"‘This is your baptism,’ Master Blint said, putting both of Kylar’s hands in the blood. It was warm. ‘This is your new religion. If you must worship, worship the way other wetboys do. Worship Nysos, god of blood, semen, and wine. Nysos is a lie like all gods, but at least he won’t make you weak. Today you’ve become an assassin.’"
Durzo Blint (is a fucking boss)
"As the Night Angel thought to himself, “Why am I attracted to her butt? How weird is that? Why do men like butts anyway?"
"Why did woman always believe that talking about a problem would fix it? Some issues were corpses. Hot air made them fester and rot and spread their disease to everything else. Best to bury it and move on."
"Cruelty walked the Warrens holding hands with poverty and rage."
"The God gives simpler problems to lesser men."

"Durzo was right about choosing what you believe and living with the consequences"
Kylar Stern, Beyond the Shadows (The Night Angel Trilogy)
"Your choices? Well, that’s your shit."
Duzo Blint, Beyond the Shadows (The Night Angel Trilogy)
"I don’t kill without cause. Fear isn’t enough to motivate me. It may be beyond your comprehension, but I can hold power without using it."
"At the end of the day, you choose what you believe and you live with the consequences."

"The fight accelerated, but Kylar felt a calm. he was, he realized, smiling. Madness! Yet it was so, and Garuwashi’s thin lips were drawn up in a little smirk of their own. There was beauty here, something precious and rare. Every man wished he could fight. Few could, and only one in a hundred years fought this well. Kylar had never thought to see another master on a par with Durzo Blint, but Lantano Garuwashi might even be better than Durzo, a little faster, his reach a little longer."
