Random Magic Quote

Normally, I don't post quotes from books. This one, however, was simple too good to pass up. This passage, and the story behind, is definitely one of my favorite quotes ever. I actually got tears in my eyes while reading this. Read this slowly, savor each sentence, and the end will be wonderful.

"Deep in the heart of a city, a woman stood alone, at the top of a golden bridge which gleamed in the sun.
.....For once, after many, many years of sorrow, she smiled to herself. She, too, had found what she was seeking.
.....For what she'd asked him, in her real voice, a voice that only the heart could hear, was a simple question:
.....Have you ever once loved another human creature so much that her life was more precious to you than your own?
.....And his heart had replied in words just as plain:
....."Yes," it said, and the power of it nearly blinded her."
