Found Philosophy

The advantage to reading books is that you find that single phrase which perfectly encapsulates something you were already thinking but couldn't quite express.
Choice is the singular moral act and all one chooses can only be considered in a moral context if that choice is free.
Of course, I don't usually expect such a nice summation of the morality of choice from a sentient lizard soldier in a fantasy novel, but you take what you find.

I also note one of the three great doorstop fantasy epics is drawing to a close with this book. One more, and Erikson is done with the Malazan Book of the Fallen. That leaves Jordan's successor to finish up the Wheel of Time and George R.R. Martin to finish up before he kicks off.
