„Большинство разговоров – это просто монологи в присутствии свидетелей.“

„The world of maps is nice and flat and simple. It has areas for people and areas for monsters. What a shock it is to discover the world is round and the areas merge and nothing separates the monsters and ourselves; that we are all whirling around in space together and there isn't even a graceful way of falling off.“ Beyond This Point Are Monsters

„The rest of us have monsters too, but we must call them by other names, or pretend they don't exist...“ Beyond This Point Are Monsters

„Some people become so expert at reading between the lines they don't read the lines.“

„You have a low opinion of yourself, Helen."
