  • "The view from these clouds is quite marvelous, isn't it? It is our greatest loss that so few care to venture here...

    Perhaps that is why hope seems so far. Why would one want change if they cannot see what could be.

    Don't lose heart, my boy.

    The skies are lonely places, but they aren't meant to be your home. Just stay long enough for people to look up.

    And even though they won't join you, they will never forget the view."
