- What are you offering me-- an empire? A throne? I left all that behind on Earth. Don't you see? I'm a seeker-- I don't know, after a cosmic Holy Grail. A... dream that's forever unattainable. Or maybe... I just need to see what's beyond the farthest star. I have the universe. I don't need to be shackled to a throne. I am Starlord.
