Favorite Five

So this weeks quotes are from Louis L'Amour.  I love Louis L'Amour's books.

  "This is very nice of you, Mr. Conagher, but I am afraid we can't pay---"
  "Didn't ask you to.  These here supplies were the wages of sin, ma'am, an' the woebegone sinners who pursued the path of Satan have seen the error of their ways.  You take that grub and be glad."
  He drew a six-shooter from the sack.  "You keep this, too, you might have use for it."
  "What happened, Mr. Conagher?"
  "Nothing to speak of.  Those sinners came upon evil times, but if they're wise they are headed east now, and makin' good time."

  He was seated by the window when he saw Quince and Saul ride in, and a few minutes later Dan Cooper and Cain Brockman.
  Brockman went to the Palace and apparently had a drink, then came out and began to loaf on the porch.  There was a bench there, and he sat down and lit a cigar.
  Kilkenny swore softly to himself.  Nita looked up.
  "Whats the matter?"
  "That lot...they think I need protection."
                                                                                   ~Mountain Valley War by Louis L'Amour

  There was coffee on a fire, and bacon frying, and then a voice spoke.
  "Stand where you are, señor, or I shall put a bullet where your breakfast is."
  My hands lifted cautiously.  There was no mistaking the ominous click of the cocking gun...but the voice was a woman's voice.
                                                                                   ~Killoe by Louis L'Amour

  "In Ireland we have heard of Southern gentlemen," Cris spoke carefully, "and it is a fine thing to be one, sir.  I envy you."
                                                                                   ~The Man from Skibbereen by Louis L'Amour

  "Like you said, the War's over and he's not a Johnny Reb any longer.  But I've a better reason.  He's my brother."
                                                                                   ~The Shadow Riders by Louis L'Amour
