Robert Jordan
Honor? Maybe they're letting him sleep on silk, but a prisoner is still a prisoner.
Jordan quotes
That was all he ever really wanted from women; a smile, a dance, a kiss, and to be remembered fondly.
Jordan
The gall of the man. The utter gall! Detaining us! Restricting us!




Jordan Robert quotes
If you try putting a woman on a horse when she does not want to go, she may put a knife in your ribs.
Jordan Robert
On a day of fire and blood, a tattered banner waved above Dumai's wells, bearing the ancient symbol of Aes Sedai. On a day of fire and blood and the one power, as prophecy had suggested, the unstained tower, broken, bent knee to the forgotten sign. The first nine Aes Sedai swore fealty to the Dragon Reborn, and the world was changed forever.
Robert Jordan quotes
I always get what I want in the end. And I think I want...ornamental ironwork. For the windows of my bedchamber.
Robert Jordan
Young men can be impetuous, young men can be rush, young men can be fools, but the Car'a'carn cannot let himself be a young man.
Jordan Robert quotes
Courage to strengthen, fire to blind, music to daze, iron to bind.
Jordan
The wheel of a man's life. No mercy. No pity.
Jordan Robert
Iím no lord. Iíve more respect for myself than that.
Robert Jordan
By the look of you, Nynaeve, I could almost think you were angry, but I know you have such a sweet disposition people ask you to dabble your fingers in their tea.




Robert Jordan quotes
There is an old saying here in the Borderlands: "Better to have one woman on your side than ten men."
Robert Jordan
Mat was caught up in it now. He more than merely liked gambling, and battle was a gamble to make dicing in taverns a thing for children and toothless invalids. Lives were the stake here, yours and other men's, men who were not even there. Make the wrong wager, a foolish bet, and cities died, or whole nations. Natael's somber music was fit accompaniment. At the same time, this was a game that set the blood racing.
Jordan quotes
Remember, you fool! Remember your futile attack on Great Lord of the Dark! Remember his counterstroke! Remember! Even now the Hundred Companions are tearing the world apart, and every day a hundred men more join them. What hand slew Ilyena Sunhair, Kinslayer? Not mine. Not mine. What hand struck down every life that bore a drop of your blood, everyone who loved you, everyone you loved? Not mine, Kinslayer. Not mine. Remember, and know the price of opposing Shai'tan!
Jordan Robert
Young men and fools sometimes bear pain they do not have to as a badge of their pride. Or their foolishness.
Jordan Robert quotes
Death rides on my shoulder, death walks in my footsteps. I am death.
Robert Jordan
The rose petal floats on water. The kingfisher flashes above the pond. Life and beauty swirl in the midst of death.
Robert Jordan quotes
I will use anybody I must. You said it yourself; I am who I am. And I'm using myself up, Perrin, because I have to. Just like I'll use anybody I have to. We don't have a choice anymore. Not me, not you, not anybody!
Robert Jordan
As my Lord says, my Lord's leg is not a side of beef. Thank you, my Lord, for instructing me.
Jordan Robert
What you need isnít always what you want.
