Book Quote of the Day: The Naming


‘What difference, being a pawn for the Light or a pawn for the Dark?’

There was a short silence. 

‘There is a great difference,’ said Cadvan softly. ‘One difference is that for the Dark, certainly, you are a pawn. For the Light, you are a free human being, free to make mistakes, to do wrong, even. You are free to choose, whether or not you believe it.’

‘Funny idea of freedom.’ 

‘It is the difference between commitment and slavery,’ Cadvan said. ‘Between working for what you hope for and believe in the depths of your heart, and what someone forces you to do.’ 

-Maerad and Cadvan, The Naming, Alison Croggon, 2005
