Shadow Lodge

"The Wizard's First Rule: People are stupid. Given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true. People's heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool."
~ Zeddicus Z'ul Zorander, Wizards First Rule by Terry Goodkind

Shadow Lodge

"And then there was Abenthy, my first real teacher. He taught me more than all the others set end to end. If not for him, I would never have become the man I am today.

I ask that you not hold it against him. He meant well."

~ Kvothe, son of Arliden, The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

Shadow Lodge

"I have a favor to ask beyond mere admission. It has taken me nearly three years to get here. I may seem young, but I belong here as much, if not more, than some rich lordling who can't tell salt from cyanide by tasting it.

Admit me for more than two jots and I will not be able to attend. Admit me for less and I will be here every day, while every night I will do what it takes to stay alive while I study here. I will sleep in alleys and stables, wash dishes for kitchen scraps, beg pennies to buy pens. I will do whatever it takes.

But admit me free, and give me three talents so I can live and buy what I need to learn properly, and I will be a student the likes of which you have never seen before."

~ Kvothe, son of Arliden, The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

“To say that there is a case for heroes is not to say that there is a case for hero-worship. The surrender of decision, the unquestioning submission to leadership, the prostration of the average man before the Great Man – these are the diseases of heroism, and they are fatal to human dignity. … History amply shows that it is possible to have heroes without turning them into gods. And history shows, too, that, when a society, in flight from hero-worship, decides to do without great men at all, it gets into troubles of its own.”

– Arthur Schlesinger Jr.


“Pop music is about stealing pocket money from children.”

– Ian Anderson


"When you wake up look in the mirror and laugh at your self, that way at least you made one person happier today." Mr. Fishy

– Boothby Graffoe, English comedian

"People, I just want to say, you know, can we all get along?" - Rodney King


“Our intentions tend to be much more real to us than our actions, and this can lead to a great deal of misunderstanding with other people, to whom our actions tend to be much more real than our intentions.”

– E.F. Schumacher


“Your memory is a monster; you forget – it doesn’t. It simply files things away. It keeps things for you, or hides things from you – and summons them to your recall with a will of its own. You think you have a memory; but it has you.”

– John Irving, quoted in The Times of London
