Thus, I decided to do specific good; good which would not go to waste. But were your esteemed late great-grandfather really to suddenly rise from the grave and order a beer, panic would ensue.
This practice works among wolves, since it lets the healthiest and strongest individuals survive. But among sentient races selection of that kind usually allows the biggest bastards to survive and dominate the rest.
A team of heroes! What have I done to deserve it? A poetaster with a lute. A wild and lippy half-dryad, half-woman. And do you know why? To ourselves. For ourselves. In order for the final reckoning to tally. Because it's easier to survive the bad times in a group, helping one another. But you humans, you just wait for a chance to make money from other people's mishaps. When there's hunger you don't want want to share out your food, you just devour the weakest ones.
The practice works among wolves, since it lets the healthiest and strongest individuals survive. Such is life.
Debts and liabilities, obligations, gratitude, payments, doing something for someone. Or perhaps for ourselves? For in fact we are always paying ourselves back and not someone else. Each time we are indebted we pay off the debt to ourselves. In each of us lies a creditor and a debtor at once and the art is for the reckoning to tally inside us.
We enter the world as a minute part of the life we are given, and from then on we are ever paying off debts, To ourselves. I was meant to pass through fire for Ciri. And I'm passing through fire in a battle which is of no interest to me at all. Which I don't understand in any way. The fire that was meant to purify me is just scorching my hair and face. Until Tawny Owl's smirk finally vanished.
Some earn money doing what they've learned. Others do what they have to. But not many craftsmen have been as lucky in life as I am: they pay me for a trade I truly and honestly enjoy.

We enter the world as a minute part of the life we are given, and from then on we are ever paying off debts.
El gamo asustado desaparece en el bosque, brilla al saltar la linterna blanquinegra de sus ancas. El agua de los charcos y las grietas estalla en lluvia bajo los cascos del caballo. El caballo estira el cuello, Ciri le da cuerda. It starts off brainy, but always comes back to humping!
The goal of your expedition is, after all, personal and private. More than that, the nature of the goal demands that you accomplish it alone, in person. The risks, dangers, hardships and constant struggle with doubt must only burden you. For, after all, they are components of the penance, the expiation of guilt you want to earn. For were someone to support you in this, help you, take on even a scrap of that baptism of fire, that pain, that penance, they would, by the same token, impoverish you.
They would deprive you of part of the expiation you desire, which would be owed to them for their involvement. After all, it should be your exclusive expiation. I put you at risk.
Are you playing the gentleman all of a sudden? I may have to squat to piss, but my coat is lined with wolf skin, not coney fur! Were I to attempt to be good to everyone, to the entire world and to all the creatures living in it, it would be a drop of fresh water in the salt sea. Il rischio, la minaccia, la fatica, la lotta con la disperazione devono gravare solo ed esclusivamente su di te. Una sorta di battesimo del fuoco direi.
Passerai attraverso il fuoco, che brucia ma al tempo stesso purifica. Per usare un'espressione delicata passo per essere un mostro. Un mostro sanguinario. Maiden, are you not afeared? Welcome back. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
