From a passage of the book: "Size is nothing. The heart is all that counts. And you have the best, softest and most caring heart I ever have encountered. Because of your heart, you survived the hardship the Indians have put you through.’ Matica smiled. ‘Thank you, Amos.’ "Lack of knowledge can do so much damage, cause so much pain." "But now they slowly understand that disability is not a sickness or whatever else they thought I have." Her eyes clouded over when she continued. ‘Well, in a way they have told me, I know. But again, it is only now because of Talon. I see.’ He could hear bitterness in her voice. ‘Do not judge them and do not let it bug you. They did not know better. I thought you knew that. We still have to learn and understand not to reject unexplained things but help that person."
