Anna had been sold off many times. Her former masters hadn’t quite been able to put their finger on what was wrong with this cat-eyed girl. - P107

Without any relations to be sold with her, Anna was a solitary being, connected to no one and nothing in the world. - P108

Sky’s camouflage of leaves, mud, and vines allowed her to flawlessly disappear into the swamp canopy. - P79

BILLY FELL QUIET AFTER FERDINAND’S TEASING. It stung a little, but the thought of leaving Freewater with the woodcutters was a bad alternative. Out there, Billy was certain he’d be hunted. - P93

Being with Sanzi helped Billy forget that feeling. But being with Sanzi created all sorts of other feelings, too. - P93

In the excitement he forgot to release the handle. Instead of catapulting the stone, the sling wrapped around his arm and the stone struck him in the head. "Ouch!" he cried. For a moment, Sanzi’s heart sank. But Billy’s scream scared the pigs and they began running right toward Sanzi’s target tree. He’d done it! - P105

아아아…. 저게 헤일메리 문양에 있던 소문자 ‘t’였구나. ‘타우세티’의 타우였어. 그러네. - <프로젝트 헤일메리>, 앤디 위어 - 밀리의 서재

영원처럼 느껴지는 긴 시간이 지나고 나자 공포가 사그라지기 시작한다. 인간의 두뇌란 놀라운 존재다. 우리는 거의 모든 것에 익숙해질 수 있다. 나는 적응하는 중이다. - <프로젝트 헤일메리>, 앤디 위어 - 밀리의 서재

저건…. 저건 외계의 우주선이다. 외계인이, 우주선을 만들 정도의 지능이 있는 외계인들이 만든.


인류는 우주에 혼자가 아니다. 그리고 나는 방금 우리의 이웃을 만났다.

She wrapped them each in an old sock and as Rick and Ron were commandeering a long knife, Nora stealthily placed a meat-filled sock in the bottom of each of their packs. Nora had her octopus ways. - P56

As I eyed the three people in front of me, that mud time came to mind. Deep rust-colored mud covered their skin. Leaves and branches, strung on by vines and rope, looped around their heads and hair, down their bellies and to their toes. They were trees come to life, with no telling where leaves and mud stopped and where their bodies began. - P61

"Everyone will be happy to hear you’re living free," said David. Suleman smiled for the first time. "Is there any other way to live?" - P61

"Hey!" Ada called after him. "Bye," she said, pulling down three fingers and waving goodbye with the two left over. Suleman returned the two-finger wave, then he was gone. - P64

"No plantation ever had me. Not here." Suleman pointed to his head. "I ran three times." He held up his two-fingered hand. "The overseer took one each time. Now, plantations belong to me," said Suleman. - P41

Forest, river, vines and bush, watch for the sinkhole, more vines and bush, green water, tree boat, lily pads, secret water door, tree hideout, more rowing and walking, tree people, zigzag through the brush, I said to myself. - P68

There was Daria on the sky bridge, floating over the swamp below. She was so far away she was like one of the small stick dolls Old Joe made for the children in the quarters. Daria stopped, put a horn to her mouth, lifted her face, and blew a long moan. - P71

Then I let my mind remember the steps. Forest, river, vines and bush, watch for the sinkhole, more vines and bush… what’s next… green water. How could I forget the green water?! Tree boat, lily pads, secret water door… tree hideout, more rowing and walking, tree people, zigzag through the brush, sky bridge. Again. Forest, river, vines and bush, watch for the sinkhole, more vines and bush, green water, tree boat, lily pads, secret water door, tree hideout, more rowing and walking, tree people, zigzag through the brush. Got it. Mama would get it, too. - P74

"What’s Freewater?" asked Ada. That’s exactly what I wanted to know. - P75

I’d learned most everything in my life by watching. - P73

처음에 나는 그 사진이 남양南洋군도에서 왔다고 생각했다. 카우치 위에 비스듬히 기대앉아 세상을 향해 다리를 벌리고 있는 여자의 모습이 담긴, 가장자리가 불에 그슬린 사진이었다. 불길의 자취는 사진 아래쪽에 반원 모양으로 남아 있었다. 검은 그 반원의 양옆으로는 ‘Pier……s 1895)’라는 글자가 남아 있었다.

여기는 프랑크푸르트 공항이고 비행기가 이륙하려면 아직 시간이 조금 남아 있다. 그러니 먼저 그 사진을 가지러 고향집으로 내려가던 그해 가을에 대해 말하려 한다. 모든 일들은 그 입체 누드사진 한 장에서 시작됐으니까.

구토 끝에 바라본 지평선에는 애잔한 슬픔 같은 게 맺혀 있었다. 목을 길게 빼고 서 있는 나무 전봇대며 거기 삐딱하게 매달린 가로등 따위가 모두 지난날의 한순간을 반성하는 것 같았다. 기름 냄새만 맡지 않았더라도. 그런 생각이 머리를 스쳤다
