At some point in the book Loyd said something to Codi about our souls.  How did he describe our souls?

The description gave me goose bumps and I thought was such a great way to describe what the soul is.  I am sorry I did not write it down.  I had borrowed the book from a friend who needed it back so I was unable to look for the line.  I am confined to my home  and a wheelchair due to MS so do not get to the library very often or to a book store.  Thanks so much.

In the second to last chapter of the book, Codi remembers what Loyd told her about souls.  She is talking with her father, and says,

"Maybe the reason you gave yourself to this town doesn't matter that much.  Maybe what matters is just that you did it.  Maybe that makes you a good man. You know what Loyd told me one time...He thinks people's dreams are made out of what they do all day...It's what you do that makes your soul, not the other way around...It's what you do that makes your soul" Chapter 27).
