“Words could be empty. It was the return of a gesture that held meaning. And”
Claire Cameron, The Last Neanderthal

“All beasts were made of meat and blood. Their daily life often involved some kind of gore. When they sliced open any of the animals around them, the insides of the bodies looked much the same as their own. The blood of a red deer tasted surprisingly similar to one's own blood. A chip of the bone of a wolverine was hard to distinguish from a chip of a brother's bone. For all these similarities, there was a sharp divide that separated the beasts. there were only two kinds of meat: The meat that gets to eat. And the meat that gets eaten.”
Claire Cameron

“Big Mother believed that the measure of a life could be reduced to such small things, a count of the wrinkles to see how many laughs versus how many frowns a body had produced. Because of this, Girl knew that the old woman made sure to laugh often.”
Claire Cameron, The Last Neanderthal
