Notable Quotes

Sheridan: There is only one truth about war, people die. Killing is part of a soldier’s job. We can’t deny it. We can only live with it and hope the reasons for doing it are justified.


Ivanova: No traffic, no complaints, no noise. Traders, trouble makers, and ambassadors all tucked snugly in their little beds. I love this time of night.
Corwin: There is no night in deep space and time is a meaningless concept, when you stop to think about it.
