Time is irrelevant if not for the limited time which one has to measure it.
— Eldritch of Time
The health of the body is propotionate to the health of the soul, and yet inversely proportionate the health of the land.  When the land is unhealthy all life and health suffers.  When the soul is unhealthy the body follows.
— Amar Eldritch of Healing
