4. "Quite amazing how determined kings and emperors have been to destroy books. But civilization is built on such desecrations, is it not? Justinian the Great burned all of the Greek scrolls in Constantinople after he codified the Roman law and drove the Ostrogoths from Italy. And Shih Huang Ti, the first Emperor of China, the man who unified the five kingdoms and built the Great Wall, decreed that every book written before he was born should be destroyed."

8. "His eyes went soft and silver as she spoke. Zhe shi jie shang, wo shi zui ai ne de, he whispered. She understood it. In all the world, you are what I love the most."
