“-¿Con la fantasía?-preguntó Esther-. ¿Qué es una fantasía?, ¿lo mismo que una ilusión?

-No precisamente, la fantasía es algo que existe, pero a muchos les parece que no. Con la ilusión ocurre lo contrario, es aquello que no existe, pero muchos creen que sí- le contesta Drágor detalladamente.”
Goran Petrović, Atlas descrito por el cielo

“Hay islas que el mar traga cuando le da la gana sin importar su supuesta grandeza. Pero también hay pequeños escollos que resisten por siempre.”
Goran Petrović, Opsada Crkve Sv. Spasa

“En la parte interna superior del muslo derecho, allí donde la piel abunda extraordinariamente en ternura, Esther tiene un lunar en forma de grano de granada.”
Goran Petrović, Atlas descrito por el cielo
