“There is always something to lose. But maybe more to gain.”
John Christopher, Beyond the Burning Lands
“I think before I act---and then think again. I am not entirely a coward, but I do not lose myself in action as you do.”
John Christopher, Beyond the Burning Lands
“He said, speaking more to himself than to me: 'It was knowledge I sought. Knowledge which is clean and pure, far above the cheating and deceiving in which most men spend their lives.'

John Christopher, Beyond the Burning Lands
