11. Lyris’ sacrifice

As mortals, we spend almost our entire existence trying to emulate the Divines in one way or another.  We look to them for guidance, for inspiration, for motivation, for purpose, for judgement, for ambition, and for reason.  For their providence, we often love them and hate them in equal measures, but most of all we envy them their immortality.

But in truth, the Divines have equal reason to envy us for the one noble virtue we have that these immortals can never have.  The nobility of sacrifice.

We may never be as Divines, but every mortal, being mortal, has more to lose, more to give in sacrifice, then any Divine will ever know.
