"I still live."
I have consistently misquoted this as "We still live!"
But "We still live!" makes more sense to me.
Carter fights to protect others, not just himself.
And I apply this phrase to any fictional hero whose death we have not been shown:
Nicholas van Rijn, David Falkayn, Dominic Flandry, Gratillonius...
There is an Upanishadic verse:
"From delusion lead me to truth
"From darkness lead me to light
"From death lead me to immortality"
-Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 1.iii.28 -
- which I adapt as:
"From delusion, lead us to truth.
"From darkness, lead us to light."
We are mortal and in it together.
