Some of my favorite Son of a Witch passages:
p. 128: "We are a fountain of shimmering contradictions, most of us. Beautiful in the concept, if we're lucky, but frequently tedious or regrettable as we flesh ourselves out."

p. 130: "In their generous apprehension of the world, for their insatiable appetite for the world, the young are to be forgiven."

p. 131: "[Liir] circled the Emerald City, afraid if he landed he would return to being slightly dead. How could anyone live without flying?"
