"I think it is better to build than it is to destroy." "Even though one's work may fall into ruin?" "Yes, even though one's work may fall into ruin." (Explorers of Gor, p.448)
"There is no single humanity, no single shirt, no correct pair of shoes, no uniform, even a gray one, that will fit all men. There are a thousand humanities possible. He who denies this sees only his own horizons. He who disagrees is the denier of difference, and the murderer of the better futures." (Savages of Gor, p.31)
"A civilization, you see, need not inevitably be a conflict with nature. A rational, informed civilization can even, in a sense, refine and improve upon nature; it can, so to speak, bring nature to fruition. Indeed, a natural civilization might be the natural flowering of nature itself, not an antithesis to nature, not a contradiction to nature, not a poison nor a trammel to it, but a stage or aspect of it, a form which nature itself can take." (Savages of Gor, p.194)
"Ritual is important. It is fulfilling, and meaningful. It is beautiful. It is symbolic, mnemonic and instructive. It establishes protocols. It expresses, defines and clarifies conditions. It is essential to, and ingredient within, civilization." (Vagabonds of Gor, p.213)
"More broadly, order and structure in human life, stability in society, even, in a sense, civilization itself, depends on sanctions. A civilization must be willing to impose sanctions, and to impose them reliably and efficiently. A lapse in such resolve and practice is a symptom of decline, even of impending disintegration. Ultimately civilization depends upon power, moral and physical, upon, so to speak, the will of masters and the reality of the whip and sword." (Magicians of Gor, p.124)
"There are no mere points of honor." (Vagabonds of Gor, p.63)
"A Ubar need give no accounting, no explanation." (Raiders of Gor, p.95)
"Economic power and political power are like the left and the right foot. To truly move, to truly climb, one must have both." (Hunters of Gor, p.172)
"It is pleasant to have one's enemies in one's power." (Savages of Gor, p.167)
"It is seldom wise, incidentally, to impugn, or attempt to manipulate, the honor of a Gorean." Mercenaries of Gor - Page 297
"Beware the sleen that seems to sleep." (Guardsman of Gor, p.50)
"You may judge and scorn the Goreans if you wish. Know as well, however, that they judge and scorn you. They fulfill themselves as you do not. Hate them for their pride and power. They will pity you for your shame and weakness." (Beasts of Gor, p.11)
"It is fortunate that some arrangement exists for the men of the Tahari, like Goreans in general, are extremely proud, high strung, easily offended men, with a sense of honor that is highly touchy. Furthermore, enjoying war, they need very little to send hem to their saddles with their scimitars loose in their sheaths. A rumor of an insult or outrage, not inquired closely into, perhaps by intent, will suffice. A good fight, I have heard men of the Tahari say, licking their lips, justify any cause." (Tribesmen of Gor, pg. 177)
