The Tempest

Dare not offer
What I desire to give; and much less take
What I shall die to want

I am trying to think of a translation for this but I don't think I'll ever get that last line right. It is reminding me terribly of my cleric Fynn, but I am completely unable to decide what this refers to in her life. Maybe both solutions will come at once.

No atreverme a ofrecer lo que deseo dar; y mucho menos tomar...

The Cold

I've been thinking about things and remembering some quotes that have always resonated. I've thought how hard it is to sacrifice for what is right but also how hard it is for me to sacrifice at all. For any reason. Especially for myself. And I keep thinking about this quote and about the self and about meaning:

“This I choose to do. If there is a price, this I choose to pay. If it is my death, then I choose to die. Where this takes me, there I choose to go. I choose.This I choose to do.”
