Doctor Who Wednesdays #43

“Clara sometimes asks me if I dream. ‘Of course I dream,’ I tell her. ‘Everybody dreams.’ ‘But what do you dream about?,’ she’ll ask. ‘The same things everybody dreams about,’ I tell her. ‘I dream about where I’m going. She always laughs at that. ‘But you’re not going anywhere, you’re just wandering about.’ That’s not true. Not anymore. I have a new destination. My journey is the same as yours, the same as anyone’s. It’s taken me so many years, so many lifetimes, but at last I know where I’m going. Where I’ve always been going. Home. The long way around.”

“I am not running away. But this is one corner of one country on one continent on one planet that’s a corner of a galaxy that’s a corner of a universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and growing and never remaining the same for a second millisecond, and there is so much – so much to see, Amy. Because it goes so fast. I’m not running away from things, I am running to them. Before they flare and fade forever.”
