„The ambition of the original Frank had not died; it had grown subtler. It had become a wish to sample everything.“

The more bodily habitations there were with which to sample, the more tantalizing the idea seemed: for many experiences, belonging only to one brief era, are never repeated, and may be gone before they are perceived and tasted.
