“[…] Know this, mortal – love is the only thing worth fighting for. Without it you die. Oh, your body may move in its absence; your eyes may see; your mouth may laugh and speak; your lungs may breathe – but you, the essential you, is dead.’” (Mc Daid, Paladin of Tarrthála 2012)
How naff is that, quoting yourself? Still I think it’s a neat observation by my muse.
