"'Time will show.'
'Time will never show. Our lives are too short'" (p. 109).

"I believe what I told her, he told himself as he went to find the Mayor, I believe it of course, but how is it that when I speak of belief, I become aware always of a shadow, the shadow of disbelief haunting my belief?" (p. 172).

'So does the bishop, which inclines me to think it is true'" (p. 213).
