You may quote me

I believe in living by the values in fairy tales: that truth shall be told, no matter the peril; that promises must be kept, no matter the cost; that love is not about what you bring to me but what I sacrifice for you. The "real world" seems a dingy sort of dump to those who live by the ethics of Elfland.
