The potential for damnation is indistinguishable from the potential for redemption.

Stephen Donaldson, Gradual Interview, 12 November 2009.

Actually, the full quote is, in response to a question speculating that both the Creator and Lord Foul had to agree in order to summon someone from the ‘real’ world to the world of the Land:

On the other hand, I hope it’s obvious that LF and the Creator don’t both “pick” the same people by accident or coincidence. (This is just one more of the paradoxes in which I take such delight.) Ultimately they both pick Covenant and Linden for the same reason: *potential*. Covenant has it in him to be LF’s perfect tool. As does Linden. And perhaps Jeremiah. In the moral universe of “The Chronicles,” the potential for damnation is indistinguishable from the potential for redemption.
