Robin Hobb book quotes
There are 2 quotes listed in the Wolf's Brother category:
I would rather be lord of the herd than herdlord.
Because of the magic. Because you are more herdfolk than you know. You thought you might be a man-killer. You aren't. You fought Joboam like you were wrestling a pregnant vaja. But for my magic, he'd have killed you. There is no murder in you.
The weapon we throw away today is the one at our throats tomorrow.
Chade in "the Golden Fool"
