“Perhaps one day, in a year or even in a century, you’ll turn up at my door and let me show you what the world has to offer. You mark my words. Small-town boy, small-town life; it won’t be enough for you.”
''He's your first love. I intend to be your last. However long it takes.''
'"And I could let you die. If that's what you want. If you really believe your existence has no meaning. I've thought about it myself once or twice over the centuries, truth be told. But I'll let you in on a little secret. There's a whole world out there waiting for you. Great cities, and art, and music... genuine beauty. And you can have all of it. You can have a thousand more birthdays. All you have to do is ask."
