“Extra' was a very American word. Americans seemed to have extras of everything.”
Minfong Ho, The Stone Goddess

“He tried to press the machine into my hands, but I stepped back. He was getting too close, and besides, I didn't know what this meant. Was he trying to sell me the machine? Was he giving it to me? I had heard that in America, if a girl accepted a ring from a boy, it meant she would marry him. What about accepting a tape-playing machine? Did it mean I might have to dance with him?”
Minfong Ho, The Stone Goddess

“And so our reunion was like countless others:
the tear of joy were mixed with tears of sorrows, the laughing merging with the weeping. For every one of us who rejoiced at finding a loved one alive, there was someone else who mourned the dead. And those who had survived often had taken the place of someone more worthy who had die.”
Minfong Ho, The Stone Goddess
