A place where I can share the quotes that I have collected (and keep collecting) over the years. I have gathered them from all sorts of sources. The "Quote of the Day" posts will always be a quote from a book and may be on any topic.

Quote of the Day

Jerry looked at his big, gentle author, wondered momentarily where in him dwelt the knowledge, the somber awareness of mankind's troubled life, which were reflected in Look Away, Stranger. But he had wondered much the same about many authors, and found speculation idle. They hid themselves, by intent or accident, behind many facades; they seldom looked, and often did not talk, like authors.

The Long Skeleton
(p 37)
