The creations of a great writer are little more than the moods and passions of his own heart, given surnames and Christian names, and sent to walk the earth.

William Butler Yeats

My name is Kvothe, pronounced nearly the same as "quothe." Names are important as they tell you a great deal about a person. I've had more names than anyone has a right to. The Adem call me Maedre. Which, depending on how it's spoken, can mean The Flame, The Thunder, or The Broken Tree. "The Flame" is obvious if you've ever seen me. I have red hair, bright. If I had been born a couple of hundred years ago I would probably have been burned as a demon. I keep it short but it's unruly. When left to its own devices, it sticks up and makes me look as if I have been set afire. "The Thunder" I attribute to a strong baritone and a great deal of stage training at an early age. I've never thought of "The Broken Tree" as very significant. Although in retrospect, I suppose it could be considered at least partially prophetic. My first mentor called me E'lir because I was clever and I knew it. My first real lover called me Dulator because she liked the sound of it. I have been called Shadicar, Lightfinger, and Six-String. I have been called Kvothe the Bloodless, Kvothe the Arcane, and Kvothe Kingkiller. I have earned those names. Bought and paid for them. But I was brought up as Kvothe. My father once told me it meant "to know." I have, of course, been called many other things. Most of them uncouth, although very few were unearned. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. You may have heard of me.

So what's your team called?" asked Kate, twisting her legs into a pretzel-like configuration, "We're called the Winmates because we're inmates who win." Kate looked back and forth at Reynie and Constance, searching their expression for signs of delight. "You gave yourselves a name?" asked Constance. Now it was Kate's turn to be baffled. "You didn't? How can you have a team without a name?

It’s funny, Matt, everyone thinks Roman’s a nickname--but it’s not, it's just my name. We've got military names way back in our clan. I've got Great-Granddad Grant and Great Uncle Sherman and Uncle MacArthur and Cousin Audie and Cousin Achilles. No," he mused, "Roman's not a nickname. A nickname would be–oh, I don’t know, something like ... Caesar or something! The mighty Roman! ~ Roman Meister, nickname-loving manager of the San Carlos Coyotes in The Mighty Roman, broadly hinting for a nickname of his own.

Ladies and Gentlemen! Silence please!" Every one was startled. They looked round-at each other, at the walls. Who was speaking? The Voice went on- a high clear voice. You are charged with the following indictments: Edward George Armstrong, that you did upon the 14th day of March, 1925, cause the death of Louisa Mary Clees. Emily Caroline Brent, that upon the 5th November, 1931, you were responsible for the death of Beatrice Taylor. William Henry Blore, that you brought about the death of James Stephen Landor on October 10th, 1928. Vera Elizabeth Claythorne, that on the 11th day of August, 1935, you killed Cyril Ogilvie Hamilton. Philip Lombard, that upon a date in February, 1932, you were guilty of the death of twenty-one men, members of an East African tribe. John Gordon Macarthur, that on the 4th of January, 1917, you deliberately sent your wife's lover, Arthur Richmond, to his death. Anthony James Marston, that upon the 14th day of November last, you were guilty of murder of John and Lucy Combes. Thomas Rogers and Ethel Rogers, that on the 6th of May, 1929, you brought about the death of Jennifer Brady. Lawrence John Wargrave, that upon the 10th day of June, 1930, you were guilty of the murder of Edward Seton. Prisoners at the bar, have you anything to say in your defense?

I let that swim around in my aching head for a few minutes - "the arsenal of megadeath...the arsenal of megadeath" - and then, for some reason I can't quite explain, I began to write. Using a borrowed pencil and a cupcake wrapper, I wrote the first lyrics of my post-Metallica life. This song was called "Megadeth" (I dropped the second "a"), and though it would never find its way onto an album, it did serve as the basis for the song "Set the World Afire." It hadn't occured to me then that Megadeth-as used by Senator Cranston, megadeath referred to the loss of one million lives as a result of nuclear holocaust-might be a perfectly awesome name for a thrash metal band.

My grandfather would have loved to have met you," he told her huskily. "He would have called you 'She Moves Trees Out of His Path.' " She looked lost, but his da laughed. He'd known the old man, too. "He called me 'He Who Must Run into Trees,'" Charles explained, and in a spirit of honesty, a need for his mate to know who he was, he continued, "or sometimes 'Running Eagle.' " " 'Running Eagle'?" Anna puzzled it over, frowning at him. "What's wrong with that?" "Too stupid to fly," murmured his father with a little smile.

Khi ta mỉm cười và nói – không sao là riêng mình ta biết đang đau xé lòng chứ không ít Khi ai đó khuyên ta cố gắng sống đi đừng mỏi mệt ta chỉ biết lắc đầu – giá như là trẻ con… Trong suốt cuộc đời ta nhiều lần đã nhìn thấy những vết thương những giọt nước mắt rơi không thành tiếng những lần gượng cười mà nỗi đau nổi lên theo từng đường gân thớ thịt những người sống mà không hề biết rằng mình đã chết mãi đến tận cuối đời… Từ lúc nào đó ta không còn ước mong gì nữa khi ngước nhìn bầu trời tự mình xoa tay để cho mình hơi ấm xếp lại những cuối tuần vào một chiếc hộp rồi buộc lên nó những ánh nhìn vô cảm biết đến bao giờ mới mở ra? Khi ta mỉm cười và nói – có gì đâu phải xót xa? là riêng mình ta biết bờ môi đang lem đầy đắng chát Khi ai đó choàng người ta bằng một cái ôm thật chặt ta không hề muốn đánh rơi hơi ấm kia chút nào ! Giá như có thể trả lại được con đường mà ta từng bước đi bên cạnh nhau trả lại những dỗi hờn vào thời gian chờ đợi trả lại những nghi ngờ vào một câu hỏi trả lại bàn tay cho bàn tay, bờ vai cho bờ vai và con người cho con người lần đầu tập nói dối ta có thật lòng yêu? Cuộc đời giành giật từng ngày nắng và tặng cho ta hết những đêm thâu thêm giấc ngủ khóa cửa bỏ trái tim tự co ro ngoài hiên vắng ta đã đi hết mùa đông mà vẫn tin rằng mùa đông chưa bao giờ về đến lầm lũi như một người nhìn thấy cuối đường là ánh lửa mà cứ lo vụt tắt ta kiệt sức vì lo toan… Khi ta mỉm cười và nói – cảm ơn là riêng mình ta biết không chút nào muốn thế Khi ai đó bày cho ta cách xóa đi một phần trí nhớ sao ta không chọn lựa để quên? Nếu bão tố có thật sự đi qua cuộc đời này chỉ trong một đêm chẳng phải khoảnh khắc bình minh trong suy nghĩ của ta là đẹp nhất? Nếu bão tố có thật sự đi qua cuộc đời này chỉ trong một giây phút chẳng phải những gì ta cần chỉ là được xiết tay nhau? Khi ta mỉm cười và nói – thật sự rất đau là riêng mình ta biết ta cần bắt đầu lại… ” - Khi ta mỉm cười và nói...
