“Even the strongest and bravest must sometimes weep. It shows they have a great heart, one that can feel compassion for others.”
Brian Jacques, Redwall

“Don't be ashamed to weep; 'tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.”
Brian Jacques, Taggerung

“Wot Wot”
Brian Jacques, The Long Patrol
