Atrus's Speech (Myst III: Exile Good Ending)
"At last I can rejoice, for Releeshahn has been returned to me unharmed. The age I hoped would provide a new beginning still lives on. I'm sure that no danger shall befall it. And as I sit here, writing in this journal, I rejoice to know that Narayan, too, is safe. The secrets of its past have been unlocked and old wrongs have finally been righted.
I know now that we can't escape the past. Nor can we rewrite it, hoping to lessen our pain. The best we can hope for is to continue to learn, to take from the past only that which is good, and move on. Perhaps in the process, we will build a brighter future." - Atrus
