„All men are stupid. They are full of fear and insecurity—it makes them weak.“

—  David Gemmell, книга The King Beyond the Gate

Источник: Drenai series, The King Beyond the Gate, Ch. 13
Контексте: And now I am going to tell you a great truth, and if you are wise, you will take it to your heart. All men are stupid. They are full of fear and insecurity— it makes them weak. Always the other man seems stronger, more confident, more capable. It is a lie of the worst kind, for we lie to ourselves... How do you know? You do not! You listened to the voice of your inadequacy, and because you believed, you are in my power. If I draw my sword, you are dead!
