Quotes from a Renaissance Man

Paladin: "It's a chess piece, the most versatile on the board. It can move in eight different directions, over obstacles, and it's always unexpected."
Paladin: "If I have wronged you, I apologize. If I have not, I hope they hang you." (Nagged by his prissy female companion into apologizing to a pair of manipulative prospectors -- whom Paladin suspects murdered their partner.)
Paladin: "I could always beat him. I let him think he was faster... because it pleased him." (After gunning down an old friend gone bad.)
Paladin: "Fast, but not accurate -- anybody figure he can do better?" (To hostile onlookers after blowing away a slightly faster draw in a gunfight.)
Paladin: "You don't have to be afraid, boy..." (To the young son of an abusive father -- and indirectly to the father standing next to him, who doesn't want the boy to go to school.)
Paladin: "I told a friend I wear this gun for survival. As bad as you need killing, I'd prefer to live by that conviction." (About five seconds before you-know-what.)
Paladin: "Elkins says you're an honest man, Billy Joe Kane. Are you? So far I've seen you lie, cheat, steal and try murder. You've tried everything but begging -- now get down on your knees, Billy Joe." (To a dehydrated Mojave desert race-fixer, who needs Paladin's water.)
(Answering a question about the symbol on his holster.)
