“The language of sex seemed to echo with Shop: as a Playboy, apparently, you got hammered or plastered, then you nailed or screwed or drilled a woman who was built, or had a rack.”
Lisa Grunwald, The Irresistible Henry House

“But 'contentment'. Is that happiness? Or is that only resignation wearing a funny hat?”
Lisa Grunwald, Whatever Makes You Happy

“There is a strong connection between our ability to use our hands in useful work, and our ability to find happiness in daily life... daily repetitive tasks (are) the compulsive calmness that infuses our pedestrian chores with poetry. - Annie Modessitt”
Lisa Grunwald, Whatever Makes You Happy
