Yay, Old Uns’ Smart mastered sicks, miles, seeds an' made miracles ord’nary, but it din’t master one thing, nay, a hunger in the hearts o' humans, yay, a hunger for more.
But ain't dyin' terrorsome cold if there ain't nothin' after? Yay --she sort o' laughed but not smilin', nay-- our truth is terrorsome cold.david mitchell
List'n, savages an Civ'lizeds ain't divvied by tribes or b'liefs or mountain ranges, nay, ev'ry human is both, Yay. Old Uns'd got the Smart o' gods but the savagery o' jackals, an' that's what tripped the Fall.david mitchell
Souls cross ages like clouds cross skies, an' tho' a cloud's shape nor hue nor size don't stay the same, it's still a cloud an' so is a soul. Who can say where the cloud's blowed from or who the soul'll be 'morrow? Only Sonmi the east an' the compass an' the atlas, Yay, only the atlas o' clouds.david mitchell
