Gears

Tags: Cory Doctorow Quotes

From Makers by Cory Doctorow. About friends, who lost each other, and then found each other again.

They were like gears that had once emerged from a mill with perfectly precise teeth, gears that could mesh and spin against each other, transferring energy.
    They were like gears that had been ill-used in machines, apart from each other, until their precise teeth had been chipped and bent, so that they no longer meshed.
    They were like gears, connected to one another and mismatched, clunking and skipping, but running still, running still.
