Huginn: I think we had to be ravens.

Muninn: Why so?

H: If we were landbound we would have been overcome by the weight of sorrow; if we were seafast, we would have been drowned by the ubiquity of suffering.

M: You think we are the only ones who see? Surely our pain cannot be unique.

H: I spoke to the gryphon, but he shrieked mindlessly at me and went on tearing the flesh of the horses of the night. I spoke to the wyvern, but she shrieked knowingly at me and turned her face from me.

M: It is a unique slavery, and a unique guardianship. But the pain, it is for all the world and beyond.
