“But I’m Pharaoh,” Neter-Khet said. “I’m supposed to give orders.” “That doesn’t mean anything to a cat,” said Jason. “Didn’t anybody ever tell you? “Nobody tells me,” Neter-Khet said. “I tell them. Besides, they were my cats, weren’t they?” “In a way they were,” Jason said, “and in a way they weren’t. A cat can belong to you, but you can’t own him. There’s a difference.”Chapter 3 “Neter-Khet” p. 20 .
“Didn’t you ever see a cat before?” “Of course I did,” said the boy. “Hundreds of them. But just because you’ve seen something, it doesn’t mean you stop looking. There’s always something you didn’t see before.”Chapter 10 “Odranoel” pp. 100-101 .

For the deeds of a man, not the words of a prophecy, are what shape his destiny.”Chapter 21 .

Once,” he added, “you told me that the seeking counts more than the finding. So, too, must the striving count more than the gain. “Once, I hoped for a glorious destiny,” Taran went on, smiling at his own memory. “That dream has vanished with my childhood; and though a pleasant dream it was fit only for a child. I am well content as an Assistant Pig-Keeper.”Chapter 21 .
