“You feed on them! On the memory of love and loss and birth and death and sorrow! So, so… Come on, then. Take mine. Take my memories… Because I have lived a long, long life and I have seen a few things. I walked away from the last great time war. I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment until nothing remained. No time. No space. Just me. I’ve walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a madman! I’ve watched universes freeze and creations burn! I have seen things you wouldn’t believe. I have lost things you’ll never understand! And I know things, secrets that must never be told, knowledge that must never be spoken! Knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze. So come on, take it! Take it all, baby!”
