Everyone dies, Rose, everyone dies. Even Doctors, when the time is right. The future is never settled, never static, and I can only see so far.

I told you, didn’t I? Time Lords don’t control time, no more than sailors control the sea; we’re both carried along by currents we can’t master.

I never said I was a god, Rose. It’s still just a life, no matter how you live it, sideways or backwards it’s all the same. We’ve ridden out the storms before, but happy endings are never guaranteed, and no one can promise you anything. Not even Doctors.
