A Quote by Terry Goodkind on friendship and diversity

Being a friend is to like a person for who they are, even the parts you don't understand.  The reasons you like them makes the things you don't understand unimportant.  You don't have to understand, or do the same, or live their lives for them.  If you truly care for them, then you want them to be who they are; that was why you liked them in the first place.

A Quote by Terry Goodkind on worst thing possible, consequences, and inaction

When Kahlan first told me about the history of the three lands, she said the council had taken actions that had made the death of a wizard's wife and daughter at the hands of a quad stand for nothing, and as punishment the wizard did the worst thing possible to them: he left them to suffer the cosequences of their own actions.

A Quote by Terry Goodkind on magic and trick

   "Sometimes if a trick is done properly, it can be better than magic.  In fact, I would go so far as to say a good trick is real magic."
   "But still, it was just a trick."
   The wizard held up a finger, "Results, Richard.  That's what counts.  Your way, those men would have all lost their heads."
