Líf: Have you noticed anything?
Thrasir: What is there to notice? It is a simple festival. These people always find some excuse to celebrate.

Thrasir: This festival is not meant for us. We should go. Your mother and father are here... How much longer can you bear to stay?

Líf: As you say. But, Veronica, remember this... We are not alone.
Thrasir: Alfonse... Yes. We are not alone. No matter what happens...
Líf: Let us go. We need to focus on uncovering the weaknesses of those gods...
Thrasir: Very well. We will do as you suggest.

Level 40 quote

Líf: The Day of Devotion... An event that holds no meaning for the dead, who exist only as memories... We have no future. For us, love has no meaning. However...Veronica, I do have you.
