or the impossible happens

Tom is angry. Everyone acts as if building the town is a certainty even though so far they only have half a deal. Just a few days ago, he told Alice: ‘Don’t you know that you haven’t won yet? The town will never be built unless the government agrees, or unless you forego the experiment.’
‘I know.’
‘Then why are you keeping up the illusion that everything will work out? You say you don’t lie. But this here is a lie unless you suddenly figure out how to become a diplomat.’

quotes book 4/1

‘I thought politics was stuck in kindergarten. Turns out it’s still in the nursery.’

Questions open doors.’
