Friday Quotes

We've lived too long, seen too much. To live on, as we have, is to leave behind joy, love, and companionship because we know it to be transitory; of the moment. We know it will turn to ash. Only those whose lives are brief can believe that love, is eternal.
You should embrace that remarkable illusion. It may be the greatest gift your race has ever received.
- Lorien: Babylon 5

The first lesson a Watcher learns is to separate truth from illusion, because in the world of magics, it's the hardest thing to do. The truth is that Fred is gone. To pretend anything else would be a lie. And, since I don't actually intend to die tonight… I won't accept a lie.
- Wesley: Angel - Not Fade Away
