I have been a battletech fan since 1991... you would be hard pressed to find someone who is more enthiusiastic about the entire universe and the games based upon it. This summer, I dove back into the novels, and that quote sounded VERY familiar. My first guess was the correct one, although it took me a bit to find the right page.
The words were spoken on the 18th of August, 3028, on Terra by Akira, the son of Yorinaga-sama, who began suspecting (with some encouragement from the daughter of the Minister of Davion intelligence) that some of the Comstar adepts that he observed were mechwarriors in training because of the way they spoke and smelled. Akira had snuck off only to find the most shocking of discoveries... a fully operative battlemech facility on Terra and run by Comstar. Akira was caught by some periphery thugs who were recruited by Comstar for its growing army. The "thugs" tried to kill Akira, but out of nowhere came Colonel Jamie Wolf, Col. Morgan Kell, and Yorinaga- a very unexpected trio. While Cols. Wolf and Morgan disposed of the thugs and their corpses, Akira was carried off to safety by his father. Akira was the only one who made it close enough to the facility (although he could not get inside of it) to realize that Comstar was harboring mint-condition mechs of star league era design. The four of them agreed to keep quiet about Akira's shocking discovery: none of the house lords, gathered on Terra to witness the marriage between Hanse Davion andMelissa Steiner, would learn of their peril, as the inner sphere was on the eve of itsplunge into the fourth succession war.
I have re-typed the sentences just below.
<<<Yorinaga caught his son before he could hit the ground. "Akira," he whispered hoarsely. "What is it?"
"Down there, I got a look beneath ComStar's facade." He shook his head slowly, remembering what he
had seen and for the first time realizing how much it had struck fear in him. "The Word of Blake is bound
with steel . . .">>>
Good enough? Do I win a prize?
If I only had the time, not to mentionaccess to many of the books that have long been out of print, I would read enough to know everything there is to know about the battletech universe, as it has always been my favorite hobby. I just wish it had a wider fan-base -perhaps this new online interpretation will accomplish that. I have fond memories of VGA Multi-Player Battletech.

...and a hell of a nice guy to work with, even with that lip caterpillar of his shedding all over the place
He also was the main mind behind the Renegade Legion line and mechanics.
