I speak of a love that brings sight to the blind. Of a love stronger than fear. I speak of a love that brings meaning into life, that defies natural laws of deterioration, that causes us to flourish, that knows no bounds. I speak of the triumph of the human spirit over selfishness and death.
-- U Ba (Part I, Chapter 1 paragraph 13)
