Ranger's Apprentice: The Ruins of Gorlan Quote I

Will felt a surge of pleasure at the sparing praise, but before he could feel too pleased with himself, Halt added, "Can you cook, boy?"
"Cook, sir?" Will asked uncertainly.
Halt raised his eyes to some unseen superior being. "Why do young people invariably answer a question with another question?" he asked. Then, recieving no reply, he continued, "Yes, cook. Prepare food so that one might it eat. Make meals. I assume you know what food is--what meals are?"

Anywhere Is Quote I

It's either this or that way,
it's one way or the other.
It should be one direction,
It could be on reflection.

The turn I have just taken,
the turn that I was making,
I might be just beginning.
I might be near the end.

Maddigan's Fantasia Quote I

"Hey, I'm watching you," he blurted out, and then wished he had stayed silent. Timon turned, half grinning. The grin would look friendly to anyone passing-just two boys having a bit of fun together-but Boomer knew there was nothing friendly anout it.
"What did you say?" asked Timon.
"I said I was watching you," mumbled Boomer. "I know about you."
"What do you know?" asked Timon.
Boomer took a breath. "I know the truth," he said.
Timon laughed. "Clever you!" he said. "But what's truth, anyway? It's too mixed up for anyone as little and simple as you are. And you need real imagination to get any idea of truth. You'll never get anywhere near to understanding it."

The Grey King Quote I

"I am not a part of your stupid quest any more, I don't care what happens to it. And Cafall was never a part of it either, or a part of your pretty pattern. He was my dog, and I loved him more than anything in the world, and now he is dead. Go away."

The Story of the Champions of the Round Table Quote II

"Likewise that I come to punish you for all the evil you have done."
"And what business is all this of yours?" quoth Sir Nabon, speaking with great fury of voice.
"Messire," quoth Sir Tristram, "know ye not that it is the business of every true knight to rid the world of all such evil monsters as you be?"
