Atrus's Speech in Tomahna (Myst IV Good Ending)
"Ah, my friend. It seems I'm always thanking you. Catherine has taken Yeesha to Tay. She - she's alright, she really is a strong little girl. But, uh, she's going to need time. She loved Achenar ... and Sirrus very much. God, this is hard. It's as if a door inside me is closed, despite everything I've done to keep it open.
But in a way, maybe that's good. My sons may be gone, but my daughter is safe, and now Catherine and I can give her all the love and attention she'll need to move on with her life. Just as we must move on with ours.Endings are just another form of beginning, I guess. The harder an end is to face, the more hope we can bring with us to the next beginning.
