2. "I’m saying there is evil in the world, Master Kit said, hefting the box on his hip, and doubt is the weapon that guards against it. Yardem took the box from the old actor's hands and lifted it to the top of the pile. "But if you doubt everything," the Tralgu said, "how can anything be justified?" "Tentatively.

3. "The weapon is poison,' Kit said. 'I believe that the cause we carry it in is just, but that will not protect you.

In time, you will grow ill from it, and eventually, inevitably, it will kill you.' 'It's a sword, Kit,' Marcus said, lifting the green scabbard from it's place. They're all like that."
