Oil on Water (2010)Edit

  • "You must take a year off, one of these days, before you’re old and tired and weighed down by responsibility. Go away somewhere, and read. Read all the important books. Educate yourself, then you’ll see the world in a different way."
  • "Can you continue to love a person regardless of such shortcomings? Maybe because you hope to save them? Or because you can't help it? Isn't that what love is all about?"
  • "Our job is to find out the truth, even if it is buried deep in the earth."
  • "The further from home you wander, the closer you get to Siberia."
