“If you don’t want to sink, you better figure out how to swim” (Walls 66).
“We had no pillows, but Dad said that was part of his plan. He was teaching us to have good posture. The Indians didn’t use pillows, either, he explained, and look how straight they stood” (Walls 18).

“‘Okay, kids’ Dad said, ‘the civilians are revolting. We better skeddadle'” (Walls 109).
“When Dad went crazy, we all had our own ways of shutting down and closing off, and that was what we did that night” (Walls 115).
“‘Your father’s the only one who can help himself,’ Mom said. ‘Only he knows how to fight his own demons'” (Walls 117).
