"You have sinned, have you not?"

"I suppose so."

"Suppose? No, you know it. You are still young. In your heart, I am sure you are good. But you have sinned. You are a sinner."

"Perhaps that's what man is supposed to be -- a sinner. Perhaps God made him a sinner, and it's best to leave it that way."

...

"It is strange, sidi."

"What is strange?" Claude asked him.

"To see the mountains now. After so long in the deserts, one almost forgets that there are mountains. That there are forests and lakes and rivers and fields and cities. One thinks there is nothing else in all the world, but only deserts."

Claude nodded. "Yes, one forgets," he said. "That the world is many things; has many faces." And then, a little later: "That God Himself, who made the world, has many faces."
