„The past was gone, the dead were dead and did not speak, and everybody dies; one day Oberg would be dead and silent, too, and that was as it should be: the broad and welcoming ocean of oblivion. It made life bearable. It was sacred. It should not be tampered with.“

—  Robert Charles Wilson, Memory Wire, Memory Wire (1987), Chapter 20 (p. 179)
