Zitate Matthew Stover

„A man shouldn't die with no understanding of why he's been murdered“

—  Matthew Stover, buch Heroes Die

The Acts of Caine, Heroes Die (The Acts of Caine: Act of Violence) (1998)
Heroes Die (1998)
Kontext: It's customary, at times like this, to say a few words. A man shouldn't die with no understanding of why he's been murdered. I do not pride myself on my eloquence, and so I will keep this simple.

„It is the pride of discovering that one is not merely a bundle of reflexes and conditioned responses; that instead one is a thinking being, who can choose the right over the easy, and justice over safety.“

—  Matthew Stover, buch Shatterpoint

Mace Windu, p. 251
Shatterpoint (2004)
Kontext: It dawned on me then that Nick was proud of himself. Proud of what we had done. It may have been an unfamiliar feeling for him: that peculiarly delicious pride that comes from having taken a terrible risk to do something truly admirable. Of overcoming the instinct of self-presrvation: of fighting our fears and winning. It is the pride of discovering that one is not merely a bundle of reflexes and conditioned responses; that instead one is a thinking being, who can choose the right over the easy, and justice over safety.

„The prize of individualism--its goal--is self-actualization, which is only another name for vanity. We do not admire men for achieving self-actualization; we admire self-actualization when its end result is a boon to humanity.“

—  Matthew Stover, buch Blade of Tyshalle

(I.3) Del Rey, p. 75
Blade of Tyshalle (2001)
Kontext: "I respect what is repectable," Tan'elkoth replied. "To ask for respect where none has been earned is childish maundering. And what is repectable, in the end, save service? Even your idol Jefferson is, in the end, measured by how well he served the species. The prize of individualism--its goal--is self-actualization, which is only another name for vanity. We do not admire men for achieving self-actualization; we admire self-actualization when its end result is a boon to humanity."

„Without destiny to guide him, he was lost in a vast, whistling darkness. Any direction he might choose was purely abitary; it would make no more sense, offer no more hope, than would sitting still.“

—  Matthew Stover, buch Blade of Tyshalle

(XII.7) Del Rey, p. 426
Blade of Tyshalle (2001)
Kontext: He had no idea what he should do now. Without destiny to guide him, he was lost in a vast, whistling darkness. Any direction he might choose was purely abitary; it would make no more sense, offer no more hope, than would sitting still. Which offered neither sense nor hope at all.

„Anyone who is of a thoughtful, philisophical cast of mind will occasionaly be struck by the appearance of certain organizing principles of history. The forms these principles seem to take inevitably depends upon one's specific obsession.“

—  Matthew Stover, buch Blade of Tyshalle

For a mornachist, history is a struggle of classes of economic civil war. An agriculturalist sees the dynamic of populations, land, and availability of food; a philosopher might speak of the will to power or the will to sythesis; a theologian of the will of God.
(II.2) Del Rey, p. 100
Blade of Tyshalle (2001)

„When the gods would punish us, they answer our prayers.“

—  Matthew Stover, buch Blade of Tyshalle

Del Rey p. 92
Blade of Tyshalle (2001)

„Can't trust a fascist--truth is always your first sacrifice to the welfare of the state“

—  Matthew Stover, buch Blade of Tyshalle

(I.3) Del Rey, p. 74
Blade of Tyshalle (2001)
