At All Costs
Regarding the RMN's thinking that they can take the system and the RHN's forces thinking they're wrong.
"We think they are, Ewan," Giovanni corrected. "Although, if they've got the sense God gave a Legislaturalist, at least they'll stay out of our inner-system missile envelope!"

I like Web DuHavel's description of the young Cathy Montaigne as one of "... the chic downtrodden of the day, who couldn't bake a loaf of bread without romanticizing the distress of the flour and the noble savage qualities of the yeast."

There's a line in Shadow of Saganami about the super you beaut military coms being able to detect line taps.
