The following quote is taken from Written In My Own Heart's Blood by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 117 "INTO THE BRIAR PATCH". Copyright (c) 2014by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved

""Death matters, at least sometimes."
   "I ken that," Jamie said softly, and took my hands in his; they were big, and
battered, scarred and maimed. "It's why a warrior doesna fear death so much.
He has the hope--sometimes the certainty--that his death will matter."
   "What happens to me between now and then doesna matter to anyone."
   Those words swam out of nowhere and struck me in the pit of the stom-
ach, so hard that I could barely breathe. He'd said that to me, from the bot-
tom of despair, in the dungeon of Wentworth Prison, a lifetime ago. He'd
bargained for my life then, with what he had--not his life, already forfeit, but
his soul.
   "It matters to me!" I'd said to him--and, against all odds, had ransomed
that soul and brought him back. "
