Favorite Quotes from “The Blade Itself”

I recently read The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie and here are a few of my favorite quotes.

A Dreaded Task

“Once you got a task to do, it’s better to do it than to live with the fear of it.”

Be Realistic

“You have to be realistic. You have to be. No matter how much it hurts.”

When Man Worships No God

She looked down at the floor, but Yulwei surprised her by stepping forward suddenly. She raised her hand, to ward off a blow, but instead he put his arms round her and squeezed her tightly. A strange feeling. Being so close to someone else. Warm. Then Yulwei stepped away, one hand on her shoulder. “Walk in God’s footsteps, Ferro Maljinn.”

“Huh. They have no God here.”

“Say rather that they have many.”


“Had you not noticed? Here, each man worships himself.”
