Another comparison: CP2 and CoLS

Magnus in Clockwork Princess:
“You asked me how I, being immortal, survive so many deaths. There is no great secret. You endure what is unbearable, and you bear it. That is all.”

Brother Zachariah in City of Lost Souls:
“There are memories that time does not erase, Clarissa. Ask your friend Magnus Bane, if you do not believe me. Forever does not make loss forgettable, only bearable.”

I’ll be honest, this both warms my heart and tears it to pieces.
