Firstly, I'd just like to say
HALLO! I LOVE YOU ALL.


Anyway... where was I? thinking



Oh yeahhhh,
What are your favorite quotes from the Farseer Trilogy and Tawny Man series?
(I excluded Liveship purposefully because I'm a Fitz-Foolery fan, sorry Liveship-fans (I'm one too though)).

Please try to get the exact quote as it is in the books! =D
I'm curious to see what quotes in particular you found mesmerizing/fascinating/wise. (Yes, all the books were amazing, but don't tell me "all 1,90423lakdlksaad pages!!!")

Honestly it's been so long since I read those books... I can't really answer you, sorry. And quotes aren't really my thing anyway. no

Perhaps having the courage to find a better bath is having the courage to risk making new mistakes. (The Golden Fool)

"The most distinctive part of your fighting style is the incredible way you have of surviving it." - Verity, talking to Fitz

Not sure which one of the Farseer books though.

There are a few in AQ that characters said and I quite liked.

Like when Fitz travelled for a bit with a man, with his daughter and a another girl (the youngest was his niece, I think), who sang and played the harp...something like that (I could have mixed it up with the instrument of Starling).

They get attacked by a couple of men. One attacks Nighteyes somewhere away from the group. Fitz leaves the party mid attack to help Nighteyes, leaving two attackers attacking the two and the blind harpist. The daughter is very much displeased when he comes back to help them out after running off. When he decides to go to sleep right after that the youngest asks him what will happen, if they get attacked again.
Fitz answered something along the lines "Then <insert name of the daughter> can kill them in the order of her choice"

I just loved the rare snide remark Fitz made. For once, he could make a comment, dripping of sarcasm, and get away with it (nobody to retort or chastised him). I'll look up the proper quote another time yes

Had I known you missed it, I would have been rude to you much sooner.
The Fool in Assassin's Quest


I live by such snide comments, and they have aided me endlessly in such petty arguments as I often find myself in -swoon-

Hello King Regal's Bane and Welcome to the Farseer board. You'll see that the board is rather slow but it's filled with excellent people. The quality over the quantity. thumbup

*swoons with you...it's always nice to have someone to swoon with wink*

The Fool had some good lines. He was a fun character, when he finally got more scene's written in.

Welcome King Regal's Bane (nice name btw yes) to our humble sanctuary of insanity!
