->'''William Of Baskerville:''' You see already that in both cases, [[PointyHairedBoss our abbot]] is concerned for the good name of his monastery. Murderer or next victim as he may be, [[SlaveToPR he does not want defamatory news about this holy community to travel beyond these mountains]]. Kill his monks but do not touch the honor of his abbey. Ah by... ''[growing angry]'' That bastard of a feudal lord, [[SmallNameBigEgo that peacock who gained fame for having been the Aquinas's gravedigger]], that inflated wineskin who exists only because he wears [[CompensatingForSomething a ring as big as the bottom of a glass!]] Proud, proud, all of you Cluniacs, worse than princes, more baronial than barons!
->'''Adso Of Melk:''' [[ImStandingRightHere Master...]]
->'''William Of Baskerville:''' You be quiet, you are made of the same stuff. Your band are not simple men or sons of the simple. If a peasant comes along, you may receive him, but as I saw yesterday, you do not hesitate to hand him over to the secular arm. [[CorruptChurch But not one of your own, no; he must be shielded]]. Abo is capable of identifying the wretch, stabbing him in the treasure crypt and passing out his kidneys among the reliquaries, provided the honor of the abbey is saved. Have a Franciscan, a plebeian Minorite, discover the rat's nest of this holy house? Ah, no, that is something Abo cannot allow at any price. "Thank you, Brother William, the Emperor needs you, [[ConspicuousConsumption you see what a beautiful ring I have]], goodbye."

->The Lasombra are not stewards, for they do not hold [[RegentForLife power on behalf of another]], nor are the Lasombra kings, for they accept no restraints on their power in the form of any human or [[DivineRightOfKings divine sanction]]. The Lasombra are simply the [[SmallNameBigEgo rightful masters of everything in heaven or earth]], whether their subjects accept the fact yet or not.

->I assume you await confessions. Lists of names, perhaps, of those who joined me on my moonlit revels? Of those [[CorruptChurch whose properties you can add to your church's rolls]]? Of those whose unholy suggestions singed my ears to brimstone promises and tempted me, like some quivering virgin, to spread my soul like a harlot's legs and let the Devil in? I'm afraid you will be disappointed, [[SarcasmMode my kind and dour keepers]]. If you expect a testament of denunciations, you must look to other men. I, you see, am far to proud of my depredations to share credit with the innocent. Pride may be a sin, but it is most delicious on one's tongue.

->[[FamilyBusiness The Kings]] are, by all appearances, [[Fiction500 an extremely successful]], [[BigScrewedUpFamily tight-knit family]]. They're not Black Spiral Kinfolk; indeed, most are rather attractive in a bland, Middle-American sort of way. They've got money, authority, political power and free beer whenever they want it. Why throw in with [[EvilInc Pentex?]]
-> The answer is simple: Arrogance. The Kings look around and see everything the way they want it to be... within limits. Outside those limits, things aren't so rosy. The Kings can't do anything about Anheuser-Busch, though they'd love to, and that boils their blood. They're the Kings, dammit, and the fact that the world stubbornly refused to conform to their wishes is a continuing canker in their happiness. Throwing their lot with Pentex ensures that if the program for domination succeeds, the Kings get the last laugh on their rivals. And once the liquor industry is under their thumb, what's to keep them from expanding their horizons?

-> I was going to teach you a lesson, but instead, it is you who have taught me. You see, when I was young... [[WhamLine I was EMPEROR]]. The realm you see all around you was mine to command. I conquered my doubts, my fears, my anger... I buried all of it within the land. But I held on to one vice. The one [[EldritchAbomination sha]] I never conquered. PRIDE. My pride cloaked this land in mists! I thought we were better than the rest of the world. I thought we could solve our own problems. But for ten thousand years, we stagnated, our doubts and fears buried in the land, rising up to fester whenever we allowed them. Pride. It is the most insidious of sha. It is good until it is bad. And then it is more dangerous than all the others combined. Beware of Pride! Be humble! The world is plunging into chaos. Old enemies must work together. Proud races must admit they need help. Things are going to get worse before they get better. Only by working together can we overcome the darkness. All that stands in our way... is pride.

->''"I do not dance to the [[FallenAngel Fallen's]] tune, Knight. We may move together, but I play the music. I set the beat. For nearly two thousand years I followed my path, through every treacherous bend and twist, through every temptation to turn aside, and after centuries of effort and study and planning and victory, they follow my leadership. Not the other way around. Turn aside from my path? I have blazed it through ages of humanity, through centuries of war and plague and madness and havoc and devotion. I am my path and it is me. There is no turning aside."''
