“I should have known that at the root of any mystery that's all you find: people doing unspeakable harm to other people. What else on this earth is there to hide?”
Nick Dybek, When Captain Flint Was Still a Good Man

“I needed someone to talk to, but there was no one in particular I wanted to talk to. That's the best definition of loneliness I know.”
Nick Dybek, The Verdun Affair

“Il ne pouvait pas savoir qu'une vie entière était une triste chose, que c'était un pont entre deux mondes qui ne croyaient pas l'un en l'autre.”
Nick Dybek, The Verdun Affair
