“Do you suppose the value of a single arrow to be small? How much is your mother worth? Your brother? The little stable boy you fancy so much? Is it truly absurd to ask how to measure the worth of a living soul? I tell you this: it is measured by the number of arrows it takes to hew them down. So again, I ask: Do you suppose the value of an arrow to be small? — Pahrn of House Agath, Master Instructor to the Greymarks”
