What follows we cannot know

Todays quotation is from Island of Bones by Imogen Robertson.

“I do not believe in spirits, Mrs Westerman. Neither Addie nor my father have visited me to claim justice or confess, and I have been too long in this world to expect it or reward virtue. The world does not care who lives or dies, or why, but I still think we may search for truth, that such a thing exists. That may be the only right thing to do. What follows, we cannot hope to know.”

From Island of Bones by Imogen Robertson.
