Robin Hobb book quotes
There are 1 quotes by Starling:
Honour and courtesy and justice... they are not real, Fitz. We all pretend to them, and hold them to us like shields. But they guard only against folk who carry the same shields. Against those who have discarded them, they are no shields at all, but only additional weapons to use against their victims.
Starling in Assassin's Quest
Perhaps having the courage to find a better path is having the courage to risk making new mistakes.
from "the Golden Fool"
