"There is no dishonor. It is easier to heal myself than another. My most effective healing requires a touch, one that would leave me exposed to retaliation. If I can rather stand back form the fray and heal myself, it reduces the risk to us all. If matters are as grave as they appear, we will need to work together, not try to fight individually. I have seen many groups head into danger. The ones that came back out where not the strongest, nor the fastest or most clever, but the ones that could work together."
