Quotes: Cosmic Keystone
"Now listen closely, because this bit is very important. Existence, in all its forms and splendor functions solely on one principle: God is infallible. To prove Him wrong would undo reality and everything that is. Up would become down, black would become white, existence would become nothingness. In essence, if they are allowed to enter that church, they'll unmake the world."
Metatron, Dogma

"Once upon a time, there was a golden city. In the centre of the golden city, atop the tallest minaret, were three golden balls. The ancients had prophesied, that if the three golden balls were ever taken away, harmony would yield to discord, and the city would fall to destruction... and death.
Opening narration from The Thief and the Cobbler

Garland: Oh, that's useful.
