Neil Gaiman – The Sandman, vol. 10 (1996)
the envoy O’Shaughnessy: Sir Librarian–the young lord in white…who was he?
Lucien: He is Dream of the Endless.
envoy: He is…? But the wake. That ceremony. I was told that Dream of the Endless was no more.
envoy: So…who died?
Lucien: Nobody died. How can you kill an idea? How can you kill the personification of an action?
envoy: Then what died? Who are you mourning?
Abel: A puh-point of view.
