"I lost my nearest friend in the one they called the Great War. So did Achilles lose his friend in war, and Homer did no injustice to his grief by writing about it in dactylic hexameters … Such grief can only be told in form … Without it you’ve got nothing but a stubbed-toe cry – sincere, maybe, for what that’s worth, but with no depth or carry. No echo. You may have a grievance but you do not have grief."
"Simplicity is not about making something without ornament, but rather about making something very complex, then slicing elements away, until you reveal the very essence."
The last episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired ten years ago today on May 20th, 2003

Sarah Michelle Gellar: I Can’t Be Prouder of ‘Buffy’
It’s been 10 years since “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” ended its seven-year run on TV. I had the chance to ask series star Sarah Michelle Gellar about the show’s lasting legacy.
“Wait, wait. Hold on. Really?” she replied when The Huffington Post told her the 10th anniversary of the “Buffy” finale was upon us. “Wow. God, you just blew my mind.” Robin Williams, who accompanied Gellar on the red carpet said, “It’s kind of wonderful.”
“It is,” Gellar said. “I’m incredibly proud of that show — proud of everybody on it, of what we did … You can’t be prouder of that show. It still holds up in reruns and I’m blessed every day … I’ve been pretty lucky.”
I love you Buffy,
