„More evil gets done in the name of righteousness than any other way.“

—  Glen Cook, Dreams of Steel
Context: “What do you want, Blade. Why are you doing this?” He shrugged, an uncharacteristic action. “There are many evils in the world. I guess I’ve chosen one for my personal crusade.” “Why such a hatred for priests?” He didn’t shrug. He didn’t give me a straight answer, either. “If each man picks an evil and attacks it relentlessly, how long can evil persist?” That was an easy one. Forever. More evil gets done in the name of righteousness than any other way. Few villains think they are villains. But I left him his illusion. If he had one. I doubted he did. No more than a sword’s blade does. Chapter 23 (p. 310)

„Rich men have dreams. Poor men die to make them come true.“

—  Glen Cook, Water Sleeps
Chapter 87 (p. 314)

„Soldiers live. He dies and not you, and you feel guilty, because you're glad he died, and not you. Soldiers live, and wonder why.“

—  Glen Cook, Soldiers Live
Context: “It doesn’t make much sense, does it?” my darling whispered to me. “People go at the oddest times and from the oddest causes.” “Soldiers live,” I muttered. “You’re turning that into a mantra.” “You feel guilty. You wonder why him and not me, then you’re glad it was him and not you, then you feel guilty. Soldiers live. And wonder why.” Chapter 99, “By the Military Cemetery: Missing Persons” (p. 664)

„There were dreams once upon a time, dreams now all but forgotten. On sad days I dust them off and fondle them nostalgically, with a patronizing wonder at the naivete of the youth who dreamed them.“

—  Glen Cook
Context: An old, tired man. That is what I am. What became of the old fire, drive, ambition? There were dreams once upon a time, dreams now all but forgotten. On sad days I dust them off and fondle them nostalgically, with a patronizing wonder at the naivete of the youth who dreamed them. Chapter 2, “The Plain of Fear” (p. 456)

„I believe in our side and theirs, with the good and evil decided after the fact, by those who survive. Among men you seldom find the good with one standard and the shadow with another.“

—  Glen Cook, Shadows Linger
Context: I do not believe in evil absolute. I have recounted that philosophy in specific in the Annals, and it affects my every observation throughout my tenure as Annalist. I believe in our side and theirs, with the good and evil decided after the fact, by those who survive. Among men you seldom find the good with one standard and the shadow with another. Chapter 33, “Juniper: The Encounter” (p. 367)

„The thing that you know to be true is the lie that will kill you.“

—  Glen Cook
Chapter 5, “An Abode of Ravens: Headquarters” (p. 384)
