The warrior of light remembers a passage from John Bunyan:
'Although I have been through all that I have, I do not regret the many
hardships I met, because it was they who brought me to the place I wished to
reach. Now all I have is this sword and I give it to whomever wishes to continue
his pilgrimage. I carry with me the marks and scars of battles - they are the
witnesses of what I suffered and the rewards of what I conquered.
These are the beloved marks and scars that will open the gates of Paradise
to me. There was a time when I used to listen to tales of bravery. There was a
time when I lived only because I needed to live. But now I live because I am a
warrior and because I wish one day to be in the company of Him for whom I have
fought so hard.'
