(Reamer has jumped Paladin from behind with a knife, prompting Paladin to spin and shoot him in the arm)
Adella: Is that your idea of "those who live by the sword"? An unarmed boy?
Paladin: Well, he was not exactly unarmed. Besides, I assume that any man who attacks me from the rear is trying to kill me.
Deke: Now, Ma'am, you can't hardly blame him for that. I reckon a suspicious soul is always thinking evil thoughts about his fellow man, well now, he'd just better be handy with an iron. Outa sheer self preservation. I remember a grave I saw back in Arkansas once. Had a lovely motto carved on it, some foreign tongue. Translated as "Evil to him what evil thinks".
