7. "Say to your soul—"Come, soul, wake up: thou art not now about to read the newspaper; thou art not now perusing the pages of a human poet to be dazzled by his flashing poetry; thou art coming very near to God, who sits in the Word like a crowned monarch in his halls.

So be on the stir, my soul: be on the stir, and bow not sleepily before the awful throne of the Eternal."

"We would bestow some pains here in minutely describing all the mad pranks which Jones played on this occasion could we be well assured that the reader would take the same pains in perusing them, but as we are apprehensive that after all the labour which we should employ in painting this scene the said reader would be very apt to skip it entirely over, we have saved ourself that trouble.

Bright-eyed Westerners about to die and be reborn in the humid jungles of Peru, drinking the hallucinogenic brew ayahuasca..."

33. "Magnus remembered a town in Peru whose Quechua name meant "quiet place." He recalled even more vividly being obscenely drunk and unhappy over his heartbreak of that time, and the maudlin thoughts that had recurred to him over the years, like an unwanted guest slipping in through his doors: that there was no peace for such as he, no quiet place, and there never would be.Except he found himself remembering lying in bed with Alec—all of their clothes on, lounging on the bed on a lazy afternoon, Alec laughing, head thrown back, the marks Magnus had left on his throat very plain to see."

39. "Why do so many today want to wander off to South Africa or Kenya or India or Russia or Honduras or Costa Rica or Peru to help with justice issues but not spend the same effort in their own neighborhood or community or state? Why do young suburbanites, say in Chicago, want to go to Kentucky or Tennessee to help people but not want to spend that same time to go to the inner city in their own area to help with justice issues? I asked this question to a mature student in my office one day, and he thought he had a partial explanation: 'Because my generation is searching for experiences, and the more exotic and extreme the better. Going down the street to help at a food shelter is good and it is just and some of us are doing that, but it's not an experience. We want experiences."

41. "Ibu, rasa nyaman selalu membuat orang-orang sulit berubah. Celakanya, kami sering kali tidak tahu kalau kami sudah terjebak oleh perasaan nyaman itu... Padahal di luar sana, di tengah hujan deras, petir, guntur, janji kehidupan yang lebih baik boleh jadi sedang menanti. Kami justru tetap bertahan di pondok reot dengan atap rumbia yang tampias di mana-mana, merasa nyaman, selalu mencari alasan untuk berkata tidak atas perubahan, selalu berkata 'tidak'...Ibu, rasa takut juga selalu membuat orang-orang sulit berubah. Celakanya, kami sering kali tidak tahu kalau hampir semua yang kami takuti hanyalah sesuatu yang bahkan tidak pernah terjadi... Kami hanya gentar oleh sesuatu yang boleh jadi ada, boleh jadi tidak. Hanya mereka-reka, lantas menguntai ketakutan itu, bahkan kami tega menciptakan sendiri rasa takut itu, menjadikannya tameng untuk tidak mau berubah."
