    “Every life has a watershed moment, an instant when you realize you're about to make a choice that will define everything else you ever do, and that if you choose wrong, there may not be that many things left to choose. Sometimes the wrong choice is the only one that lets you face the end with dignity, grace, and the awareness that you're doing the right thing.
    I'm not sure we can recognize those moments until they've passed us.”

As long as I held them, memories were mine and mine alone.”

    “I've been waiting for you all night and day,' she said.
    Froi shivered. He realised that the words came from Quintana the ice maiden. Realised, as he felt his face heating up, that the idea of this Quintana waiting for him with excitement spoke to parts of him he believed to be dormant. And then she winked.

    And Froi imagined that he would follow her to the ends of the earth.”
