“Ninety percent of most magic merely consists of knowing one extra fact.” ***'Just be yourself,' said Sweeper. 'See it through. There'll come a timewhen you'll look back and see how it all made sense.'***'...You'll reach the shore. You must. Otherwise-''-there's no shore,' said Sweeper.***Who really knew what evil lurked in the heart of men?ME.Who knew what sane men were capable of?STILL ME, I'M AFRAID.***There was the beast, all around him. And that's what it was. A beast.Useful, but still a beast. You could hold it on a chain, and make itdance, and juggle balls. It didn't think. It was dumb. What you were,what you were, was not the beast.***'How dare you? How dare you! At this time! In this place! They did thejob they didn't have to do, and they died doing it, and you can't givethem anything. Do you understand? They fought for those who'd beenabandoned, they fought for one another, and they were betrayed. Men like them always are. What good would a statue be? It'd just inspire new fools to believe they're going to be heroes. They wouldn't want that. Just let them be. For ever.'Still my favorite.
