“Flesh forgets. Bone remembers.”
Jefferson Bass

“If you're going to play what-if --which, by the way, is a huge waste of time and energy, not to mention an act of supreme, center-of-the-universe narcissism-- you have to play it both ways.

As somebody who prevented God-knows-what dire disaster simply by doing exactly the things you did.”
Jefferson Bass

“You do have an eye for the tarnished lining.”
Jefferson Bass, Flesh and Bone
