“If you stay, I’ll give you my heart and never ask for it back.”
Carey Corp, Doon

“That's the other thing I'll carry with me when I ascend, the experience of loving you with my whole being, beyond reason and measure. Beyond supernatural discipline. A once in eternity miracle... my miracle.”
Carey Corp

“Gently I touched his arm."Consider your promise fulfilled. You can go home now."
He raised his head to pierce me with his dark, anguished eyes. "I'm trying to -- if you'd stop fighting me with every breath."
"Don't be absurd. Chicago's not your home."
"No," he said. "You are.”
Carey Corp, Destined for Doon
