““"The Byzantines never took part in Crusades. They lived in relative harmony, competing in trade with everyone around them. It was the ideal soil for the growth of a vibrant culture. This cast the stagnant Catholic west further into the dark. The Dark Ages were dark, because they lived in the Byzantine shadow, its light revealing their faults."”s”Kostadino Paleologos, The Last Truth & Last Descendant of Byzantine Emperors: Chapter 1 - Monaxia
““Oh, those clever, clever Greeks.” The smile, cleaving his face, was malignant, a gash that looked as though it would explode in a torrent of gore. He wasn’t pleased to be exposed; the grin belied any compliments that slithered past his tongue. His stare punctured Kosta’s imagination, as he saw this little man rending him limb from limb, ripping his skin from his body. He shook off the vision, taking a step backward as it slithered forward.”Georios Plethon, Imperial Byzantine Tutor: Chapter 2 - Triumph of Xos
“The danger was latent, rolled up in parchment, bound in velum or forgotten pelt. The dark, itself, or the reading of these words, freed them, allowing them to coalesce into their most vicious possibilities. Their danger lay in their essence, what they were – lies. Lies were valuable. The best lies were able to stand the test of time and weren’t measured in black and white, fact and fiction. Rather, they became society, respected thought, accepted dogma. If enough people believe these lies long enough and hard enough, they will them to become fact. The belief of these lies transmuted them over centuries into truths, for which faithful millions had killed and been killed.”Description of shelves & passages in the Lost Library of Alexandria: Chapter 3 - Dangerous Words
““Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do.” Who does? Why does the voice seek this God, this treacherous Father, who allows this to be done to His son? For a few breaths, I am angry at the criminal violation, which this begged-for parent shows to all his children. Why do we look to Him for this withheld comfort and support? My outrage continues and, in my death, it follows me to the void. In the nothing I now face, I am alone with my belief that no help shall ever be given, though it be earned a thousand times. I am on my own, to grow strong or be annihilated.”Unnamed Crucified Man, Golgotha: Chapter 4 - Zealots
