"Your skills are a gift of the Omnissiah. Create nothing with your hands and mind that you do not believe to be useful. Or beautiful. Or lethal."
— Reverend Fabricator Ghanak, Warhammer 40,000
"People say I'm making gold off of other people's misery, but what else would I do? Smithing is all I know. Next time one of my shields deflects a killing blow, they'll change their tune."
— Balimund, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
