“It’s the way he’s holding himself. Standing straight, neck unbent, shoulders back. When he steps, his whole foot treads the ground. Not just the ball, as if he would run, or the heel, as if he would hesitate. He steps solidly down, claiming the piece of the ground for his own.”

– The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
