His quotes are: "Evil is evil. Lesser, greater, middling, it's all the same. Proportions are negotiated, boundaries blurred. I'm not a pious hermit. I haven't done only good in my life. But if I'm to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all.". "People like to invent monsters and monstrosities. Then they seem less monstrous themselves. When they get blind-drunk, cheat, steal, beat their wives, starve an old woman, when they kill a trapped fox with an axe or riddle the last existing unicorn with arrows, they like to think that the Bane entering cottages at daybreak is more monstrous than they are. They feel better then. They find it easier to live.". "Lesser, greater, middling, it's all the same. Proportions are negotiated, boundaries blurred. I'm not a pious hermit, I haven't done only good in my life. But if I'm to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all.". "A lot of people die fighting monsters, and plenty more because they let them. Both are in the wrong.". "Monsters are born of deeds done; crimes, sins. They are created by men. Just as a mirror reflects a man's face, his deeds are reflected in the monsters he creates. Is it then surprising that such a mirror should be cast in steel and glass, that it should speak?".
