“Not by one's word but by one's actions can you really get to know a man.”
Dani Kollin, The Unincorporated War

“History,” answered Justin, unfazed, “has had to deal with your kind forever. You don’t get it. The ends are the means. You are what you do and what you accept.”
Dani Kollin, The Unincorporated Man
