“...what still blew them all away was time itself, the days and months and the years, oh yes, the years. They went faster than anything man had the capacity to invent, so fast that for a while they fooled you into thinking they were slow, and was there any crueler trick than that?”
Michael Koryta, So Cold the River

“You have bound us, Kimble imagined saying, to an evil world. Where’s the love in that? And in that scenario, God always answered, Temporarily bound you, yes. Now, during your time in that evil world, did you do anything to help?”
Michael Koryta, The Ridge

“It was all about size now: the big ran the world on the sweat of the small, and if the big faltered for any reason, the small were the first to go.”
Michael Koryta, The Cypress House
