“The men who cannot laugh at themselves frighten me even more than those who laugh at everything.”
Anne Perry, The Whitechapel Conspiracy

“Please don’t think so lightly of liking someone. It’s terribly important. It is a kind of loving, you know, and one that frequently lasts a lot longer than romance.

Anne Perry
