Quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold

"Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself."

"If you can't be seven feet tall, be seven feet smart."

"Some prices are just too high, no matter how much you may want the prize. The one thing you can't trade for your heart's desire is your heart."

"When you choose an action, you choose the consequences of that action. When you desire a consequence you had damned well better take the action that would create it."

"I've always thought tests are a gift. And great tests are a great gift. To fail the test is a misfortune. But to refuse the test is to refuse the gift, and something worse, more irrevocable, than misfortune."
