Worth noting - at the end of "The Great Hunt", Loial is reading a book called "To Sail Beyond the Sunset" when Rand wakes for the first time in five days. The book title would seem to reference Tennyson's poem of the same name. The title comes from the following quote:
"for my purpose holds To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths Of all the western stars, until I die.
It's a nice allegorical summary of Loial's character. --Aeo 21:12, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
