You place too much importance… on the so-called purity of blood. You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.
Dear SarahTheDragon and indeed All People of the Internet,
This is a Meaningful and Deep Reference made in The Dream Thieves that would make a great high school paper to impress your English teachers, boys and girls.

"Though so little remains to tell us of the actual man himself, this very fact has thrown a certain glamour and mystery about his name"
"Owen had accomplished much…He was the absolute and almost undisputed ruler and monarch of all of Wales, except a few castles, for about seven years; and for nearly ten years he had successfully conducted a war, with a power vastly superior in resources of wealth and men, an in fact one of the very greatest powers of the world at that time, as it is now; and moreover the territory for which he was contending was contiguous to this great power and therefore within striking distance.
This was the last attempt, the last struggle, for Welsh independence.”
