Robin Hobb book quotes
There are 28 quotes listed in the Assassin's Apprentice category:
The sea was cold, the night was black, and if I'd had any sense, I'd have wished myself elsewhere; but there is something in a boy that takes the mundanely difficult and unpleasant and turns it into a personal challenge and an adventure.
Very little worth knowing is taught by fear.
For it is said, one may ask of the Elderlings, but the answer they give may not be to the question you ask, but to the one you should have asked.

I watch him come, stepping with elven grace, hooves entering and leaving the stream without so much as a splash.
Slanting sunlight through the branches gleams his flanks, polishes his high cheekbones, is swallowed in the darkness of his eyes. When he moves his head, light ricochets off his horns. I do not move or speak.
His cloven hooves cut deep into the moss, scoring the rich earth below the green carpet. It is no longer the friend of my childhood who stands there, but the forest god, the hooved and horned one beholding an intruder in his domain.
from "Cloven Hooves"
