"We were discussing the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. I'm not sure if this passage is made up or a quote from the books. Either way, it terrifies me."
This is the book series where the main character defeats Communism with the power of sculpture, right?
The Chisel of Truth was filled with rage. Not normal rage, the sort of rage someone might feel when they saw people protesting in the streets. Not the false rage of those who lacked moral clarity. But a true rage, which throbbed inside it crashing in waves over the white curves of the stone.
Richard struck with it, his own inner clarity meant that he needed no hammer to assist him, just like a real man needed no assistance from others to achieve his goals. The stone yielded under his firm and manful strokes. Again, and again, each chisel stroke deeper and more rageful. The stone protested, but Richard would never stop whatever the stone demanded. He was Richard Rahl, and he knew the truth of things. He knew that this stone needed to be cut, that it needed to be chiseled into the shape he demanded. The stone said no, but Richard knew that no meant yes.
"Chisel it harder!" he bellowed, as his chisel chiseled away the falsehoods of the stone and it's resistance turned to compliance. The stone didn't dare resist the truth of the chisel and the chiseller. Each blow was filled with truth, and the stone knew that despite the pain it felt now, it deserved such trials for daring to be a shape which advocated anything less that the moral clarity of Richard Rahl.
Your puny weapons are useless against me
