On moral

"But... don't you think there needs to be a moral to each story?" The man looked at her with surprise on his face.


His surprise turned to shock. "Because... because... I mean, stories are a great way to improve the world! To show your readers how to behave correctly, and how to improve themselves!"

"And who am I to show my readers how to behave?" she replied, head tilted.

"Don't you want to make the world a better place?" he pleaded. "Imagine all the good you could do!"

She thought about his words for a moment. "The only thing that is wrong with the world is that it can be pretty boring without stories. That, and that there are always people trying to tell you what to do."
