“I walk among my enemies. But I carry my friends with me.”
Ambelin Kwaymullina, The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf

“I bared my teeth at him. “There will come a day when a thousand Illegals descend on your detention centres. Boomers will breach the walls. Skychangers will send lightning to strike you all down from above, and Rumblers will open the earth to swallow you up from below. There will be nowhere to hide, nowhere to run, and no way to stop them from freeing every single Illegal in this centre. And when that day comes, Justin Connor, think of me.”

“Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself.”

“Success and failure are two edges of the same blade, two sides of the same coin. To fear one is to forever deny the possibility of the other.”
Michelle Sagara West, Cast In Courtlight
