This she will do, but only in exact ratio to our evolving ability and worthiness to receive them.lon milo duquette

Westley: You mean you wish to surrender to me? Very well, I accept.

Man in Black: That does put a damper on our relationship.

Oh, my beloved nymph, fair Dove, princess of rivers, how I love Upon thy flowery banks to lie, And view thy silver stream, When gilded by a summer's beam! And in it all thy wanton fry, Playing at liberty; And with my angle, upon them The all of treachery I ever learned, industriously to try!
Long live Crimea! princess Elincia...May fortune smile on you...!
