Quotes Andrzej Sapkowski

„People like to invent monsters and monstrosities. Then they seem less monstrous themselves.“

—  Andrzej Sapkowski, book The Last Wish

Geralt
Source: The Last Wish (1993)
Context: “People," Geralt turned his head, "like to invent monsters and monstrosities. Then they seem less monstrous themselves. When they get blind-drunk, cheat, steal, beat their wives, starve an old woman, when they kill a trapped fox with an axe or riddle the last existing unicorn with arrows, they like to think that the Bane entering cottages at daybreak is more monstrous than they are. They feel better then. They find it easier to live.”

„During his life, the witcher had met thieves who looked like town councillors, councillors who looked like beggars, harlots who looked like princesses, princesses who looked like calving cows, and kings who looked like thieves.“

—  Andrzej Sapkowski, book The Last Wish

Wiedźmin spotykał w życiu złodziei wyglądających jak rajcy miejscy, rajców wyglądających jak proszalne dziady, nierządnice wyglądające jak królewny, królewny wyglądające jak cielne krowy i królów wyglądających jak złodzieje. (pl.)
