"You think this is cruel, dragons? Your kind had burnt our homes to ashes, pillaged our cities, devoured our live-stocks and kill our people.
Now you lay upon the ash-covered wastes of your ruined realm; your hoards plundered, your lairs destroyed, your eggs smashed, all ending in the fire that you have covered the world with impunity for ages.
Thousands of our own people are dead because of your kind, and you never think for a moment that one day we would have had enough? That we would no longer just prostrate ourselves to you, like a lamb before a wolf? Are we all still the helpless morsels that you could cower, mock and crush with impunity?
What say you, you monster? WHAT SAY YOU NOW?!"
--- A Human sorcerer, to a surviving dragon, after laying waste to the dragons' land with the "Apocalypse from the sky" spell, wiping out most of the dragons that had been pillaging his people's lands.
