"So much has been lost. So much forgotten. So much pain. So much blood, and for what? The past tempts us, the present confuses us, the future frightens us and our lives slip away moment by moment, lost in that vast terrible in-between. But there is still time to seize that one last fragile moment, to choose something better. To make a difference, as you say."
Centauri Emperor Turhan, Babylon 5
