“A sailor chooses the wind that takes the ship from a safe port. Ah, yes, but once you're abroad, as you have seen, winds have a mind of their own. Be careful, Charlotte, careful of the wind you choose.”
Avi, The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle

“I took a deep breath. 'For you I've got something better than love.'
What's that?'
I...trust you.'
Why?'
You'll never hurt me.'
Thank you.'
But...'
But, what?'
I said, 'That means I'll hurt you.'
Why?'
'Cause, like I said, you'll never hurt me back.”
Avi, What Do Fish Have to Do With Anything?

“The more men see of the world, the bigger their hearts”
Avi, At the Edge of the World
