"Last night I saw a little girl that played with a toy I forged from her parents souls while she was watching. She understood nothing, but in time she will. Everyone does."

"Ahh... Sheep are innocent creatures. That's why shepherds herd them and wolves slay them."
The Bodhisattva Anointed by Dark Waters
"While many claim themselves to be some kind of innocents and some branding others as innocent, noone truly is for their imperfections precede them. Innocene itself is a form of perfection and while aspiring for it is a valuable effort, there is only one thing that given by its nature is absolutely perfect: Oblivion. Not only does the Void not bear flaws, it also clears everyone else of their imperfections. In the fourth age, when All is the Oblivion and the Oblivion is All, there will only exist perfection. Is this perfection also valid for Innocence? Yes it is. The Void does not judge, between king and beggar, living and ghost, you and me. For it we are all the same and in it we are aswell. In conclusion true Innocence can only be found in Oblivion and everyone portraying themselves as innocent should be watched very closely."
The Bishop of Chalcedony Thurible in Tome of Endless Night Vol. 237
"Innoncence is a lot like virginity, once it's taken you can't give it back. And who would?"
