I have claimed that Escape is one of the main functions of fairy-stories, and since I do not disapprove of them, it is plain that I do not accept the tone of scorn or pity with which 'Escape' is now so often used. Why should a man be scorned if, finding himself in prison, he tries to get out and go home? Or if he cannot do so, he thinks and talks about other topics than jailers and prison-walls? J.R.R. Tolkien "On Fairy-Stories"
We are all the sum of our tears. Too little and the ground is not fertile, and nothing can grow there. Too much, the best of us is washed away. G'Kar - Babylon 5
Some prices are just too high, no matter how much you may want the prize. The one thing you can't trade for your heart's desire is your heart. Miles Vorkosigan - Lois M. Bujold "Memory"
