Why, that’s like being told to go up in the hills and find lions, only you do not know whether there are any lions, but if there are, they may be hunting you, and they may be disguised as bushes. Oh, and if you find any lions, try not to let them eat you before you can tell where they are.
Robert Jordan. The Dragon Reborn. Chapter 16.
Daughter of the Night, She walks again.
The ancient war, yet she fights.
Her new lover she seeks, who shall serve her and die,
yet serve still
Who shall stand against her coming?
The shining walls shall kneel.
Blood Feeds blood.
Blood calls blood.
Blood is, and blood was, and blood shall ever be.
Words written in blood on the walls of the Fal Dara, prophecies of the shadow.
Robert Jordan. The Great Hunt. Chapter 7.
We live the same lives! Over and over and over. We make the same mistakes. Kingdoms do the same stupid things. Rulers fail their people time and time again. Men continue to hurt and hate and die and kill!
What if I think it’s all meaningless? What if I don’t want it to keep turning? We live our lives by the blood of others! And those others become forgotten. What good is it if everything we know will fade? Great deeds or great tragedies, neither means anything! They will become legends, then those legends will be forgotten, then it will all start all over again!
Why do we live again?
Why? Could it be … Maybe it’s so that we can have a second chance.
Why? Because each time we live, we get to love again.
Quite a few of you know of me in the WoT community here on tumblr but I decided to throw all of my Wheel of Time related posts into a separate blog and make this blog very extensive eventually. Since I’m currently doing yet another reread I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to make this blog! If anyone wants to contribute or submit or whatever I’m open to it as always.
