Here are a few quotes,


"He is a client of mine...I am treating his child for a scorpion sting."

Beggars: "The beggars were thrilled with the news. They know that there was nothing as generous with handouts as a poor man who had suddenly gained wealth. They were giggly with anticipation."

Pearl buyers:"Each one thought how the patron could not live forever and someone had to take his place. And each one thought how with some capital (money) he could get a new start."

THey all think about how they can personally profit from Kino's good fortune.
