From Book 3 of 'The Deeds of Paksenarrion', by Elilzabeth Moon

Master Oakhallow - Courage is not something you have, like a sum of money, more or less in a pouch it cannot be lost, like money spilling out. Courage is inherent in all creatures; it is the quality that keeps them alive, because they endure. It is courage, Paksennarion, that splits the acorn and sends the rootlet down into soil to search for sustenance. You can damage the creature, yes, and it may die of it, but as long as it lives and endures, each living part has as much courage as it can hold. You think of courage as an eagerness for danger, isn't that so?

Paksenarrion I suppose so. At least being able to go on, and fight, and not be mastered by fear.


Master Oakhallow Right. But the essence is the going on. A liking for excitement and danger is like a taste for walnuts or mushrooms or the color yellow. Most people have a little you may have noticed how small children like to scare themselves climbing trees and such but the gift varies in amount. It adds to the warrior's ability by masking fear. But it's not essential, Paksennarion, even to a warrior. The going on, the enduring, is. Even for the mightiest warrior, a danger may be so great, a foe so overwhelming, that the excitement, the enjoyment, is gone. What then? Is a warrior to quite and abandon those who depend on his courage because it isn't fun?


(Pax shook her head.)


Master Oakhallow - No, and put that way it's obvious. You may remember such times yourself. It's true that one who had no delight in facing and overcoming danger would not likely choose to be a warrior, except in great need. But consider your own patron Gird. According to legend, he was no fighter until need his own and his neighbors' drove him to it. Suppose he never enjoyed battle, but did his best anyway: does that make him less worthy of veneration?

Default John Lydon Quotes

My words are my bullets.

U2 - that's a band that never should have existed. There's no life experience in any of their songs.

I cannot comprehend fundamentalism. It's fundamentally wrong.

These days young kids don't have any place to form an epic adventure. It's more often in front of the TV screen or a laptop. That's very hard on them. They're being taught daily unsocial skills. Facebook is an unsocial skill. It's so sad.

People should never allow themselves to be dictated to by media.


John Lydon

My Fellow Americans (1996)

Russell Kramer: There was only one assassination attempt on me. You had three.

Matt Douglas: Two. The woman in Phoenix doesn't count. She only had a starter pistol.

"There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side-by-side in this country of ours. You, the mothers, who sent their sons from faraway countries, wipe away your tears. Your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land, they have become our sons aswell."

Kemal Ataturk, (1881-1938) President of Turkey 1923-38, to a group of visiting Australians at Anzac Cove, 1934. This quote is inscribed on the memorial there, and on the Ataturk memorials in Canberra and Wellington.

Sign outside a bar:
"Buy your first beer for twice the price and get your second free!"

Sign outside another business:
What did Delaware?
Her New Jersey.

From writer Ken MacLeod's introduction to Charles Stross' The Atrocity Archives:
"Yes, there was a time not long ago when news about the existence of the Internet spread by word of mouth."

Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.

The best defense against usurpatory government is an assertive citizenry.

I profoundly believe it takes a lot of practice to become a moral slob.

I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said.


William F. Buckley Jr


You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.

You're not to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it.

If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything.

The only thing power respects, is power.


Malcolm X
