"I have to stop myself from touching him, because he is so frightened. But using my hands is like language for me, or better; words are so small, so far from what I want them to mean. I can never say exactly what I am feeling, not even in my old language, and especially not in this newer one. There are too many places only skin can reach, only the feeling of fingertips and the endings of nerves. Electricity is the closest idea, or vibrations, or maybe chemistry. There is so much I never study because my schooling is so broken into pieces and in so many different places."

Rosner, Elizabeth. 2001. The Speed of Light. New York, New York: The Ballantine Publishing Group. p. 143.
