You are to be a soldier, Nevare. A soldier does not retreat from what he imagines might be an enemy.
Lord Keft Burvelle of the East
And when a warrior is injured, or when he sees his brother fall, dying, he cannot *then* decide that the price is too high to pay. Each of them must go into this battle thinking that if he must die for us to win it, then he will.
But in battle, the man who turns away becomes the prey. No one can stop because his arms are weary or his legs shake with strain. It only stops when your enemy is dead and you are still alive.
Well, whatever you decide to do, let me know this time, will you? A man should know where his friends are.
So I did, but reluctantly, and not at all sure that Burrich was right that bonding with a puppy wouldn´t solve anything. I longed for his warm little world of straw and siblings and milk and mother. At that moment, I could imagine no better one.
Fitz in "Assassin´s Apprentice"
