Quotes by Steven Galloway  (?)

“A weapon does not decide whether or not to kill. A weapon is a manifestation of a decision that has already been made.”
Steven Galloway, The Cellist of Sarajevo

“She felt an enveloping happiness to be alive, a joy made stronger by the certainty that someday it would all come to an end. Afterward she felt a little foolish, and never spoke to anyone about it.
Now, however, she knows she wasn't being foolish. She realizes that for no particular reason she stumbled into the core of what it is to be human. It's a rare gift to under stand that you life is wondrous, and that it won't last forever. ”
Steven Galloway, The Cellist of Sarajevo

“This is how....life happens. One small thing at a time. A series of inconsequential junctions, any or none of which can lead to salvation or disaster. There are no grand moments where a person does or does not perform the act that defines their humanity. There are only moments that appear, briefly, to be this way.”
Steven Galloway, The Cellist of Sarajevo
