Here are a few more quotations:
I had been afraid of the awful presence of the river, which was the soul of the river, but through her [Ultima] I learned that my spirit shared in the spirit of all things.
The tragic consequences of life can be overcome by the magical strength that resides in the human heart.; [Ultima] bore herself with dignity, and although she was very small she was ready to do battle with all the terrible evil about which I had just heard.
I knew I had witnessed a miraculous thing, the appearance of a pagan god, a thing as miraculous as the curing of my uncle Lucas . . .This is what I expected God to do at my first holy communion!
I realized that the owl had been with me throughout the night. It had watched over all that had happened on the bridge. Suddenly the terrible, dark fear that had possessed me was gone.
Her are a couple of quotes for good vs. evil quotes. "The tragic consequences of life can be overcome by the magical strength that resides in the human heart." and "The sun was good. The men of the Llano were men of the sun. The men of the farms along the river were men of the moon. But we were all children of the white sun".
