“That's one of the things my dad taught me-that one of the most respectful things you can do for another person is be on time. 'Cause what's more valuable than one single minute in a human being's life? Time is finite, he used to say, the most precious and limited resource.”
Adam Pelzman, Troika

“Just a minute of perfect darkness before he pulls me out of a place I really had no business going.”
Adam Pelzman, Troika

“I open my hand and put my thumb and index finger around his wrist and lift it up to the strobe light. And there it is, blinking in the light, on-off, on-off, on-off, a platinum wedding band, clear and bright like a priest’s collar.”
Adam Pelzman, Troika
