Favorite Costis Quotes

1. "I així, sense voler-ho, el seu excés d'amor em va encomanar un rebuig per qualsevol sentiment i fins i tot una por als acostaments emotius i vibrants cap a una altra persona. Vaig aprendre una lliçó per fugir de tot compromís sentimental: a més estimació, més perills de tota mena. No t'acostis i no et cremaràs. L'amor crema. L'amor consumeix. L'amor mata."
Author: Emili Teixidor
2. "The window opened in the same direction as the king's, and there, summer-bright and framed by the darkness of the stairwell, was the same view. Costis passed it, and then went back up the stairs to look again. There were only the roofs of the lower part of the palace and the town and the city walls. Beyond those were the hills on the far side of the Tustis Valley and the faded blue sky above them. It wasn't what the king saw that was important, it was what he couldn't see when he sat at the window with his face turned toward Eddis."

3. "Is that what the wine is for? To help you think?""Oh, the wine. The wine, Costis, is to help hide the truth. It doesn't work. It never has, but I try it every once in a while just in case something in the nature of the wine might have changed."
Author: Megan Whalen Turner
4. "Costis flinched and looked away from this compensation to the king's handicap, only to find himself looking into the king's face instead. Eugenides matched Costis look for look, his expression grave, his eyes like pools of darkness deeper than Costis could penetrate. For a moment Costis could see, not so much what was hidden but that there were things hidden that the king did not choose to reveal. Things that were not for Costis to see. There was no understanding him, but Costis knew he would march into hell for this fathomless king."
Author: Megan Whalen Turner
5. "Oh, that," said the king with a shrug. "That isn't your honor, Costis. That's the public perception of your honor. It has nothing to do with anything important, except perhaps for manipulating fools who mistake honor for its bright, shiny trappings. You can always change the perceptions of fools."
Author: Megan Whalen Turner
6. "Phresine showed him where he could sleep, in an interior room with no windows, a narrow bed, and a washstand. There were chests stacked along one wall, and Costis guessed the dismal spot was probably a closet cleaned out to make room for him. Hard to believe the royal apartments, so lavish elsewhere, would otherwise have such a plain corner. Expecting better of royal closets, Costis went to bed disappointed."
Author: Megan Whalen Turner
7. "It made Costis wonder for the first time just how much the stoic man really wants to hide when he unsuccessfully pretends not to be in pain."
Author: Megan Whalen Turner
8. "Costis followed, telling himself that it wasn't true that he and the king and even the stone under their feet were nothing but tissue, transparently thin, and that for a moment, the only real thing in the universe had been there on the parapet with the king."
Author: Megan Whalen Turner
9. "Safety is an illusion, Costis. A Thief might fall at any time, and eventually the day must come when the god will let him. Whether I am on a rafter three stories up or on a staircase three steps up, I am in my god's hands. He will keep me safe, or he will not, here or on the stairs."
Author: Megan Whalen Turner
10. "Your Majesty, you just-" Costis stopped."Just what?" the king prompted wickedly.Nothing would induce Costis to say out loud that the king had almost fallen from the palace wall and that Costis had seen him manifestly saved by the God of Thieves.The king smiled. "Cat got your tongue?""Your Majesty, you are drunk," Costis pleaded."I am. What's your excuse?"
Author: Megan Whalen Turner
11. "Dragoste gratuita nu exista; dragostea este expresia cea mai costisitoare din lume. Dar lucrul minunat este ca pre?ul ei a fost platit deja."
Author: Ravi Zacharias

It's like banging my head against the wall, except if I were actually banging my head on a wall, I'd be able to make myself stop."
