“Things don't always work out the way we expect them to... you can't just give up.”
Jade Varden, Justice

“When there is no regulation and no control, we lose. The herds become depleted, the plants are over-picked... and certain important characteristics might fade away. That's why you're so important, Rinna. That's why you are so valuable. Because you have something that we almost lost for ever.”
Jade Varden, Hope's Rebellion

“Drexi made it very clear that she thought allowing a machine to decide their futures was very silly. Rinna thought choosing by hair color was much, much worse.”
Jade Varden, Hope's Rebellion
