"I en viss, icke närmare bestämbar mening, bestod han bara av citat. Hur fruktansvärt stark detta gjorde honom, anade han bara."
ur "Vad som inte dödar oss, tenderar att göra oss starkare" i Berättelser om lyckliga människor av Lars Gustafsson
"I saw them all, suddenly, for just a moment, through non-Radchaai eyes, an eddying crowd of unnervingly ambiguously gendered people.[...]Twenty years of habit overtook me, and for an instant I despaired of choosing the right pronouns, the right terms of address. But I didn't need to do that here. I could drop that worry, a small but annoying weight I had carried all this time. I was home."
