“Only a blind man could have lived through these last years without seeing what was bearing down upon us; so I made myself blind as I could manage. I wanted to believe the worst was behind me, and I found an easy way to make it so. I simply turned my back on what was coming.”
John Wray

“If you don't like the place where you find yourself, Waldemar, it pays to remember that you'll be somewhere else in just a moment. The place itself will be a different place.”
John Wray, The Lost Time Accidents

“The world is a loony bin [...]. Luckily for us, our front door happens to be one of its exits.”
