'I was born in a civilization of castles and cannons. I've lived a long time – not counting coldsleep – and I've seen a lot. Since the Dawn Age, we humans have learned a little here, a little there – but mainly we have learned of limits. Planetary civilizations rise and fall. At the height they're wonderful things, but there is so much darkness. And even the Qeng Ho – we survive and prosper, but we've found limits that we can only edge toward, like lightspeed itself.'
