And another batch of quotes! I really love the ones from "Shades of Earth" - this book is brilliant and just mind-blowing! Have you read it yet? I also adore everything George R. R. Martin writes, this man is so damn talented!

We read fantasy to find the colors again, I think. To taste strong spices and hear the songs the sirens sang. There is something old and true in fantasy that speaks to something deep within us, to the child who dreamt that one day he would hunt the forests of the night, and feast beneath the hollow hills, and find a love to last forever somewhere south of Oz and north of Shangri-La.Shades of Earth
“If it's a matter of dying here or dying there, I think I'd like to at least see the world first.”

"I've seen most of what there is to be afraid of in this world, and to tell you the truth, the worst of them are the ones that make you afraid in the light. The things that your eyes see plainly and can't forget are worse than huddled black figures left to the imagination. Imagination has a poor memory, it slinks away and goes blurry. Eyes remember for much longer.
