Favorite Lupus Quotes

1. "Thus the will to live everywhere preys upon itself, and in different forms is its own nourishment, till finally the human race, because it subdues all the others, regards nature as a manufactory for its own use. Yet even the human race...reveals in itself with most terrible distinctness this conflict, this variance of the will with itself; and we find homo homini lupus."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
2. "...the moment you begin to believe you're worthy of the good things in your life - God gets all Old Testament on your ass and does something vicious, something insane, something totally uncalled for. He gives you lupus or He allows Satan to slaughter your children and cattle or He delivers Ohio to George W. Bush."
Author: Dan Savage
3. "The sky pulsed with stars. Some people say it makes them lonesome when they stare up at the night sky. I can't imagine why. There's no shortage of company. By now there's not a constellation I can't name. Orion. Lupus. Serpens. Hercules. Draco. My father taught me all of their stories. So when I look up I see a galaxy of adventures and heroes and villains, all jostling together and trying to outdo one another, and I sometimes want to tell them to hush up and not distract me with their chatter. I've glimpsed all the stars ever discovered by astronomers, and plenty that haven't been."
Author: Kenneth Oppel
4. "Horgias nodded, his lips drawn back in a smile that was a wolf's snarl. ‘They want us all flogged. Why us?'‘Lupus,' Syrion said. ‘The other centurions hate him, even among the Fourth. He's too distant. He doesn't drink with them or whore with them. They don't know who he is, and so they hate him.'‘He loves war,' I said, who had seen the ice melt from his eyes, and the fire behind it, and these two made sense to me now. I felt the truth in my marrow, and it warmed me. ‘He's bored with camp life. The Fourth are making a huge mistake giving him a reason to fight them."
Author: M.C. Scott
5. "Governor Paetus...' Lupus closed his eyes that we might not read the rage in them. ‘Governor Paetus has informed us that he will return to our camp at Rhandaea with the Fourth legion, there to build the palisades and set up defences sufficient to deter the enemy. He will take with him the Eagles,and keep them safe, so that if a legion is lost it can be re-formed, and its honour may live on.'There was a moment's silence as we all wrestled with the impossibility of what we had heard. The IVth leaving. And the Eagles going with them so that if a legion – our legion, there was no other one – was ‘lost', which is to say annihilated, destroyed to the last man...And that's when our discipline broke apart."
Author: M.C. Scott
6. "Maybe their god's given them special dispensation,' I said.‘Or maybe they've abandoned that god for one that allows battle any day they like.' Tears propped his shield near the fire where the tallow could warm its way into the leather and rose to grip my arm. ‘Either way, I think we might have a battle on our hands.'An actual battle. At last.Around me, men were stirring with a new fire. I saw smiles, none of them directed at me. Then I looked at Tears and saw a look on his face of the kind I hadn't seen in four years.‘Someone had better tell Lupus,' I said, and Horgias bounded off, leaving the rest of us to prepare.‘It'll be a good fight.' Tears let go of my arm, but the prints of his fingers stayed, like living ghosts.‘It had better be.' I was grinning like a fool. I clasped his shoulders in return. ‘The men will mutiny soon if it isn't."
Author: M.C. Scott
7. "I watched a moment longer, studying the terrain and the scuffed earth beyond the bluffs, and then, more softly, said, ‘Tears, signal to Lupus. Ask for cavalry.'We had cavalry...by heaven, did we have cavalry."
Author: M.C. Scott
8. "Tell me we're not going to be stoking up the cook fires to build palisades through the night by their light.' I stood, turning as I spoke.Gravely, he said, ‘You're not going to be stoking the cook fires and building palisades through the night by their light.'Something was wrong with Lupus. He had never in his life made a joke, and his eyes were not laughing; quite the reverse."
Author: M.C. Scott
9. "L'uomo ha bisogno della bellezza.Senza questa apertura, ciò che si spalanca davanti a noi è solo il mondo dell'homo hominis lupus, della barbarie. E la parola - la parola fondata, la parola fondante - è una delle forme in cui si manifesta la bellezza, il legame inquietantemente profondo che lega l'essere humano alla sua fragilità."
Author: Susanna Tamaro
10. "Life's too slippery for books, Clarice; anger appears as lust, lupus presents as hives."
Author: Thomas Harris

Habit is a second nature thta destroys the first. But what is nature? Why is habit not natural? I am very much afraid that nature itself is only a first habit, just as habit is a second nature."
