Isolation Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

Prior: I love you Louis. [...] I really do. But you can't come back. Not ever. (5.8.15-17)

Looks like we've got ourselves a parallel! Louis and Joe both try to go back to the significant others they started with at the beginning of Millennium Approaches, and both are rejected. Both Harper and Prior have suffered greatly in isolation, but they've also gained personal strength from being alone.
