"And dragons were just stories. And the elves once ruled Skyrim. Just because something is, doesn't mean it must be." — Eorlund Gray-Mane

-Tailin Sero, Assistant Librarian

“Wake Up. We're Here. Why are you shaking? Are you ok? Wake up. Stand up. There you go. You were dreaming. What's your name?” — Jiub

The 36 Lessons of Vivec contain a section where Vivec has to destroy eight monsters that he has unwittingly released upon the world. When he sets out to kill the last and mightiest monster, he takes along Nerevar, his friend and commander. The creature turns out to be an unassuming mortal who accepts death willingly. Nerevar is confused at this. Why would Vivec need his help if he knew the creature would not resist? The dialogue continues as follows:

Vivec said, 'I brought you here because I knew the mightiest of my issue would succumb to Muatra without argument, if only I gave him consolation first.'

Nerevar looked at Vivec for a long time.

Vivec understood. 'Say the words, Hortator.'

Nerevar said, 'Now I am the mightiest of your children.'

- Adanorcil, librarian 2006 - 2017

"The dunes of time are ever shifting. Kings rise and fall, cities are razed and rebuilt, alliances are forged and broken - but honor, glory... legend remains." — Throne Keeper Farvad

-Stygies VIII, Assistant Librarian since 2017

"If you must be stupid, at least be amusing." — Sotha Sil

"Amazing, the ability to infer significance in something devoid of detail!" — Vivec

- B

"We make a special trip just for you. Same low price." I heard that one about a thousand times over a one year period and something about it always sticks with me.

- Pilaf_The_Defiler, one-time Librarian and Balmora Bandit
