A. The king has given me splendid gifts. He will see tonight that his gifts have not gone for nothing! Prepare to fall, foul thing! (83)
B. And the joy of self-knowledge, that's a great compensation! The easy and absolute certainty that whatever the danger, however terrible the odds, you'll stand firm. (85)
C. No man above us will ever know whether Unferth died here or fled to the hills like a coward. Only you and I and God will know the truth. That's inner heroism. (88)
D. [The warrior's] mouth, which moved — or so it seemed to me — independent of the words, as if the body of the stranger were a ruse, a disguise for something infinitely more terrible. (155)
