  2. Millions and millions of years would still not give me half enough time to describe that tiny instant of all eternity when you put your arms around me and I put my arms around you.
  3. When truth is no longer free, freedom is no longer real: the truths of the police are the truths of today.
  4. We should try to be happy, just to set an example.
