There is this desire, this need to be to be whole.

And yet we are male and female, imperfect and needy.

And this tremendous guilt for our sin,

Of wanting to be something more than we are.

And this hell we have created,

Could we not just be at peace with our incompleteness?

"Don't be angry with them. Fear is only human." he said, after her outburst.

"But so is courage!" she cried.

The Impossible Economic System

I wanted to show in the book how the fate of the slave trader is really rather the same as the fate of someone who might be an executive of Shell or a mining company, who's originally a good man who gets bound up in the impossible economic system and then is actually dragged down by it.

"If you and I go on a journey it's hell and we get dysentary and it's misery. If he goes, because he's an adventurer to himself first, these amazing things happen."

Les mythomanes, "They are not conscious liars. They invent to increase everything about themselves and their lives and they believe it. They believe everything they say."
