Enough, for now

There are so many memories in the Neath. The god that died. The pigs that slept. [..] The doors that were roses. The river that came from Hell... and the One who drowned in the well beneath the Temple. Understand that, and you understand the candle.


Not enough

This is the secret: "If the Sun is Its master, let the Sun be sunken, let the currents rush in, [..] My hate will not be contained until the Sun is cindered and damned, until Its heart is empty as theirs." It is not enough.
