The Sayings of Mogwat the Magpie:
- If you learn to know your enemy before you hate him, you may learn not to have an enemy.
- Too often a Montmer will take one today over three yesterdays and two tomorrows.
- To see the world with the eyes of others is to stand atop a new mountain.
- Knowing the length of a Montmer’s ear won’t tell you if he can listen.
- Better to live with ten Montmers in uneasy peace than one in a war.
- When you take one backward hop it requires two hops to go forward.
- You are never more alone when you are followed by many.
- Fear not the weak, only they try to hide their weaknesses.
- Nothing in the world is so small that the sun cannot warm it.
- Truth is often painful to speak but soothing to live.
- Of all things the hardest to keep is a promise.
- Lies fly then fall. Truth hops but keeps going.
- Of all challenges the greatest is to be yourself.
- They who pine for the past, fear the future.
- A life without a challenge is a life not lived.
- Life is given. The rest one gives oneself.
- Ignorance is the cruelest weather.
- Only the dead have no choices.
- The future begins in the past.
