"The secret is not to dream,” she whispered. “The secret is to wake up. Waking up is harder. I have woken up and I am real. I know where I come from and I know where I’m going. You cannot fool me any more. Or touch me. Or anything that is mine."

"i wouldn’t say it’s only a French tradition. Don’t people of all languages give nicknames to zose zey care about? Ze boys? I may have a few…I wouldn’t call zem adorable sough. Zat kind I reserve for you, Mignonette."

"Preferential treatment is bad for morale, Captain. Either call all of us ‘min-yon-net’ or none of us. And, I still wager you could count the languages that use ‘oyster sauce’ as a term of endearment on a blind carpenter’s fingers…”
