Quotes and Quotables


Welcome to the Teman-teman from the start Quotes and Quotables section of our website.

In this section we have included all the quotes we have used in our text, together with some quotes and poems that are relevant to the themes of our story, but are not actually in our text.

Quotes and quotables is not intended to be comprehensive; nor is it particularly or necessarily representative of our taste in literature.  Instead, it has been included simply to assist the readers of our story to identify quotes and encourage them to begin their own collection.
