Julie of the Wolves Isolation Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Part.Paragraph)

Quote #1

Miyax was lost. (1.2)

Well, folks, you can't get much more lonely than that, now can you? Just imagine how you would feel if you were the only human on an expanse of grass that stretches for hundreds of miles in every darn direction.

Quote #2

"Maybe you'll learn to like it so much, you'll travel with me," she said, and threw him another chunk of meant. "That would be nice, for I will be lonely without you." (1.242)

Though she's lost, Miyax manages not to be so lonely after all. Turns out, the tundra is full of friends, as long as you know how to find them. Her bird-friend Tornait is another example of this.

Quote #3

The wind, the empty sky, the deserted earth – Miyax had felt the bleakness of being left behind once before. (2.1)

What a sad, sad moment. The loss of the wolves feels just as awful as the loss of her mother, which just goes to show how important they were to her.
