“What makes this danger so terrible is that humans tip the balance of your world. No other species can make such a difference, for good or ill. If humans can live in harmony with other forms of life, the world rejoices. If not, the world suffers--and may not survive.”
T.A. Barron

“Stories help me. To live. To work. To find the meaning hidden in every dream, ever leaf, every drop of dew.”
T.A. Barron

“And now, my friends, a dragon's toast! Here's to life's little blessings: war, plagues, and all forms of evil. Their presence keeps us alert--- and their absence keeps us grateful.”
T.A. Barron, Merlin's Dragon
