„Death cannot be struggled against, brother. It ever arrives, defiant of every hiding place, of every frantic attempt to escape.“

—  Steven Erikson, livro Midnight Tides

Midnight Tides (2004)
Contexto: Death cannot be struggled against, brother. It ever arrives, defiant of every hiding place, of every frantic attempt to escape. Death is every mortal's shadow, his true shadow, and time is its servant, spinning that shadow slowly round, until what stretched behind one now stretches before him.

Why We Must Not Reelect President Bush (2004)
Contexto: War and occupation create innocent victims. We count the body bags of American soldiers; there have been more than 1000 in Iraq. The rest of the world also looks at the Iraqis who get killed daily. There have been 15 times more. Some were trying to kill our soldiers; far too many were totally innocent, including many women and children. Every innocent death helps the terrorists' cause by stirring anger against America and bringing them potential recruits.

Contexto: I thought: Surely the fear of God is not in this place; and they will slay me for my wife's sake.

And it came to pass, when God caused me to wander from my father's house, that I said unto her: This is thy kindness which thou shalt show unto me; at every place whither we shall come, say of me: He is my brother.
