„No matter what choice you make, it doesn't define you. Not forever. People can make bad choices and change their minds and hearts and do good things later; just as people can make good choices and then turn around and walk a bad path.

— Jonathan Maberry, Dust & Decay

She didn't answer. Angry, and half in love with her, and tremendously sorry, I turned away.“
— F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
