“...space flight still had a long way to go to catch up with the safety record of the milkshake industry.”
Kevin Fong

Jenny Uglow
“Before the battle they had been discussing whether there might be life after death, and Windham and Rochester had made a pact that if there was, the first to die would come back and tell the other. But, said Rochester, he [Windham] never did.”
Jenny Uglow

Penelope Fitzgerald
“To every separate person a thing is what he thinks it is – in other words, not a thing, but a think.”
Penelope Fitzgerald, The Gate of Angels

Mary Ann Shaffer
“I believe I am becoming pathetic. I'll go further, I believe that I am in love with a flower-growing, wood-carving quarryman/carpenter/pig farmer. In fact, I know I am. Perhaps tomorrow I will become entirely miserable at the thought that he doesn't love me back - may, even, care for Remy- but at this precise moment I am succumbing to euphoria. My head and stomach feel quite odd. ”
Mary Ann Shaffer, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Stephen King
“The dead do not see, unless they look from a brighter place than this darkling plain where ignorant armies clash by night.”
Stephen King, Under the Dome
