- For a thousand years, the Brotherhood of the Shield had a rallying cry: 'This is not how the world ends.' It was posturing...defiance. A thing of hope and promise. A statement about the potential of man. I alone know better because I know exactly when the world will end. For I possess the silent truth. I am Isaac Newton. Some men call me brother...you will call me master.
- -- Isaac Newton
