From saga novel Gathering Storm by Lynda Williams.
Amel's own life might be blighted by the hurts and rejections he'd lived through, but hope and love and joy were bigger than all of them. Big enough to give and give and never run out, because people fed each other on their hope.
Amel's ability to generalize emotions to embrace loved ones or even strangers is captured succinctly in this quote. It occurs, as well, on the scene in which his party is stopped while crossing Fountain Court when making his escape from Lilac Hearth in Part 4: Throne Price.
