"What are we supposed to do?" Kalten asked her.
"It's really quite simple, Kalten," Ulath said. "You watch Tynian very closely. As soon as he begins behaving like a butterfly, tell Sparhawk about it. I'll watch you for signs of froggishness.

"In all the time we've been travelling together, I haven't seen you cook more than once or twice."
"No, you probably haven't."
"When does your turn come?"

"Who appointed you?"
"I volunteered. Church Knights are supposed to do that when unpleasant tasks come up. That's one of the reasons people respect us so much."

"Beware, you Majesty," he warned her slyly as they neared the crest of a hillside sheathed in pale sprin grass so verdant that it almost looked like a filmy green mist. "The first sight of Mal Zeth has sometimes struck the unwary traveler blind. To be safe, why don't you cover one eye with your hand? That way you can preserve at least partial sight.

" I was reading an old text on the exploits of Belgarath the Sorcerer, and I -"
Senji stopped, going very pale, turned and gaped at Garion's grandfather.
"It's a terrible letdown, isn't it?" Beldin said. "We always told him he ought to look more impressive"
"You're in no position to talk," the old man said.
"You're the one with the earthshaking reputatiion." Beldin shrugged. "I'm just a flunky. I'm along for comic relief"
