Popular Quotes

“Sometimes love tries to do too much.”
Charles Todd, A Bitter Truth

 “Now he realized that somehow those who had served in France and elsewhere knew a world that couldn’t be shared. How could he tell his sister—or even his father, if the elder Rutledge was still alive—what had been done on bloody ground far from home? It would be criminal to fill their minds with scenes that no one should have to remember. No one.”
― Charles Todd, A False Mirror

“There’s a beauty in birds on the wing,
That stirs the heart and makes earthbound creatures
Long for flight, but the larks above the battlefield
Are silenced by the sounds of war.
I have watched birds out at sea,
Catching the wind,
And longed to follow them,
To some safe place far from here.”
― Charles Todd, A Long Shadow

 “I decided to become a policeman to speak for the dead. They have no one else, you see. Somewhere there’s always proof of what happened, some piece of evidence that will obtain a conviction. It’s important for the guilty to be brought to justice, I think. Without justice, there’s chaos.”
― Charles Todd, A Long Shadow

 “But what kind of love? It had so many faces, so many names. Jealousy wove a thread around it, and envy, and fear. People died for love–and killed for it. And yet in itself it was indefinable, it wore whatever passions people brought to it, like a mountebank, with no reality of its own.”
― Charles Todd, Search the Dark

 “Courage is not measured by
Marching bands and banners in the wind.
If you have not walked
The bloody lines and seen the faces,
You have no right to describe it so.
We die here to keep you safe at home,
And what we suffer
Pray you may never know.”
― Charles Todd, A False Mirror

“Children were quick to grasp the subtleties of emotions around them, to see through evasions and quickly identify prevarication.”
― Charles Todd, A Long Shadow

 “That’s the point of working with one’s hands, you see. It gives the mind something else to do besides worry.”
― Charles Todd, A Duty to the Dead

“There’s a narrow line between love and hate sometimes, you know. And it can be crossed unwittingly.”
― Charles Todd, Watchers of Time

“Revenge was personal as a rule. Otherwise it was pointless.”
― Charles Todd, A Long Shadow

One Final Bonus – Charles Todd Quote 

“Tell me something. Why is everyone so determined to believe Wilton is innocent?”

Surprised, Davies said, “He’s a war hero isn’t he? Admired by the King and a friend of the Prince of Wales. He’s visited Sandringham, been received by Queen Mary herself! A man like that doesn’t go around killing people!”

With a wry downturn of his lips, Rutledge silently asked, How did he win his medals, you fool, if not by being so very damned good at killing?”

― Charles Todd, A Test of Wills
