Quote of the Day


When the one arises who can make you laugh, solemn Ista, angry Ista,
iron Ista, then your heart will be healed.
You have not prayed for this:
it’s guerdon even the gods cannot give you.
We are limited to such simples as redemption from your sins.

-Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold

I wasn't familiar with that one; it's beautiful.

I haven't read that of Bujold's. I did like the whole Miles series though...

I had just recently discovered her as an author, (picked up a copy of The Sharing Knife at a used book store) now must away to the library to reserve more of her writing...

Very nice, and Bujold does write some striking things...
