Lord Foul's Bane by Stephen R. Donaldson

  • Foamfollower's question caught him wandering. "Are you a storyteller, Thomas Covenant?"
    • Foamfollower and Thomas Covenant, Lord Foul's Bane , the first book of The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever
  • When last comes to last,I have little power:

    I am merely an urn. I hold the bone-sap of myself,

    and watch the marrow burn.

    When last comes to last,

    I have little strength:

    I am only a tool. I work its work; and in its hands

    I am the fool.

    When last comes to last,

    I have little life.

    I am simply a deed: an action done while courage holds:

    a seed.
