There was someone in his little attic room. Geralt knew it before he even reached the door, sensing it through the barely perceptible vibration of his medallion. He blew out the oil lamp which had lit his path up the stairs, pulled the dagger from his boot, slipped it into the back of his belt and pressed the door handle. The room was dark. But not for a witcher. He was deliberately slow in crossing the threshold; he closed the door behind him carefully. The next second he dived at the person sitting on his bed, crushed them into the linen, forced his forearm under their chin and reached for his dagger. He didn't pull it out. Something wasn't right. "Not a bad start," she said in a muffled voice, lying motionless beneath him. "I expected something like this, but I didn't think we'd both be in bed so quickly. Take your hand from my throat please." "It'sAndrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: There was someone in his little attic room. Geralt knew it before he even reached
And so it's an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth? Blood for blood? And for that blood, more blood? A sea of blood? Do you want to drown the world in blood? O naive, damaged girl! Is that how you mean to fight evil, little witcher?Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: And so it's an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth? Blood for
Don't mention it,' the sorcerer patted the neck of his horse, which had been scared by all the yelling from Yarpen and his dwarves. 'To me, Witcher, calling killing a vocation is loathsome, low and nonsensical. Our world is in equilibrium. The annihilation, the killing, of any creatures that inhabit this world upsets that equilibrium. And a lack of equilibrium brings closer extinction; extinction and the end of the world as we know it.' 'A druidic theory,' Geralt pronounced. 'I know it. An old hierophant expounded it to me once, back in Rivia. Two days after our conversation he was torn apart by wererats. It was impossible to prove any upset in equilibrium.Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: Don't mention it,' the sorcerer patted the neck of his horse, which had been scared
It's an invention, a fairy tale devoid of any sense, like all the legends in which good spirits and fortune tellers fulfill wishes. Stories like that are made up by poor simpletons, who can't even dream of fulfilling their wishes and desires themselves. I'm pleased you're not one of them, Geralt of Rivia. It makes you closer in spirit to me. If I want something, I don't dream of it - I act. And I always get what I want.Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: It's an invention, a fairy tale devoid of any sense, like all the legends in
The witcher smiled faintly but quite nastily. "If I understand correctly," he said, "I'm to fight the duel because, if I refuse, I'll be hanged. If I fight, I'm to allow my opponent to injure me because if I wound him, I'll be put to the rack. What charming alternatives. Maybe I should save you the bother? I'll thump my head against the pine tree and render myself helpless. Will that grant you satisfaction?" "Don'tAndrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: The witcher smiled faintly but quite nastily. "If I understand correctly," he said, "I'm to
Caldemeyn waddled on the spot and looked at Geralt. The witcher shrugged. Carrypebble picked his nose with serious concentration.Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: Caldemeyn waddled on the spot and looked at Geralt. The witcher shrugged. Carrypebble picked his
The world doesn't need a hero, it needs a professional.CD Projekt Red The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By CD Projekt Red: The world doesn't need a hero, it needs a professional.
I shall tell you. I've heard that it has recently become tiresome to negotiate with you witchers. The thing is that, whenever a witcher is shown a monster to be killed, the witcher, rather than take his sword and slaughter it, begins to ponder whether it is right, whether it is transgressing the limits of what is possible, whether it is not contrary to the code and whether the monster really is a monster, as though it wasn't clear at first glance. It seems to me that you are simply doing too well. In my day, witchers didn't have two pennies to rub togetherAndrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: I shall tell you. I've heard that it has recently become tiresome to negotiate with
Then the prophetess said to the witcher: "I shall give you this advice: wear boots made of iron, take
in hand a staff of steel. Then walk until the end of the world. Help yourself with your staff to break the land before you and wet it with your tears. Go through fire and water, do not stop along the way,
do not look behind you. And when the boots are worn, when your staff is blunt, once the wind and the heat has dried your eyes so that your tears no longer flow, then at the end of the world you may
find what you are looking for and what you love...

The witcher went through fire and water, he did not look back. He did not take iron boots or a staff
of steel. He took only his sword. He did not listen to the words of prophets. And he did well because she was a bad prophet.
Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: Then the prophetess said to the witcher: "I shall give you this advice: wear boots
During his life, the witcher had met thieves who looked like town councilors, councilors who looked like beggars, harlots who looked like princesses, princesses who looked like calving cows and kings who looked like thieves. But Stregobor always looked as, according to every rule and notion, a wizard should look. He was tall, thin and stooping, with enormous bushy gray eyebrows and a long, crooked nose. To top it off, he wore a black, trailing robe with improbably wide sleeves, and wielded a long staff capped with a crystal knob.Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: During his life, the witcher had met thieves who looked like town councilors, councilors who
And so,' smiled the Witcher, 'I have no choice? I have to enter into a pact with you, a pact which should someday become the subject of a painting, and become a sorcerer? Give me a break. I know a little about the theory of heredity. My father, as I discovered with no little difficulty, was a wanderer, a churl, a troublemaker and a swashbuckler. My genes on the spear side may be dominant over the genes on the distaff side. The fact that I can swash a buckler pretty well seems to confirm that.Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: And so,' smiled the Witcher, 'I have no choice? I have to enter into a
Everyone has some kind of debt. Such is life. Debts and liabilities, obligations, gratitude, payments, doing something for someone. Or perhaps for ourselves? For in fact we are always paying ourselves back and not someone else. Each time we are indebted we pay off the debt to ourselves. In each of us lies a creditor and a debtor at once and the art is for the reckoning to tally inside us. We enter the world as a minute part of the life we are given, and from then on we are ever paying off debts, To ourselves. For ourselves. In order for the final reckoning to tally.Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: Everyone has some kind of debt. Such is life. Debts and liabilities, obligations, gratitude, payments,
Elves are extremely long-lived -- the passing years are but a blink of an eye to them. What also sets them apart from us is the very narrow window during which they can procreate, and, as a natural consequence, their very low fertility. The Aen Seidhe believe this to be the main reason for their decline. As one of my elven friends put it, "Even though we fought like wolves, we lost to a race which fucks like rabbits.David Hodgson The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By David Hodgson: Elves are extremely long-lived -- the passing years are but a blink of an eye
So long, Geralt. Look after yourself." The witcher's smile was surly. "I prefer to look after others. It turns out better in the long run." FromAndrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: So long, Geralt. Look after yourself." The witcher's smile was surly. "I prefer to look
Whosoever sheds man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed. Genesis, 9:6 Verily, great self-righteousness and great blindness are needed to call the gore pouring from the scaffold justice.

Genesis, 9:6 Verily, great
You can't stop a soldier from being frightened but you can give him motivation to help him overcome that fear. I have no such motivation. I can't have. I'm a witcher: an artificially created mutant. I kill monsters for money. I defend children when their parents pay me to. If Nilfgaardian parents pay me, I'll defend Nilfgaardian children. And even if the world lies in ruin - which does not seem likely to me - I'll carry on killing monsters in the ruins of this world until some monster kills me. That is my fate, my reason, my life and my attitude to the world. And it is not what I chose. It was chosen for me.Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: You can't stop a soldier from being frightened but you can give him motivation to
Everywhere you are a stranger.' Finished Iskra with seeming carelessness, and quickly and unceremoniously placed a beret with turkey feathers on her head. 'An Outsider everywhere and always different. How shall we call you, little hawk?' Ciri looked into her eyes. 'Gvalch'ca.' The elf laughed. 'Once you start to speak, you speak in multiple languages, little hawk! Very good. You will carry the name from the Elder People, a name that you yourself have chosen. You will be called Falka.Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: Everywhere you are a stranger.' Finished Iskra with seeming carelessness, and quickly and unceremoniously placed
Last winter Prince Hrobarik, not being so gracious, tried to hire me to find a beauty who, sick of his vulgar advances, had fled the ball, losing a slipper. It was difficult to convince him that he needed a huntsman, and not a witcher.Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: Last winter Prince Hrobarik, not being so gracious, tried to hire me to find a
Duny," said Geralt seriously, "Calanthe, Pavetta. And you, righteous knight Tuirseach, future king of Cintra. In order to become a witcher, you have to be born in the shadow of destiny, and very few are born like that. That's why there are so few of us. We're growing old, dying, without anyone to pass our knowledge, our gifts, on to. We lack successors. And this world is full of Evil which waits for the day none of us are left." "Geralt," whispered Calanthe. "Yes, you're not wrong, queen. Duny! You will give me that which you already have but do not know. I'll return to Cintra in six years to see if destiny has been kind to me.Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: Duny," said Geralt seriously, "Calanthe, Pavetta. And you, righteous knight Tuirseach, future king of Cintra.
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.Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: People," Geralt turned his head, "like to invent monsters and monstrosities. Then they seem less
A baptism of fire, the Witcher thought, furiously striking and parrying blows. I was meant to pass through fire for Ciri. And I'm passing through fire in a battle which is of no interest to me at all. Which I don't understand in any way. The fire that was meant to purify me is just scorching my hair and face.Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: A baptism of fire, the Witcher thought, furiously striking and parrying blows. I was meant
Shut up, you brat," interrupted Geralt, smiling nastily "Halt your uncontrolled little tongue.

For him the points of the compass have no great importance. It's all the same to him which one he chooses, as long as he's not idle. That is truly a witcher's principium. The world is full of evil, so it's sufficient to stride ahead, and destroy the Evil encountered on the way, in that way rendering a service to Good. The rest takes care of itself. Being in motion is everything, the goal is nothing.Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: For him the points of the compass have no great importance. It's all the same
Sir Falwick," said Geralt, not ceasing to smile. "If he draws his sword, I'll take it from him and beat the snotty-nosed little brat's arse with the flat of his blade. And then I'll batter the door down with him.Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: Sir Falwick," said Geralt, not ceasing to smile. "If he draws his sword, I'll take
Only death can finish the fight, everything else only interrupts the fighting.Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: Only death can finish the fight, everything else only interrupts the fighting.
In time, the witchers' steel swords earned the name of "swords for men." A foul moniker, though not one conjured out of thin air. A good steel blade is indeed our first line of defense against mankind's hatred, stupidity, or greed. The world is full of those who would happily kill a witcher - out of resentment toward our trade, for fame, or simply to profit by snatching up our hard-earned coin. So the witchers, fully aware of the situation, never hesitated to relieve this world of the burden of dolts who were so thick headed as to threaten their lives. For that reason, in my day we called our steel swords "swords for fools." Unfortunately, seeing as how mendacious the two-faced scoundrels of bitches seem to rule this world, a great many fools have been apparently spared this selection process.Marcin Batylda The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Marcin Batylda: In time, the witchers' steel swords earned the name of "swords for men." A foul
Geralt . . . Listen to me - ' 'Listen to what?' shouted the Witcher, before his voice suddenly faltered. 'I can't leave - I can't just leave her to her fate. She's completely alone . . . She cannot be left alone, Dandelion. You'll never understand that. No one will ever understand that, but I know. If she remains alone, the same thing will happen to her as once happened to me . . . You'll never understand that . .Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: Geralt . . . Listen to me - ' 'Listen to what?' shouted the Witcher,
I thought I was choosing the lesser evil. I chose the lesser evil. Lesser evil! I'm Geralt! Witcher ... I'm the Butcher of Blaviken - Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher 3 Best Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: I thought I was choosing the lesser evil. I chose the lesser evil. Lesser evil!
How do you find cohabiting with neighbors from whom, after all, you do differ somewhat?"
"I manage." The witcher looked him straight in the eyes, "I manage because I have to. Because I've no other way out. Because I've overcome the vanity and pride of being different. I've understood that they are a pitiful defense against being different. Because I've understood that the sun shines differently when something changes, but I'm not the axis of those changes. The sun shines differently, but it will continue to shine, and jumping at it with a hoe isn't going to do anything. We've got to accept facts, elf. That's what we've got to learn.
