“Here lies Druss the Legend, who was never mean, petty, nor needlessly cruel. Here was a man who never gave in, never compromised his ideals, never betrayed a friend, never despoiled a woman and never used his strength against the weak. He had no sons, but many a woman asleep with her babes slept more soundly for knowing Druss stood with the Drenai.”
They’ll say many things, whitebeard. Through many generations they will say them, and men with no strength will find strength when they hear them.
David Gemmell, Legend
