“It is called ‘Force’ in your tongue. But as you push the world, so does the world push back. Think of the way force may be applied effortlessly. Imagine but a whisper pushing aside all in its path. That is ‘Fus.’ Let its meaning fill you. Su’um ahrk morah. You will push the world harder than it pushes back.” —Paarthurnax, in Skyrim. Such unexpected, resonant wisdom from what appears to be just a game.
