- The Tombs of Atuan, "Chapter 2: The Wall Around the Place" — "You know, I used to live by the sea when I was little. Our village was right behind the dunes, and we used to go down and play on the beach sometimes."
- The Tombs of Atuan, "Chapter 4: Dreams and Tales" — "Oh, I was the sixth girl my mother and father had, and they just couldn’t bring up so many and marry them all off. So when I was seven they brought me to the Godking’s temple and dedicated me. That was in Ossawa."
