“It’s now how we get there that counts; it’s what we do after we arrive.”
“Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself.”
– Count Aral Vorkosigan (A Civil Campaign)
“An electric tension filled the air, the odd blend of hope and fear that any live performance bore, with its risk of imperfection, chance of greatness.”
– Lois McMaster Bujold (Diplomatic Immunity)
“…half of what we call madness is just some poor slob dealing with pain by a strategy that annoys people around him.”
– Mark Vorkosigan (Mirror Dance)
Some quotes from my all-time favorite series, the Vorkosigan Saga by Lois McMaster Bujold. It is one of the most fulfilling, addictive, compelling series ever written. If you haven’t read it yet, you should!
