All the quotes below were tweeted and put on my facebook pages over the last week. The first six are from Andre Norton.

Keplian cover“Warriors never knew when they would eat next.” Andre Norton and Lyn McConchie, The Key of the Keplian.  Eleeri, eating well before setting out on the attempt to rescue Romar.

“What is within may be greater than what is without.” Andre Norton and Lyn McConchie, The Key of the Keplian. Sometimes places of Power have his peculiarity.

“If there is nothing you can do, do nothing. Fretting wastes strength.” Andre Norton and Lyn McConchie, The Key of the Keplian. Romar, helpless but saving his strength to act, remembers the advice of his arms-master.

Magestone cover“Can we not work together to resist this threat?” Andre Norton and Mary H Schaub, The Magestone. Kasarion (the Alizon Lord) in his first meeting with the scholars of Lormt.

“May these night hours bring us wisdom.” Andre Norton and Mary H Schaub, The Magestone. Kasarion, evidently quoting an old Alizon ‘good night’.”

“Silent meditation in the dark should be free from observation or intrusion.” Andre Norton and Mary H Schaub, The Magestone. Kasarion is convincing himself that his thoughts could not be observed.

“Computers did not have emotions.” Marna is telling herself this about the planetary compute, but it certainly acts as if it were glad to have a living person back on Riya.
