"Didn't they tell you, Jack? It's great being a Guardian! But there's a catch. If enough kids stop believing, everything your friends protect - wonder, hopes, and dreams - it all goes away. And little by little, so do they."
― Pitch Black explaining the Guardians' powers to Jack (Rise of the Guardians)
