The Silent Tower Quotes.

1. "To the pure, all things are pure, Antryg remarked, in Magister Magus’ best soothsayer voice, and to the unimaginative, all things are devilish."
- Barbara Hambly, The Silent Tower

2. "Of course I’m frivolous, [Antryg] replied mildly. You yourself must know how boring gravity is to oneself and everyone else."
- Barbara Hambly, The Silent Tower

3. "Funny, [Antryg] said, if you’re a mage, they always ask you to read the future, as if knowing it will help. I think three-fourths of all prayers prayed are for two and two not to equal four."
- Barbara Hambly, The Silent Tower

4. "You mean magic is predicated on hope? Hope, [Antryg] said, and belief in life. We move blindly from second to second through time. Hope and magic both involve the casting forward of the soul. In a way, both magic and hope are a kind of madness."
- Barbara Hambly, The Silent Tower
