“We get a second chance at everything, including our mistakes.”
Christopher X. Shade, The Good Mother of Marseille

“The wind does not change, the wind only blows and gusts, and it swells and swirls, and it whispers.”
Christopher X. Shade, The Good Mother of Marseille

“Marseille could be like the wind out on the sea. It could whip like the wind. It could fall quiet.”
Christopher X. Shade, The Good Mother of Marseille

“Illness was a monster that out of nowhere jumped on you with its claws out.”
Christopher X. Shade, The Good Mother of Marseille

“The wind does not change, the wind only blows and gusts, and it swells and swirls, and it whispers.”
Christopher X. Shade, The Good Mother of Marseille

“Marseilles isn't a city for tourists. There's nothing to see. Its beauty can't be photographed. It can only be shared. It's a place where you have to take sides, be passionately for or against. Only then can you see what there is to see. And you realize, too late, that you're in the middle of a tragedy. An ancient tragedy in which the hero is death. In Marseilles, even to lose you have to know how to fight.”
Jean-Claude Izzo, Total Chaos

“We get a second chance at everything, including our mistakes.”
Christopher X. Shade, The Good Mother of Marseille

“Marseille could be like the wind out on the sea. It could whip like the wind. It could fall quiet.”
Christopher X. Shade, The Good Mother of Marseille
