“The man who makes light of what he's won is never able to defend it, and the man who doesn't know how to defend what he's won will lose far more than just his treasure!”
Marianne Fritz, The Weight of Things

“This is the Distinguished Dr. Primarius Gottfried Trimm," Wilhelm whispered, looking imploringly, if not quite with outright horror, at his wife, who in general had little understanding of social hierarchies.

"Aha," Willhelmine said, adding: "He's a bit of a porker.”
Marianne Fritz, The Weight of Things

“Was the longing still there and the burning silence?”
Marianne Fritz, The Weight of Things
