[Flame Is Not The Only Fire." Her Tone Turned Almost Stern. "You Have Brought Your Folk Another Spark Far Greater Than Any Flame. You Have Opened Their Eyes To The World, Aljan, Shown Them Lands And Peoples Formerly Beyond Their Ken. You Have Whistled Them Out Of Their Cramped, Closed, Inward-facing Ring And Led Them Into My Dance, The Great Circle And Cycle Encompassing All. <…> Nay, Flame Has Not Been The Greatest Of My Gifts To You.

"He didnt blame James for falling in love with her, she was a radiant, deserving woman. He knew, however, that love only did one thing. It got in the way."

Christian D Larson Quotes

"When you see evil do not form ideas that are in the likeness of that evil; do not think of the evil as bad, but try to understand the forces that are back of that evil—forces that are good in themselves, though misdirected in their present state. By trying to understand the nature of the power that is back of evil or adversity, you will not form bad ideas, and therefore will feel no bad effects from experiences that may seem undesirable. At the same time, you will think your own thought about the experiences, thereby developing the power of the master mind."

Martyn Stanley Quotes

"Interesting Avil, the priests and the acolytes of the various religions and temples of Torea build their whole lives on a lie. At first, as children they believe it. Maybe as they grow older and more wise they see the absurdness of their beliefs, but by that time they have invested time and emotional energy into those beliefs, then seeing them crumble and fall apart would be too hard for them to bear. So the protect the lie, they shore it up with more lies and they ebb out their short lives, knowing what they preach is untrue, but preaching it all the same... Almost as if preaching it hard enough will make it true... Are they trying to convince their congregation? Or themselves? You are wiser than you look Avil."~Brael Truthseeker of House KrazicDeathsworn Arc 2 : The Verkreath Horror"
