Deny death, and you deny life.DeathTales From Earthsea
No man nor anything in this world lives forever. But only to us is it given to know that we must die. And that is a precious gift.Tales From Earthsea, by Haitaka
You think your life belongs to you? Tenar gave me life. That's why I have to live, to give life to someone else. That's the only way we live forever.Tales From Earthsea, by Theru
In ages past, dragons and men were one. Those who lusted after wealth chose the land and the sea and became men.
Those who cherished freedom, became dragons and chose wind and fire.
Everything you see under the sun and stars owes its very existence to the balance: the wind and seas, the powers of earth and light, all these do is well and rightly done within the equilibrium. But now, men hold the power to control the world. Men must learn to do what leaf and whale and wind do naturally. It is for us to keep the balance.Tales From Earthsea, by Haitaka
