“Магазинът е малък и навсякъде са натрупани книги на купчини. Точно така трябва да изглежда всяка книжарница. Подозирам, че тук има клиенти, затрупани от книжна лавина, премазани от нея и никога след това неоткрити.”
Michael Katakis, Traveller: Observations from an American in Exile

“Аз самият съм син на имигрант и отлично разбирам какво представлява неофициалният договор между един имигрант и държавата. Просто казано, имигрантът се съгласява на асимилация, приема да се подчинява на законите на страната и да уважава, дори и ако не харесва, културата ѝ. Задължението на държавата е да му предостави работа и възможности, да поддържа ред, при който имигрантите могат да се развиват и дори да преуспеят.”
