"It's as if the painting opens up a door, thinks Linus. As if it draws you into a different world, shakes you up, and hurls you back out into your own, and suddenly, that world looks just a little different." (Pg. 148-149)

"If he couldn't have imagined that we'd win the war, he wouldn't have gone!...He went because he could imagine the future. The right future. I mean, not the future where everyone has to do what the enemy wants, but the other future. The future where we're free to think for ourselves. That's why he went to fight. Because he understood that it's something worth fighting for." (Pg. 129)
