Before I give you the quote, I should explain that in the video game this comes from, the characters call their world “Thedas”. So, in the quote, every time you read Thedas, you can substitute Earth, and see if you agree that it applies to us.
“There is a danger to the natural order. Legends walked Thedas once, things of might and wonder. Their passing has left us all the lesser.”
“Yes! Is Thedas so full of wonders that we should leave them to die, one by one? Mankind blunders through the world, crushing what it doesn’t understand: elves, dragons, magic… the list is endless. We must slow the tide or be left with nothing more than the mundane. This I know to be true.”
Both of those quotes are verbalized by the character Morrigan, in the game Dragon Age: Inquisition.
