Say What? - quote of the week... More Quotes
First Slayer: You are full of love. You love with all of your soul. It's brighter than the fire... blinding. That's why you pull away from it.
Buffy: I'm full of love? I'm not losing it?
First Slayer: Only if you reject it. Love is pain, and the Slayer forges strength from pain. Love... give... forgive. Risk the pain. It is your nature. Love will bring you to your gift.
Buffy: What?
