Great Quote!

Once in a while the Battletech/Mechwarrior series produces a quote that is well... absolutely outstanding. The latest one is from "The Last Charge", and is uttered by quasi-villain Alaric Wolf:
"This is war. I assumed everyone was here to fight."

That book also featured the longest rant ever in the entire Battletech universe, which lasted for more than a page! And it was a meaningful rant, which makes it very ironic, coming from Anson Marik, who was exactly the kind of person he was ranting against.

On another note, I finally got around to reading Ender's Game, and I can see why it was so heralded for its time. It dealt with moral and psychological issues, as well as deception and choices. I won't give anything away, but the ending, when Ender starts coming to terms with what he'd done and becomes the first Speaker for the Dead, is especially poignant.
