Well, I was living it, but a shared dream half-lived is a hollow thing
Io sono Phèdre nó Delaunay de Montrève, e sono unica.
Yes my lord, but questions are dangerous, for they have answers
Quando l’Amore mi ha scacciata, è stata la Crudeltà ad avere pietà di me.
If you thought better of me, you would not be so surprised
To have a traitor for an ally is to have an enemy in waiting
And for a price, I will pretend absolutely nothing.
Stupid to speak of blame when the wills of the immortals are involved.
The pain of the flesh is naught to that of the heart
And Kushiel sends no punishment that we are not fit to bear.
Truly, it is in loss that we learn a thing’s true value.
It’s funny how despair can soon become an old companion
I don’t know. I know only that in your own way, you inspire us.
