from "The Ones who Walk Away from Omelas" - ending - Ursula Le Guin

This quote was added by christelhelen
Each alone, they go west or north, towards the mountains. They go on. They leave Omelas, they walk ahead into the darkness, and they do not come back. The place they go towards is a place even less imaginable to most of us than the city of happiness. I cannot describe it at all. It is possible that it does not exist. But they seem to know where they are going, the ones who walk away from Omelas.

and I have checked that indeed 'They go on' should end with a period.
