“A library doesn’t need windows, Andrew. We have books, which are windows into worlds we never even dreamed possible.”
Chris Grabenstein, Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library

“I figure when you come to a crossroads, you have a choice: right turn, left turn, straight ahead. Or you can just pull over to the side of the road and call it quits. But if you've got a good stretch of road up ahead and someone fun to travel it with, why stay stuck in the galdern ditch?”
