    Hmmm.. Personal favourites would have to be;

    'Evil prevails when good men fail to act.'

    'I am Druss. To face me is to die.'

    or, more commercially, Bardan and Druss'

    'BLOOD AND DEATH!'

    I like this Shannow one cause its so simple but says alot :)

    "What is your name?"
    "Why?"
    "So I can mark your grave..."

    - Shannow

    I use it as my signature in Legendreaders, the Gemmell forums.

    Legendreaders is only for Gemmell. Everyone there is a hardcore DG fan.

    Its not like this where DG gets a small forum branch for him.

    Check it out. It has great avatar size pics, many qoutes etc in the main page.

    This appears in some way or another in most DG's novels. But it's usually

    "If it can bleed, I can kill it"

    Works best when Antikas Karios is asking about the Krayakin(sp?)

    Too many to mention in one post but the one that has always really stood out for me was in Legend, when Druss says of what will be written on his own gravestone,

    "Here lies Druss. He killed many and birthed none."

    And then Rek's woman (can't remember her name) gives that speech,

    "They will say more than that. They will say: Here lies druss, who was never mean, petty or needlessly cruel. Who never violated a woman nor harmed a child. They will say, he had no sons, but many a mother with babes slept safer knowing that Druss stood with the Drenai..."

    Good speech that.

    This is one of my favourite quotes from White Wolf that I've never see anyone else mention. Decado Firefist said this to Skilgannon.

    "We are what we are my boy, and wolves is what we are..."
