Default New Favorite Dragon Quote :)

Just read an opinion article today that was in the Shelbyville Times-Gazette (I made a google alert in case of Anne McCaffrey and dragon news), and I think this is my new favorite quote.

Quote:
The horses will always be here, but life only gives you a few chances to ride dragons.
Here's the link to the original article:
http://www.t-g.com/story/1747580.html

Do you all have any favorite dragon quotes?

Probably have some in Terry Pratchett's books, but they are downstairs and I'm too lazy to look them up.

I read the article, and I suspect that this author actually would get along VERY well, with Anne. And yes, I, too, love the quote! This writer is very good!!
*curtsy* That's my two cents' worth!

I've used a trap full of tunnle snakes, and the tunnles they make.

A quote from a dragon that I really like:

"Our kind have shed rivers of blood, matched against each other. I would have the flow stopped. Shall it always be thus, one family slaughtering another, until the end of time?"

--Wistala (from E.E. Knight's Dragon Avenger)
