Kronn’s Quotes

Bridges of Time

Spirit of the Wind

“‘Merldon Metwinger says his daughter married Uncle Trapspringer.’

‘It’s distinctly possible, Kronn said. ‘Uncle Trapspringer is quite a catch, and I know for a fact that he’s been married seven or nine times.'” (8)

“‘Remember when you were young, how he used to put salamanders in her boots?’ Kronin asked wistfully.

‘Of coarse I do.’ Kronn grinned wryly. ‘It was my idea'” (18)

“‘Kronn?’ Kronin asked, ‘What’s wrong?’

‘Uh,’ he said, ‘have you noticed, there’s an absolutely enormous dragon out there?’

‘Really?'” (19)

“Kronn frowned thoughtfully. ‘I hope this doesn’t have anything to do with that misunderstanding last night. I thought I explained that it wasn’t my fault those sacred talismans ended up in my pouch. If they’d taken them down when the storm started, they wouldn’t have been blowing around like crazy, and I wouldn’t have had to keep them safe. They should thank me, actually.'” (77)

“The older kender ((Catt)) had pitched in with the sailors from the start… Which is the main reason they hadn’t yet killed Kronn.”

“Catt nodded. ‘So what’s our plan?’

‘Plan?’ said Kronn. ‘The plan is to rescue them.’

Catt made a face. ‘And how do you think we’re going to manage that?’

‘I’m working on that part.'” (120)

((After Riverwind’s flute ended up in Kronn’s pouch)) “‘All my life, through Darkness and light,’ he ((Riverwind)) said, ‘I have kept this flute. I took it with me on my courting quest and carried it to war. I played it that night in Solace, when I met Tanis and Caramon and the others. And-it is the only thing I have left to remind me of my grandfather. Even his face is no longer clear in my memory, but I can still see his hands as he guided my fingers over the holes.’

The kender nodded solemnly. ‘I’m surprised you’re so careless with it, if it’s so important.'” (145)

“‘You brought humans with you!’

‘Of coarse I did,’ Kronn answered. ‘That’s what Pax sent us to do.’

‘But I never thought you’d actually find someone who was willing to come or find your way back through the army of ogres.’ (188)

“The next day, Catt Thistleknot woke with a headache the likes of which she had never felt before. ‘I wish I were dead,’ she moaned thickly.

‘Good morning to you, too,” said Kronn.” (200)

“‘Look, Riverwind’ Kronn had explained. ‘The dwarves have a saying about us-well, they have lots of sayings about us, and frankly I find most of them pretty offensive. But this one’s true. ‘There’s nothing worse than a bored kender.'” (256)

“Kronn watched him, craning his neck curiously, then caught his breath when the plainsman produced his worn, bonewood flute.

‘I want you to have this,’ Riverwind said.

Kronn stared at it, his mouth agape. ‘I can’t take that.’

The old plainsman laughed suddenly, eyes sparkling. ‘That’s something I never thought I’d hear a kender say,’ he said.” (332)
