Quote by R.A. Salvatore
The gods of the realms are many and varied -- or they are the many and varied names and identities tagged onto the same being. I know not -- and care not -- which.
This quote suggests that the speaker is indifferent towards the different names and identities attributed to gods in various realms. They acknowledge the existence of multiple gods but do not concern themselves with the specifics. The quote implies that the speaker's focus is not on distinguishing between different gods or their identities, but rather on their own beliefs or lack thereof in these beings.
Terrorism is a biological consequence of the multinationals, just as a day of fever is the reasonable price of an effective vaccine . . . The conflict is between great powers, not between demons and heroes. Unhappily, therefore, is the nation that finds the heroes underfoot, especially if they still think in religious terms and involve the population in their bloody ascent to an uninhabited paradise.
