Sorry for the delay, I need to dry clean my sheet. Karen is right.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you,

I was never the sort to receive portents, or to delude myself that I had. Silence was always my portion, in return for my prayers.

Slightly later in the same conversation:
You once told me you had promised XXX not to speak of YYY’s true fate to any living soul. Um. Well. Here am I, before you now.

Expanding the quote slightly:

“Or just some random poacher,” said YYY, though his ears had pricked with interest.

How we are introduced to YYY:
“These are my friends AAA”—a big burly fellow, perhaps BBB’s age—“YYY”—the bouncy-looking young man in question gave a cheery salute—“and CCC.” The last was a young woman with sandy-red hair and a smattering smattering of freckles across her sharp cheekbones.


The original (expanded) quote:

Another hint: This is from one of the Penric tales.
