“Fairness is an illusion. Neither effort nor intention holds title to the nature or form of either the present or the future.” His lips crack a tiny smile. “And if the sincere effort has no title, what interest can the bellow or the lamentation hold?”
“The humans on Amadeen have a different way of putting it.” I observe.
Davidge faces me and asks, “What’s that?”
“Gav Cudak, how have you managed to live as long as you have?”
“I’m not as honest with everyone, Ro, as I have been with you. Also, I run very fast.”
