, but they were surely not simple or benighted. So I believe that even my master, when he spoke of the simple, was using a rather simple concept. But unquestionably Salvatore was simple. #Quote by Umberto Eco

#192. He put his head down and charged at the mirror. Perhaps it was a teleportation door to another section of the city, perhaps a simple doorway to a room beyond. Or perhaps, Alton dared to imagine in those few desperate seconds, this was some interplanar gate that would being him into a strange and unknown plane of existence!
He felt the tingling excitement of adventure pulling him on as he neared the wonderer thing - then he felt only the impact, the shattering glass, and the unyielding stone wall behind it.
Perhaps it was just a mirror. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore

#196. There is no greater shackle than self-deception. A man who denies his heart, either through fear of personal consequence - whether regarding physical jeopardy, or self-doubt, or simply of being ostracized - is not free. To go against your values and tenets, against that which you know is right and true, creates a prison stronger than adamantine bars and thick stone walls. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore

#200. A man inferior with the blade or with his thoughts can still so elevate himself," Entreri explained curtly, "if he can impart the belief that some god or other speaks through him. It is the greatest deception in all the world and one embraced by kings and lords, while the minor lying thieves on the streets or Calimport and other cities lose their tongues for so attempting to coax the purses of others. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
